Hello @ashleyandamaya1 !


You should definitely use ePackets shipping allows your customers to receive their purchase in a reasonable timeframe, while allowing them to track their order while they wait. And if you are dropshipping then it is the best fit for your business model. Below are some benefits of using ePackets:


Faster: Standard methods of shipping from China to other parts of the world usually take months. ePacket delivery gives you much faster delivery times. Of course, you’re still no match to Amazon’s delivery times, but you can reasonably expect your delivery to reach your customer within three weeks.


Cheaper: ePacket has lower shipping rates so you can price your products more competitively.


 Door-to-door China ePacket tracking: ePacket delivery provides customers the option of end-to-end tracking without additional costs. Being able to track the  ePacket easily on official websites such as EMS and USPS offers a huge benefit.


 Free returns on any undeliverable items: Another benefit to customers is the sense of security from knowing that any undeliverable item is returned, without any additional expense. This in turn improves the customer-merchant relationship, as the online merchants will be able to provide refunds on any packages that were not successfully delivered to customers.


 Payment of postal customs: Any customs, duties, and/or taxes must be paid by the recipient of the shipment. As the ePacket delivery goes through regular custom clearance, customers might be required to pay any applicable taxes and duties.


Hope this helps!
