The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Amazon and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Amazon Online Store to Puerto Rico
To receive international shipments from Amazon, 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.
In our experience, the best Freight Forwarder is MyUS.
Why are they the best? Well, they charge no extra taxes, their rates are cheap, and they provide a very reliable service.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Amazon or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Amazon 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 Puerto Rico.
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 US online store, without having to actually live there.
