USPS Delivery Service Suspension to China

The U.S. Postal Service has TEMPORARILY suspended Priority Mail International delivery to China as of Friday, January 28, 2022 due to transportation issues.

If your Priority Mail International parcel is already in transit, the USPS will transport the parcel to China and delivery is expected to be delayed. For packages entering the mail stream after January 28, 2022, the USPS will endorse the item as “Mail Service Suspended — Return to Sender,” returning the parcel to the sender. The USPS will provide a full refund of the shipping costs paid when service to the country of destination is suspended.

Alternate Delivery Options to China
If you have a shipment you need to send to China during this suspension period, we recommend the following options:

UPS International Shipping: Get discounted rates up to 86% off with no peak surcharge

GlobalPost International Standard: Get door-to-door tracking capabilities to over 200 countries

What is GlobalPost International Standard?
GlobalPost International Standard uses a network of postal carriers which provides a similar service to First Class Package International Service at a lower rate. If you don’t see GlobalPost International Standard as an option in your shipping software, contact Customer Care at 1-888-434-0055 (open Monday to Friday, 6 am to 6 pm PT) to request access to GlobalPost carrier services.
