What is the EMS shown on the shipping option?
EMS (Express Mail Service) is an international express postal service that connects 175* countries and territories, currently the largest delivery network in the world. EMS provides service through post offices worldwide, which makes EMS the most accessible and convenient delivery method among all other logistics options. (*As of June 2022)
For you to receive orders earlier, we always use international express delivery for the orders in our shop. However, due to the delivery area category of each courier service company, some location can be recognized “Remote Area” which costs you much more for delivery. Sometimes, neighborhood postal codes can cost highly different. In this situation, the EMS option will show on the shipping option.
Generally speaking, EMS delivery costs less and takes a few more days than general courier service. If you do not want to pay the huge extra charge due to “remote area,” EMS is the best option for you.

EMS Tracking Information May Delay
It is simple to use EMS tracking service. While the service network is huge and it relies heavily on the labor loading in the post office, the delivery information update may be delayed sometimes. For instance, the tracking update may lag 24 hours or longer during their high working volume or busy working period.
It is required your understanding of both pros and cons when choosing between courier and EMS services.
