Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Alibaba won’t ship any items to Rwanda, or anywhere else outside of the U.S. for that matter.
But there’s a fairly straightforward workaround to get any item sold on the Alibaba online store delivered to Rwanda. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Alibaba Online Store to Rwanda
To receive international shipments from Alibaba, you’ll need to have a physical U.S. address.
This address is where you’ll get the packages shipped to.
I’m sure the question you have now is, “how can I get a physical U.S. address if I don’t live there?”
Fear not, as we have an answer to that!
United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.
When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.
With so many Freight Forwarders out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best that we have found is called MyUS.
They are trustworthy, won’t break the bank and they do not charge any additional taxes, so you won’t be caught out by extra fees. This isn’t always the case with every Freight Forwarder.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Alibaba or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in Rwanda.
With MyUS, your Alibaba order could be with you in no time!
