Have you currently got your eye on the latest Amazon Prime item from their USA online store?

You may be feeling slightly deflated as you wonder how on earth you are going to get them shipped to you.

Luckily for you, there’s a solution to your problem.

There’s a simple method, not known to many, which we’re going to share with you so that you can get the same access to Amazon Prime products as American citizens.

How to Deliver Items from the Amazon Prime Online Store to South Africa

To ship items from Amazon Prime 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 Amazon Prime.

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?


This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.

They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.

How MyUS works with purchases from U.S. retailers

The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.

We feel confident to recommend MyUS because we have shipped lots of packages with them internationally and have only had brilliant experiences.

What’s not to like? You can shop for Amazon Prime and your other favourite brands on US-based websites and get your orders shipped to your door.

Buy Your Product(S) From the Amazon Prime Online Store

When you’re shopping online and choose to deliver to your allocated Freight Forwarder address, the delivery will be received by their team.

At this point, the Freight Forwarder will ship your package to your address in South Africa.

If you have ordered multiple items from multiple US online stores, MyUS will package all of your orders together and send as one.

So, there you have it. You can enjoy the luxury of shopping on the Amazon Prime US online store, without having to actually live there.
