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 Media Mail and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Media Mail Online Store to Puerto Rico
To receive international shipments from Media Mail, you’ll need to have a physical U.S. address.
This address is where you’ll get the packages shipped to.
I’m sure the question you have now is, “how can I get a physical U.S. address if I don’t live there?”
Fear not, as we have an answer to that!
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.
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.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Media Mail or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

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 Puerto Rico with no hassle!
