Does Amazon.com Ship Internationally To South Africa?
The answer is sometimes: it depends on the item. But in this short article we’ll show you exactly how to buy any product from Amazon.com’s USA store and get it shipped to South Africa, regardless of whether Amazon ships it internationally or not.
Option 1: Buy Directly From Amazon.com
Step 1: Go to Amazon.com’s International Shopping Portal
Amazon’s international section only displays items that are available to ship internationally to countries like South Africa.
Step 2: Create an Account and Set Up Your 1-Click South Africa Address
Next, you’ll need to create an account or login, and then set up a “1-click address” for South Africa. To set this up, visit the “manage addresses” section located in the “your account” dropdown. After inputting your South Africa address, Amazon will only display items that can ship to your country.
Option 2: Use A U.S. Shipping Forwarder
This option tends to be a little more expensive but it enables you to buy any product that Amazon won’t ship directly to South Africa. Package forwarders provide a U.S. address so that you can ship any product to the forwarder and then have them ship it to you in South Africa.
Step 1: Sign Up For A Shipping Forwader
For South Africa customers, our recommendation is MyUS.com because we’ve shipped more than 1,000 packages with six different package forwarders and MyUS has the lowest rates, is tax-free, and is the most popular U.S. shipping forwarder by far.
Signing up is easy, plus you can see exactly how much your shipment will cost before shipping anything to South Africa. Also, if you have any issues placing your Amazon order, MyUS’s concierge service can place the order for you.
Step 2: Buy Your Amazon Product
Once you’ve set up your U.S. shipping address, you’re ready to make your Amazon purchase and get it shipped to South Africa. Just visit the Amazon website, use your MyUS address and place your order!
