Did you ever tried purchasing stuff from online US website and came to know that they won’t ship to your country! It sucks but you don’t need to worry. There is a solution to every problem.

There are many companies in the market who can purchase and send these packages directly to you, just for some extra bucks. Yes, you can buy from any US store including Amazon, eBay, BestBuy, Apple, and even from US local shops while sitting anywhere around the world. It’s simple and straight forward.

These companies provide virtual addresses and are called package forwarding companies. In this post, I am going to share some best package/mail forwarding companies that offer excellent service at affordable rates. I will focus more on the quality of service instead of price, as during my research I came to know that some fake companies steal customer packages and provide lame excuses. Customer usually can’t do anything to get their money back. So don’t trust any company before reading this post thoroughly.


How do these companies work?

When you sign up on any of these sites, they will instantly provide you a custom address where you can receive different types of packages and letters depending upon your account type and their policies.

You might be thinking about how these companies can provide addresses to thousands of different customers. Do they have a lot of offices or warehouse? – No. They only have a few warehouses, and they give the same address to every customer. The trick here is that they add customer number with their address, so as soon as the package arrives they automatically add it to account with the respective customer code. This way they can provide an address to a virtually unlimited number of people.


My Payment Method is not accepted, or I don’t have Paypal

Your payment method may get rejected by these merchants as a security concern, but don’t worry, these companies can also help you with financial service for some extra bucks which mean you pay them using your preferred payment method and they will take care of the rest.


What if the site does not allow viewing product from my country?

You can’t see the product or unable to check the price because you belong to another country. That’s not a problem! Install any free VPN like Hotspot Shield or Cyberghost and then surf site like a US customer.


Is it safe?

The last question in your mind may be that; is it safe to buy via these companies? What if my parcel didn’t reach or What if they don’t forward me? – Well, you shouldn’t worry if you choose the right company and the proper method, but if you didn’t do so, then you are responsible for your losses.


What’s the right Method to ship via these companies?

First of all, choose the company which suits you the most. Then check company review on trust pilot and other similar sites to make sure you have made the right choice. The second rule is to have a tracking number for every shipment. Ask the seller to provide you a tracking number so you can claim parcel from the company if they lost it.
Choose parcel tracking and insurance option when shipping to your home. This way you will make sure that you receive your package and if not then you have insurance to cover the loss.


Can I receive letters with these companies?

Yes, many companies provide letter forwarding service for some extra cost. But you might get in trouble with the ammo as USP require form 1538 which need paperwork from your local law firms, means additional cost and time.
These companies also provide photos of received letters if they are not confidential and they can even shred them on your request.


What if I want to return my order?

Some of these companies also provide return service for 5-10$ plus postage fee. You can return package after you received it in your account. If you already received your parcel at your home address via these companies and you want to return the package to the seller, then you can do it directly without sending to these middleman companies. Confirm with the seller before doing this.


I am from the US, can I still use these companies?

Yes, these companies can also receive an order on your behalf. You can either pick from their warehouse to save money or get it delivered to your home. This way, you can save 10% shopping tax if your forwarding company has an in Oregon or other tax-free states. Also, you can use these services to receive packages and letter when you are not at home. These companies provide the facility to keep your parcel in their warehouse for 10 – 90 days depending upon company policy.

Benefits of using Virtual address for Purchasing

There are several benefits of buying through these companies. Number one: They can save you money if you ship through these companies instead of buying directly from your country. (Make sure there aren’t any extra custom clearance charges.)
Number Two: If you are living in states, then you can save some tax purchasing through companies having a warehouse in a tax-free state.


Custom Clearance

Customs clearance is also another big issue if you are buying something that requires approval or not legal in your country. Don’t buy it in this case. I also got in trouble when trying to import drones from the US as they are not legal in my country.

Also, keep in mind that you may have to pay up to 40% tax on your product depending upon your country’s rules and regulations. Most small items are custom free, but it’s better to check before buying.
Most Common Type of prohibited items includes Sprays, Batteries, drones, cotton, leather, fireworks, ammo, etc


Back To You

I hope this article helps you decide the best service. If I have to make a choice I will go with USGoBuy for small packages and ShopandShip for expensive products. Both of them offer excellent service. Now it’s up to you to decide which service you are going to choose.

You can also share your experiences with these companies.
