It is all very simple a package forwarder is someone who will accept a parcel for you from someone and then send it on to you if you are in a different place or country.

It is a good way of shopping from abroad. And is very popular for some people to shop US shops.

Consolidation and repackaging are what they say they are.

Package consolidation.
If you buy many items from different shops and have them delivered to your package forwarder, they will put them together into one parcel to send on to you.

This potentially saves you money as you are only paying for one parcel to be delivered to you rather than many.

Repackaging
Repackaging is similar but needn't involve many packages, it is simply repackaging your shopping into smaller parcels to save you money on your shipping.

I hope this helps?

It's just numbers, if you buy something worth $10 but the shipping to you costs $25 it may not be really worth it (unless the item is an absolute necessity and you can't find it anywhere else), when you buy more items each worth $10 the forwarder may consolidate these making it worthwhile for you, that's an example with numbers on how this may save you money.

I wish more shops would post internationally, I buy quite a few items from Europe for instance (via a local forwarding service parcel forwarding ) and I have to rely on parcel forwarding. Sometimes it's worth it but sometimes it's just an added cost especially when the item is of low value.
I think there are too many online stores which don’t ship internationally still and I'm not sure I understand why.

I appreciate your help. Thanks.


The following are the steps, for example you need buy something from Amazon,you need to find a forwarder company to help you ship the products.

step 1. Buy products on Amazon, fill the address of the forwarder warehouse;
step 2. Login forwarder website fill in the Amazon shipping number;
step 3. Pay for the shipping fee as well as customs fee if needed.
step 4. Receipt products.

Hi, I am glad you like it!

They are very easy to use but some do provide different services, so make sure you check what it is they offer and what you will actually need from a forwarder.

Good work, I like kit.

Thanks for the list of forwarders, I have tried a couple and will try a few more when I have some shopping to do. I really like the extra choice that I can have by shopping from overseas! Cross border shopping is what it is called and I love it!

Hi Frank,

Thanks I believe that USGoBuy do ship to Australia, as do many other package forwarding companies that offer USA shopping addresses.

Many shops do also ship directly to Australia and other countries without the need for a reshipping service too. So you can find some in our list.

But if you find some online stores that wont deliver worldwide then a reship is a good option for you. Here is our list of package forwarders who ship to Australia .

Whatever you decide to do and whichever way you choose to sop, we wish you the best of luck!

Hi

Good question before using package forwarding.

You can check USGoBuy official site to find how it works as USGoBuy is one of the package forwarding company in USA, and surely it reships to Australia?

Good luck

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your question. Package forwarding, like mail forwarding, is very straight forward. It is used when you wish to buy something from a shop in another country if they don't offer international shipping, or you want to buy many things from many shops and have them all consolidated into one package to be sent to you overseas.

Here are the steps:
  • Find the product you wish to buy from a store overseas such as from the USA or UK.
  • Set up an account with your favourite package forwarder who has an address in the country you are buying from.
  • Give the package forwarder your address so they know where to reship the packages on to you.
  • Buy your shopping and use the address the forwarder gave you as the delivery address.
  • The shop will deliver your shopping to the shipping company.
  • Login to your forwarders account and manage the packages they have for you.
  • Pay the forwarder the shipping fees and any other fees for services you have used, such as package consolidation.
  • The forwarder will arrange shipping of your packages or mail.
  • Collect your forwarded packages from the address you chose.
  • Enjoy your shopping!

I hope you find this useful and helpful as a guide as to how to use a package forwarding provider.
