boxes delivered to the doorHave you ever wanted to order something from the Overstock store and have it delivered to South Africa? Have you ever wondered whether that’s possible?

Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.

Overstock won’t ship any items to South Africa, 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 Overstock online store delivered to South Africa. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.

How to Deliver Items from the Overstock Online Store to South Africa

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!


United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.

When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.

How MyUS works with purchases from U.S. retailers

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 Overstock or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

Buy Your Product(S) From the Overstock Online Store

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 South Africa.

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 South Africa.
