Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ebay won’t ship any items to Costa Rica, 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 Ebay online store delivered to Costa Rica. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ebay Online Store to Costa Rica
To ship internationally, Ebay 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!
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 Ebay, or any United States company.
With so many Freight Forwarders out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best that we have found is called MyUS.
They are trustworthy, won’t break the bank and they do not charge any additional taxes, so you won’t be caught out by extra fees. This isn’t always the case with every Freight Forwarder.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Ebay 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.

Once MyUS receives your package from Ebay, they’ll ship it straight to Costa Rica.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Costa Rica.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
