According to their website, they don’t ship to South Africa, so that’s it, right?
Wrong! If you’ve always been prevented from buying Gearbest’ latest items, you’ll be excited to know that you need suffer no more.
There is a way to get online Gearbest products from the USA delivered to your door.
How to Deliver Items from the Gearbest Online Store to South Africa
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 Gearbest 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!
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
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 Gearbest 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 freight forwarder accepts the package on your behalf.
Once the package is received, the freight forwarder will ship the package directly to you in South Africa.
If you have several packages, MyUS can bundle the packages into one order. That way you’ll receive all of your items together instead of one at a time.
The benefit of this service is you can order from anywhere in the United States and get your items shipped to South Africa.
