How to Deliver Items from the Build A Bear Online Store to Canada
To receive packages from the United States, you’re going to need to have an address based there.
Now, we’re assuming that you neither own a house there or do you have relatives living there, so how is this even possible?
Don’t worry, you’re not going to need to splash out on a property, there is a much cheaper solution.
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from Build A Bear, or any United States company.
