The quick answer to this question is it depends.
Not all items from Flipkart can be shipped straight to South Africa.
You needn’t worry about this, though, as there is a way around the restrictions. A solution has been found to order anything from Flipkart and ship it to South Africa. Plus, it’s not expensive at all.
How to Get Items from Flipkart USA Delivered to South Africa
International shipping from Flipkart will still require a physical address in the USA. There are no two ways about it; Flipkart will only ship packages domestically in the US.
So how can you get a physical address in the USA? What if you live in another country and don’t have relatives or friends in the US?
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.
One reason why they’re so good is that they’re cheap. That’s because they don’t charge extra taxes. Plus, they provide a very reliable service.
We’ve worked alongside them for a while now and have shipped lots of items through them.
You can buy any product from Flipkart, or any other US-based store for that matter, and have it shipped to your MyUS.com US-based address.
MyUS.com will then receive your packages on your behalf. Once you’re ready, you can request that they be shipped on to you in South Africa.
In addition to that, MyUS can consolidate multiple orders into one large package before sending them out to you in South Africa.
By using their service, you can order from the US as if you were really there!
