Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Etsy won’t ship any items to Nigeria, 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 Etsy online store delivered to Nigeria. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Etsy Online Store to Nigeria
Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you just had a USA address that you could ship packages to? Then you could order from the USA Etsy online store until your heart’s content.
The great news is that there is an affordable way which doesn’t involve you buying a house!
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
We’ve been a long time customer of MyUS, and we’ve never had any issues with their service.
So, when you want to order restricted items from the Etsy store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

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