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 Gymshark and have the package shipped to South Africa. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Gymshark Online Store to South Africa
To ship internationally, Gymshark 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!
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
Sounds great, right? So which Freight Forwarder is the best one to go with?
In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with MyUS
They offer an excellent service at a very reasonable price, and unlike other companies, they don’t charge any extra taxes!
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in South Africa or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Gymshark Online Store
Once MyUS receives your package from Gymshark, they’ll ship it straight to South Africa.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to South Africa.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
