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 Ohpolly and have the package shipped to South Africa. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Ohpolly Online Store to South Africa
To ship internationally, Ohpolly 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!
Your saviors are called Freight Forwarders. These are companies based in the USA which basically give you an address, just so that you can send your purchases there.
All you have to do is open up an account with a Freight Forwarder and you’ll never have to worry about shopping on US based online stores again.
In our experience, the best Freight Forwarder is MyUS.
Why are they the best? Well, they charge no extra taxes, their rates are cheap, and they provide a very reliable service.
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in South Africa or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

MyUS will keep an eye out for your delivery, and once it turns up, they’ll send it to South Africa.
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 South Africa with no hassle!
