What is ePacket, and why should i use it?

The United States Postal Service, or USPS, and Hongkong Post created the ePacket service to increase mail and shipping options for Hong Kong merchants. 

The ePacket shipping option offers customers tracking and delivery confirmation when purchasing from merchants in Hong Kong who ship to customers in the United States. The ePacket services can only be used for packages that weigh no more than 4.4 pounds, as of 2011. 

The USPS treats these packages like first-class mail once they arrive in the United States. Packages shipped using the ePacket service use barcoded labels that the USPS and Hongkong Post can read and track.  

From our experience delivery time from china to .us or .eu in most cases takes 4-5 weeks or even more.   Using ePacket delivery shipping usually cut the waiting time by a few weeks,
