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 J&T and have the package shipped to Cook Islands. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the J&T Online Store to Cook Islands
To ship internationally, J&T 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!
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.
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 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 J&T store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.
Buy Your Product(S) From the J&T 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 Cook Islands.
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 J&T US online store, without having to actually live there.
