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 Book Of The Month and have the package shipped to Australia. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Book Of The Month Online Store to Australia
To ship items from Book Of The Month 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 Book Of The Month.
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?
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Book Of The Month store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

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

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 Book Of The Month US online store, without having to actually live there.
