Epacket is also called EUB, if you bought a item from a Chinese seller, they may give you a tracking number for epacket-ebay or epacket-aliexpress.

Shortcomings of Epacket:
(1) The epacket service is only for package weight less than 2 Kg.
(2) The seller can only use EUB to transit item to limited places, such as US/Canada/France/UK/Australia/Hong Kong.
