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 Ups and have the package shipped to Accra Ghana. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Ups Online Store to Accra Ghana
To ship items from Ups 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 Ups.
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?
Within the United States, there are several companies known as Freight Forwarders, whose intent is to help with international shipping.
These companies will give you an address in the United States to use for receiving packages.
With an account from a Freight Forwarder company and the U.S. based address, you can manage your international shipments.
From the given address, you can send and then ship your order from Ups, or any United States company.
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.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Ups 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.

When you’re shopping online and choose to deliver to your allocated Freight Forwarder address, the delivery will be received by their team.
At this point, the Freight Forwarder will ship your package to your address in Accra Ghana.
If you have ordered multiple items from multiple US online stores, MyUS will package all of your orders together and send as one.
So, there you have it. You can enjoy the luxury of shopping on the Ups US online store, without having to actually live there.
