Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Alibaba won’t ship any items to Zimbabwe, 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 Zimbabwe. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Alibaba Online Store to Zimbabwe
To receive packages from the United States, you’re going to need to have an address based there.
Now, we’re assuming that you neither own a house there or do you have relatives living there, so how is this even possible?
Don’t worry, you’re not going to need to splash out on a property, there is a much cheaper solution.
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
MyUS is one of the best freight forwarders available – and it’s our favorite.
Why do we think MyUS is the best? It’s because they’re reliable, don’t charge a bunch of taxes, and offer affordable rates.
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in Zimbabwe or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

The freight forwarder accepts the package on your behalf.
Once the package is received, the freight forwarder will ship the package directly to you in Zimbabwe.
If you have several packages, MyUS can bundle the packages into one order. That way you’ll receive all of your items together instead of one at a time.
The benefit of this service is you can order from anywhere in the United States and get your items shipped to Zimbabwe.
