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 Zenni Optical and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Zenni Optical Online Store to Puerto Rico
To receive international shipments from Zenni Optical, you’ll need to have a physical U.S. address.
This address is where you’ll get the packages shipped to.
I’m sure the question you have now is, “how can I get a physical U.S. address if I don’t live there?”
Fear not, as we have an answer to that!
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.
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 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 Puerto Rico or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.
Buy Your Product(S) From the Zenni Optical Online Store
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 Puerto Rico.
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 Zenni Optical US online store, without having to actually live there.
