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 One and have the package shipped to Cook Islands. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the One Online Store to Cook Islands
To ship items from One 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 One.
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 used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the One store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

The freight forwarder accepts the package on your behalf.
Once the package is received, the freight forwarder will ship the package directly to you in Cook Islands.
If you have several packages, MyUS can bundle the packages into one order. That way you’ll receive all of your items together instead of one at a time.
The benefit of this service is you can order from anywhere in the United States and get your items shipped to Cook Islands.
