With the rise of e-commerce, online shopping has become a global phenomenon. However, the challenge for many international shoppers is how to get their packages from the US to their doorstep. Forwardme is a top package forwarding service that makes it easy to ship packages internationally. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to correctly, efficiently, quickly, and safely ship packages from the US to anywhere in the world using Forwardme.

Simple steps for international shipping from the US?

The first step for international shipping is to create an account with Forwardme. Once you have an account, you can start shopping at US online stores. When you check out, you will use your Forwardme US address as the delivery address. When your packages arrive at Forwardme's warehouse, our team will process and consolidate them into one shipment. You can then place a shipping order and pay for the shipping fees and any add-ons you choose. After the package ships, it will be delivered to your doorstep.

How can I easily get a free US address?

Getting a free US address with Forwardme is easy. Simply create an account with us, and you will automatically receive a US address to use for your online shopping. This address will allow you to shop from US online stores that do not offer international shipping. On top of one shipping address, Forwardme also offers a tax-free warehouse. You can use that address right after signing up.

Once your package is processed in your account, you can add it to your cart and proceed with the check-out process. During check-out, you will be asked to enter your delivery address, choose any shipping add-ons you want, and make a payment. Forwardme works with Stripe, the biggest payment service provider in the world, ensuring secure and easy payment

How does Forwardme work?

Once your package is delivered to our warehouse, our operations team will process it into your account. You will receive an email notification once your package has been processed. You can then place a shipping order and pay for the shipping fees and any add-ons you choose. Our team will handle the rest, ensuring your package is shipped quickly and safely.

Save a fortune; Consolidation & Repacking

Forwardme offers services like consolidation and repacking that can help you save money on shipping costs. Some stores may ship packages separately or send them in a big box, which can be unnecessary to ship internationally. Forwardme's experienced team can consolidate and repack your packages into a smaller and more efficient shipment, reducing your shipping costs

Customs rules & Customs related fees

When your package arrives at your destination country, you will receive an email from the courier company regarding your shipment and any customs-related fees you need to pay. It is important to pay these fees promptly to avoid any delays or additional costs. If the package is not cleared from customs, it may be returned to the original sender or disposed of in customs, which can be expensive.

Shipping insurance?

At Forwardme, we strongly recommend purchasing shipping insurance. In many cases, packages can be damaged during transit, and insurance can provide a safety net. If anything goes wrong, Forwardme will handle all the paperwork and ensure you receive proper compensation. Insurance is the most effective way to protect your shipment.

In conclusion, Forwardme offers a simple and efficient solution for international shipping. With a free US address, consolidation and repacking services, easy order placement, and secure payment options, Forwardme makes it easy for international shoppers to get their packages from the US to their doorstep.
