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 Fanjoy and have the package shipped to South Africa. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Fanjoy Online Store to South Africa
To ship items from Fanjoy 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 Fanjoy.
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?
United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.
When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.
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 Fanjoy 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 process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in South Africa.
With MyUS, your Fanjoy order could be with you in no time!
