Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Mercari won’t ship any items to Canada, 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 Mercari online store delivered to Canada. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Mercari Online Store to Canada
First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.
How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?
Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from Mercari, or any United States company.
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 Mercari store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

MyUS will keep an eye out for your delivery, and once it turns up, they’ll send it to Canada.
Thinking about ordering multiple items? MyUS has you covered. They’ll wait for everything to arrive, combine them into one large shipment, and send it on its way!
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 Canada with no hassle!
