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 Wayfair and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Wayfair Online Store to Puerto Rico
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.
MyUS is one of the best freight forwarders available – and it’s our favorite.
Why do we think MyUS is the best? It’s because they’re reliable, don’t charge a bunch of taxes, and offer affordable rates.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Wayfair 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.

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 Puerto Rico.
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 Puerto Rico.
