I am using USgoBuy from more than one year now. I am regularly buying from ebay auctions and shipping through usgobuy.com
Their service is very reliable and has many advantages over other package forwarders.
There is no signing-up fee or any monthly subscription fees. I can choose whenever I want to ship the packages through them at my convenience.

I can shop offers even when the merchant doesn't ship to my country. They consolidate packages free of cost (first 10 package) from different merchants into a single package for international shipping which can save on hefty shipping costs.


They have added more shipping options recently, which specialize in shipping to my country. So, now I get my items more cheaply and early than before.

Their customer service replies promptly and assists in every way possible. I contacted them so many times with my queries, worries, confusions, but I must say that every single time they have resolved my issues satisfactorily.

I have never had any problems in dealing with USgobuy and would recommend their professional yet personal services to everyone looking to purchase and ship goods from USA.

Thank you

I've been shopping online for quite a while now, and I'm a highly ranked customer on Ebay but all these years I haven't heard of their shipping offers, I knew about thanks to "Myinternationalshopping" community :) so I don't believe it's that popular , but it's only my personal opinion :)

Just been reading about the ebay global shipping thingy, it looks quite good. Does anyone know how the prices compare with other delivery methods for buying online from ebay with worldwide shipping?

How many of their sellers actually use it, is it popular? I guess it probably is!

I think you will need to speak with your seller on eBay. They will also be able to tell you the worldwide shipping costs.

Thank you very much for your replies. I am buying from America so this might work, I will ask the seller if they can do it.

Do I need to speak with ebay to do this, do you know? Is it cheaper or more expensive than a regular FF or reshipper?

I think it is only from the US or UK, but they will ship to Australia. He hasn't said which country the stuff he has bought has come from, only that he wants it delivered to Australia.

So I just thought I would point it out, if he has bought from eBay US or UK.

I just re-read what I wrote, it wasn't very clear so have no editied the post to , hopefully, make it more clear.

I have just written an article explaining eBay.co.uk Global Shipping Programme .

It is a way of eBay offering international shipping. You may need to ask the seller if they are participating and if no whether they can join.

Basically it works a bit like a freight forwarder, the seller ships the item to the ebay shipping centre and then they forward it on to you wherever you are in the world. The buyer pays the international shipping and they can sort out import duties too. It is run by an international delivery company.

Unfortunately I don't think returns are included and you will probably have to pay using Paypal.

Check it out, it is available for international shipping from auctions based in the US and UK, and maybe other countries too, it may just do what you are looking for.

Yeah I think you can do that, when you subscribe to a mail forwarding service, they well provide you with addresses in the US, UK, AU, Canada and others depending on the service, so if the seller ships only to the US , you use the US address the service gave you as the shipping address, the seller will send it to that address then the service will send it to your address at AU, but you'll still have to pay shipping fees. You'll find more about the different mail forwarding companies here on the website, there are discounts for both Borderlinx forwarding service and "Shop and ship" service by Aramex. Hope that I managed to help you :)

Don't really know the answer you want, but I bet that you will be able to use a package forwarder for your auction purhase.

I don't see why they would not do it. it is up to the seller, you will have to ask them first and probably pay the shipping from them to whichever reshipper you decide to use.

I won an ebay auction and am wondering if I can use a freight forwarder to get the thing over to Oz?

I didn't realise that they seller didn't offer international shipping, and they aren't prepared to ship it for me, so might cancel the sale, but I thought, can I get them to post to a forwarder who will reship to me in Australia?

If anyone has any experience or knows the answer I will much appreciate the answer!

Thanks alot.
