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 Pods and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Pods Online Store to Puerto Rico
To ship internationally, Pods 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!
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.
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.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Pods or another U.S.-based company, MyUS lets you conveniently ship them to your new physical U.S.-based address.

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