PayPal is out to try to solve this issue, as it announced that it has inked a strategic deal with one of China's largest postal providers and the owner of the largest international mail exchange office in China "” Beijing Post "” to create an international logistics solution known as PayPal Package.
Wayne Wang, the head of corporate communications at PayPal China, says: "Working with Beijing Post, our merchants in China will benefit from its mature import-export system and, ultimately, the speed of an express delivery service for the price of surface mail."
PayPal Package lets merchants track their order delivery online, which means they get to be covered by the e-commerce giant's seller protection policy. It also gives merchants an international delivery service for small parcels, guaranteeing that the items will be on a plane for delivery the same day that the order is received.
