YS Express to the USA Launched!
Since the China Post e-Packet prices to the USA are so high now and their service is rather slow and unreliable, we created our own Small Parcel service!
Why did we do this?
Rather than having DHL as the sole option for shipping smaller orders to the USA from YunnanSourcing.com, YS Express was created to fill the gap. DHL is a great choice if you want to get 2kg or more of items, OR want something delivered in 7-10 business days, but it's not an economical option for many people.
YS Express is now available for parcels with gross weights (products and packaging) of less than 2kg and is quite a bit more affordable than DHL. The time to delivery is 12-24 business days, with final delivery by USPS or UPS.
How does it work?
The idea is simple. We take orders on YunnanSourcing.com, and those that choose YS Express have their orders prepared and consolidated with other YS Express orders. Once we have about 50 kilograms (usually taking between 2 and 4 days to accumulate enough) we ship it by DHL to our facility in the USA where we then ship each order by USPS or UPS to you!
How does tracking work?
You'll get an email once your consolidated shipment leaves Yunnan, but you won't receive a tracking number at that time. This email is just to let you know that the consolidated shipment is on its way to our US warehouse. Once that shipment has arrived at our warehouse, we will then ship your parcel by USPS or UPS and you'll receive a shipping confirmation email with the tracking number.
