Every buyer on AliExpress goes through the same process — selects a product, clicks the pay button, goes to the checkout, and sees a long list of shipping options. Anyone may get confused at the last stage since the names of some delivery methods are quite the same. What is the difference between, say, EMS, e-EMS, and ePacket? Are they trackable or not? What are the pros and cons of each? Here is a chart to illustrate the difference between the three.

As one can see, there are many similarities between EMS and e-EMS. Both delivery methods are:

  • suited for bulky items up to 40-50 kg
  • available in many countries
  • fast
  • expensive

Speaking of the delivery price, EMS is more costly than e-EMS. Based on EMS rules, packets under 500 g are 'documents' (i.e., valuable documents) and must be charged accordingly. On top of that, you have to pay for every extra 500 g. With such rates, the delivery cost may result in a whopping sum.

ePacket is, in turn, the perfect option for lightweight packages (under 2 kg). Reasonable price and fast delivery are its definite advantages.

The above ways of delivery are trackable, which means you can easily track ePacket, EMS, and e-EMS packages on our site.
