Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Hot Topic 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 Hot Topic online store delivered to Australia. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Hot Topic Online Store to Australia
To receive packages from the United States, you’re going to need to have an address based there.
Now, we’re assuming that you neither own a house there or do you have relatives living there, so how is this even possible?
Don’t worry, you’re not going to need to splash out on a property, there is a much cheaper solution.
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.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
We’ve been a long time customer of MyUS, and we’ve never had any issues with their service.
So, when you want to order restricted items from the Hot Topic store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

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 Australia.
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 Australia.
