Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Dhgate won’t ship any items to South Africa, or anywhere else outside of the U.S. for that matter.
But there’s a fairly straightforward workaround to get any item sold on the Dhgate online store delivered to South Africa. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Dhgate Online Store to South Africa
To ship internationally, Dhgate requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.
They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.
MyUS is one of the best freight forwarders available – and it’s our favorite.
Why do we think MyUS is the best? It’s because they’re reliable, don’t charge a bunch of taxes, and offer affordable rates.
We feel confident to recommend MyUS because we have shipped lots of packages with them internationally and have only had brilliant experiences.
What’s not to like? You can shop for Dhgate and your other favourite brands on US-based websites and get your orders shipped to your door.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Dhgate 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 South Africa.
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 Dhgate US online store, without having to actually live there.
