Does the Adorama online store ship items overseas to South Africa?
It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, Adorama doesn’t ship directly to South Africa.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the Adorama store shipped to South Africa, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the Adorama Online Store to South Africa
First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.
How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?
Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Adorama store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

Once MyUS receives your package from Adorama, they’ll ship it straight to South Africa.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to South Africa.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
