Shipping to China & Hong Kong
USPS has temporarily suspended the guarantee on Priority Mail Express International® service destined for China and Hong Kong due to widespread airline cancellations and restrictions into this area.
To ship hand sanitizers including wipes, you must use USPS Retail Ground, Parcel Select, or Parcel Select Lightweight. These services are only available through your local Post Office™ branch.
Most hand sanitizers, including wipes, contain alcohol and are flammable in nature and are therefore handled and shipped as hazardous mater (HAZMAT) in the US Mail™. As flammable materials, these products are limited to surface transportation-only in domestic mail. It is prohibited to send these materials by International Mail including APO/FPO/DPO (military) destinations.
If you are unsure whether or not the product that you are shipping is flammable, please check with the manufacturer of the product before mailing.
