It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, The Real Real doesn’t ship directly to India.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the The Real Real store shipped to India, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the The Real Real Online Store to India
To ship items from The Real Real 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 The Real Real.
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 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 India or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

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 India.
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 India.
