The quick answer to this question is it depends.
You see, not everything from Epacket can be delivered to South Africa.
While it is annoying that Epacket USA doesn’t ship directly to South Africa, there is a solution. This solution allows you to order from Epacket and receive them in South Africa, all for a low price.
How to Get Items from Epacket USA Delivered to South Africa
To receive orders from Epacket, you must have a physical US address – there are no two ways about it.
You can order from Epacket with a US address, where your packages will be delivered.
I know you’re probably questioning how to get an address. Maybe you don’t live in the US or even know anybody who does.
Thankfully there are companies called Freight Forwarders that can give you a US address to use. These companies are based in the USA and will assist you in shipping your items internationally.
Once you sign up with one, you’ll be given a US address. You can use this address when ordering any goods or services from American companies.
MyUS.com is our favorite Freight Forwarding service as they will ship to all cities located in South Africa. That includes these cities:
Gauteng, North-West, Mpumalanga, Orange Free State, Northern Cape, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, Western Cape.
We’ll tell you why we think they’re the best. Firstly, they don’t add any hidden fees, unlike other companies. This means they offer very low rates. And secondly, they provide an ultra-reliable service to their customers.
We’ve used them for years, and in that time, we’ve shipped many packages.
You can use your MyUS.com address when ordering from any US-based store, including Epacket.
MyUS will accept the order on your behalf. Once you’re ready for it to be shipped to South Africa, they’ll send it out.
As a bonus, if you order multiple items online, MyUS will combine them into one large shipment before sending it to you.
Freight Forwarding services allow you to buy things from the USA, despite living in another part of the world!
