YS Express to the USA - Our Very Own Homegrown Solution to Small Parcels
YS Express to the USA Launched!
Since the China Post e-Packet prices to the USA are so high now and their service is so slow, we decided to create our very own Small Parcel service!
Why did we do this?
Over the last few months customers ordering on YunnanSourcing.com from the USA that wanted to order small amounts only have DHL as a choice. It's a great choice if you want to get 2kg or more of items, OR want something inside of a week, but paying $23.40 for 100 grams of tea not so much a good deal.
YS Express is now available for parcels with gross weights less than 2kg and is cheaper than DHL. The time to delivery is 12-20 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 (should take between 4 and 6 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 (we send your order and dozens of others together under a single DHL shipment) leaves Yunnan (but no tracking number). When the consolidated DHL shipment arrives in the USA we will ship by USPS to you at which time you'll get a second email with a USPS or UPS tracking number.
Here's some sample prices by weight (actual price may vary according to your zip code).
