Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Groupon 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 Groupon online store delivered to Australia. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Groupon Online Store to Australia
To ship items from Groupon 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 Groupon.
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?
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 Groupon, 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 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 Groupon and your other favourite brands on US-based websites and get your orders shipped to your door.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Australia, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
