China Post Shipping Update and Concerns February 03 2020

Most packages are not able to leave China at this time. For items shipping from our inventory in China we cannot guarantee when they will be processed by China Post. Please take a look at our inventory in Seattle if you need something quickly shipped.

Continued Shipping Delays

As China continues to combat the Corona Virus we are seeing additional delays on packages shipping from China. China Post ePacket orders are being accepted in Kunming, but are being blocked by customs. Hopefully they will be released soon. We apologize for any delays. We will update this page with any additional information as we have it.

Please continue to keep the Chinese people in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this terrible time.

Corona Virus Package Safety

There is little to no risk of contamination from packages coming from China. The virus can’t live for very long outside of a biological host. Packages coming from China are in transit much longer than the virus can survive. The CDC released a statement about packages coming from China. “Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of 2019-nCoV associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of 2019-nCoV in the United States associated with imported goods.” You can stay informed here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html
