I've asked FastTech support about this and they couldn't give an answer

One says 8-12 days, Routed By FastTech and it's free


the other says 5-10 days and cost like a $1-$2 extra

Are you sure about the naming of both these shipping options?

With my current cart I can only see two occurrences of USA Express ePacket.
One handled by China Post and the other one by Hong Kong Post.

I an not sure that the Hong Kong Post option is working right now.
And with the China Post option there is a risk for security check issues at the point of export at least until the Chinese 70 year celebration is over.

Now I see what you mean.
Let's wait for @Anniepans explanation.

In my case one occurrence says "by Hong Kong Post" and the other doesn't mention anything else than "USA Express ePacket", which in practical terms would mean China Post.

But then I also have a European address.

I'm united States

I've been paying the extra thinking it was faster but its always gone through china post instead of HK post which I imagine is slower than the two.

I assume HK post should be faster

Not necessarily at this point because of some currently influencing factors.
Read post #2 in this thread including the linked post by @Anniepan and the thread it is part of.

I feel like all the options to US are slow, unless you want to pay a ton. If your near an entry point it is a bit better I guess, when my stuff hits Miami it still takes about as long as if I ordered in US, and that is same state. I mean like if I ordered from California it takes about the same time as when the free post gets to Miami. I have paid extra before like a buck or two, it's still stupid slow.

This might be our only option if this BS keeps up, that will not be fun at all.

Hello AceOfPilots,

USA express ePacket is the ePacket shipping via Hong Kong Post, but our shipping carriers stop this shipping line recently, so if our customer choose this shipping method, we will change it to US express ePacket, ship via Mainland China Post.

Thank you.

@anniepan is there any difference between china post vs Hong Kong Post typically in regards of processing and shipping speed?

So United States Express ePacket = China Post

USA Express ePacket = Hong Kong Post
