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 Outlet and have the package shipped to Australia. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Book Outlet Online Store to Australia
To ship items from Book Outlet 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 Outlet.
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.
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.
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 Outlet 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.

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 Australia.
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 Australia.
