According to their website, they don’t ship to South Africa, so that’s it, right?
Wrong! If you’ve always been prevented from buying Printful’ latest items, you’ll be excited to know that you need suffer no more.
There is a way to get online Printful products from the USA delivered to your door.
How to Deliver Items from the Printful Online Store to South Africa
To ship internationally, Printful 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!
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
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.
Since working with them, we have conveniently and inexpensively shipped many packages internationally.
Whether you buy products from Printful 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 Printful 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.
