This can be at times a frustrating issue. Thankfully, there is an extremely easy and convenient way to solve this problematic issue.
In fact, you can ship any product from Ifixit directly to South Africa at a low, inexpensive rate.
How to Deliver Items from the Ifixit Online Store to South Africa
To ship items from Ifixit 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 Ifixit.
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?
This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.
They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Ifixit 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.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Ifixit 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 South Africa.
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 Ifixit US online store, without having to actually live there.
