How to Get Items from Gmarket USA Delivered to South Africa
To have any item delivered overseas from the Gmarket USA, you’ll need a physical address based in the United States.
This address is what you’ll use to receive packages from Gmarket.
I’m sure you’re asking how you even get a physical US address if you don’t live there or even have friends or relatives in the US.
These days you can use a Freight Forwarder to get a physical US address. These companies are based in the USA and will provide you with an address to use once you sign up with them.
You can then use that address when placing orders on your favorite American online stores, and they’ll ship it internationally to you.
