Don’t be frustrated as there is a convenient solution now available that makes it easy and cheap to get online orders from Rakuten shipped to Australia.
How to Get Items from Rakuten USA Delivered to Australia
Receiving items from Rakuten requires a physical United States postal address – you can’t get around that. This address is where Rakuten will ship your packages to.
How do you go about getting a physical US address to use if you don’t live there?
Did you know that there are lots of US-based companies that will provide you with a physical US address and help you with shipping internationally? These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
Once you join a Freight Forwarding service, they’ll send you a US address that can be used during the checkout process with any US-based retailer.
MyUS.com is our favorite Freight Forwarder as they ship to all cities in Australia, like:
South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland, Northern Territory, Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory.
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 Rakuten.
They’ll get your shipment to their warehouse, where they can combine several individual orders into one large order. MyUS will then send it to you in Australia.
Now you can order from US-based online stores directly as if you were having them delivered to you overseas.
