Amazon USA ships to Australia directly but the shipping is expensive and for some products not even available. Did you know you can use a package forwarding company like Planet Express to ship products from Amazon to your home address in Australia?
And what is more, you don’t have to limit yourself to Amazon only. With our address, you can shop from several US stores and then consolidate packages into one. More about this later in this blog post.

How To Shop From Amazon USA And Ship To Australia?
As we mentioned in the beginning, Amazon does not ship to Australia every product listed on their website. So, if you want to buy products that are not eligible for international shipping from Amazon USA, you have to use a package forwarding service like Planet Express.
We can receive products from Amazon USA in one of our 2 US warehouses, and then ship them to Australia! Here is how it works more in detail.
Step #1: Get Your US Address
Get your own free US address with Planet Express after signing up. This is an address of our warehouse in California (we also have a sales-tax-free address in Oregon for our premium members). This is how your address will look like:
John Doe 17224 S. Figueroa Street #A1234 Gardena, CA 90248, USA
Step #2: Order From Amazon To Your Planet Express Address
Order products from Amazon USA on their website and use your Planet Express address when placing the order (you can add several delivery addresses to your Amazon account). We are able to recognize that the package belongs to you based on the suite ID number (every customer has its own). Once we receive your package (it usually takes Amazon 2-7 business days to deliver the packages to our warehouse), you will receive a notification email from us.
Step #3: Ship From Amazon USA To Australia
The final step is to complete the customs declaration form online (don’t worry, it is really easy). See how to complete the customs declaration in our video.
After finishing the customs declaration, you can finally choose a shipping method from the USA to (almost) any address you want. Depending on the size & weight of the package, you will be able to choose from several shipping methods. Our customers from Australia especially love FedEx Economy and Planet Mail Express thanks to low prices. Read more about the shipping costs in the following section.
