Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ghirardelli won’t ship any items to Australia, 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 Ghirardelli online store delivered to Australia. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ghirardelli Online Store to Australia
To ship internationally, Ghirardelli 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!
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.
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 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 Ghirardelli and your other favourite brands on US-based websites and get your orders shipped to your door.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Ghirardelli 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 Australia.
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 Ghirardelli US online store, without having to actually live there.
