Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Ikea Singapore won’t ship any items to Philippines, 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 Ikea Singapore online store delivered to Philippines. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Ikea Singapore Online Store to Philippines
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.
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’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 Ikea Singapore store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

Thanks to these services, you’re able to purchase from online stores as if you were a U.S. citizen and get them shipped all the way to Philippines with no hassle!
