    If I am using usps as my shipper should I use a fake name, say I have to get the package from the USPS and sign for it, they might ask for id?

    The second you sign something you are legally responsible for everything in that box. They didn't have an option to have it shipped via EMS? It's pretty awesome, some random asian person in a random car will pull up at your house and deliver.

    everytime something is delivered via EMS it is the USPS who knocks on my door for a signature. DHL its usually a dude with a turban

    Strange they would just leave it on my porch, no signature required. However I live in a rural area where it is safe to leave things outside like that. Not sure if that would even make a difference.

    I'd recommend against using USPS for shipments from China to USA. I've had friends with many lost packages and parcels that showed up 4 months after the delivery date. DHL is typically the safest option when shipping from China.

    EMS takes it to the states and that is where it stops, from there it is all USPS. You can do DHL for an additonal fee though usually
