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 Winc and have the package shipped to Cook Islands. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Winc Online Store to Cook Islands
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!
This isn’t widely known, but there are businesses in the USA which have been set up purely to assist consumers with their international shopping.
They are called Freight Forwarders. When you sign up to use their services, they will allocate you a USA address that you can send your US-based deliveries too.
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.
We’ve been a long time customer of MyUS, and we’ve never had any issues with their service.
So, when you want to order restricted items from the Winc store, you simply enter the address MyUS provided and get your packages shipped there.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Cook Islands, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
