Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Alibaba won’t ship any items to Singapore, 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 Singapore. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Alibaba Online Store to Singapore
To ship items from Alibaba internationally, you’ll need a physical address located in the United States.
The United States address is where you’ll receive the items that you order from Alibaba.
But wait one minute! How is it possible to have an address in the United States when you don’t live there, and neither do your relatives?
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.
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.
We’ve been a long time customer of MyUS, and we’ve never had any issues with their service.
So, when you want to order restricted items from the Alibaba store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Singapore, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
