e-PAQ Plus is a tracked mail service from Asendia. Unlike a standard courier service, where your package is typically collected and delivered by the same company, tracked mail means your delivery will be handled by the postal service in the country you’re shipping from, but also the postal service in the receiving country. This means that two shipping companies will be involved in the delivery of your package, however, the cost savings of using a tracked mail service like e-PAQ can be significant.
The Asendia e-PAQ range of shipping services are designed as a low-cost option for e-commerce retailers shipping small packages internationally from the US. The good news is, you don’t need to be a business to book e-PAQ through Parcel Monkey. You can ship a package with Asendia e-PAQ Plus using our shipping calculator and you’ll benefit from discounted rates.
e-PAQ Plus uses two shipping services to deliver your package - one in the country you're sending from and one in the receiving country. When you ship from the US with Asendia, the US leg of the journey is handled by USPS, so you can either drop off your package at your local post office or arrange a free collection through USPS from your own mailbox - whichever is more convenient for you.
The company that makes the final delivery will depend on where you're shipping to, but it's typically the postal service in the destination country or a local courier.
How long does e-PAQ Plus take?
e-PAQ Plus is an economy mail service so delivery times will be longer than a standard courier service. For international deliveries from the US, you should allow 6-15 business days.
If your package isn't time-sensitive, e-PAQ is one of the cheapest ways to send a small package internationally from the US and you'll still be able to track your package through to delivery.
You can protect your package up to the value of $50.00 completely free of charge. Just make sure you opt-in to free protection cover when you book.
