What happens if the product I want cannot be shipped to my country or the shipping is too expensive?
It is a common issue that USA-based companies (like Amazon.com) will not ship packages to certain countries or, in some cases, will not ship internationally at all.
– How do I know if a certain product ships directly to my country? Any answer to this question would be very complicated, especially for Amazon.com. Instead, just try to fill in your actual address as the shipping address. If it is accepted, you are good to go. If not, or if you can’t even choose your country from a menu, that means the answer to the question is “no”, in which case you should keep reading this section.
Moreover, in some other cases, they will ship to your country, but the cost is prohibitive.
The solution to these issues are international mail and package forwarding companies. These companies will provide you with a shipping address in the USA to which your mail or packages are delivered, and from there they will ship them to you at your own address in your own country. You can use this service with Amazon.com, eBay, Target and any other online stores.
– OK… I got it… What should I do next? As stated earlier, first check if Amazon ships Internationally to your country. If it does, just complete your Checkout process and wait to receive your purchase. If it does not, then take a moment to check out any of the many international mail and packaging companies available. For your convenience we have put together a short list of such companies, with their relevant links, which follows rightafter. Set up an account with them – It only takes a few seconds and you only need to do so once! Then, you are done… head back to your Amazon cart, put in the USA-based address provided to you by the international mail and packaging company, and you are all set… It is THAT simple…
You should also keep in mind that in the case of Amazon.com all purchases above $35 come with FREE shipping for US destinations. Hence, as the address you will be using is USA-based, you will receive this benefit too.
At this point, please take a look at the Table below, featuring links to some international mail and packaging companies.
