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 Massdrop and have the package shipped to South Africa. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Massdrop Online Store to South Africa
To ship items from Massdrop 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 Massdrop.
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?
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
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 Massdrop store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in South Africa.
With MyUS, your Massdrop order could be with you in no time!
