This can be at times a frustrating issue. Thankfully, there is an extremely easy and convenient way to solve this problematic issue.

In fact, you can ship any product from Apple directly to South Africa at a low, inexpensive rate.

How to Deliver Items from the Apple Online Store to South Africa

First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.

How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?

Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!


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.

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’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 South Africa or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

Once MyUS receives your package from Apple, they’ll ship it straight to South Africa.

Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to South Africa.

By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
