Etsy is one of the best-known online marketplaces where you can find original products from handymen and small manufacturers. Most products are handmade and each piece is original. Unfortunately, the possibility of sending a package from a US manufacturer to the rest of the world may not always be available or the shipping costs are overpriced.
That’s why we would like to show you how to get the goods directly from the US to your country for one of the best prices on the market. It takes just a few steps.
• 1st STEP: Get a free US address on our website
• 2nd STEP: Order goods from Etsy
• 3rd STEP: Fill in the customs declaration and select the delivery method to your home

1st STEP: Get the US Address For FREE
To receive orders from Etsy, you need to have a US address because some Etsy sellers may not offer international shipping, and if so, it can be too expensive.
It is really easy to get the US address. And what is more, the address is for FREE! Watch the following video or read our tutorial.
Our Californian address is completely free of charge. Feel free to find out how much does it cost to send a package from the US to your country using our calculator or check our Etsy FAQs section.
2nd STEP: Order From Etsy.com
Before we order the goods, we need to make several edits on Etsy. First, we set up the location of the Etsy website as the ‘United States’. We leave language and currency at your choice, but for universality, we chose the US dollar (USD) as the currency and English as the language. You can edit this setting at the bottom of the page, just click on the flag.
When you select the goods, add it to your cart.
You will be redirected to your shopping cart where you will see the price of the goods and shipping.
 Choose the payment method in this step already.
 You probably will have a prefilled country of delivery depending on where are you from. Therefore, click the address in brackets and enter the United States and ZIP code 90248. Save the address settings.
 Continue by clicking PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.
 Select the United States and ZIP code of our warehouse.
 Now you can continue as a guest or you can sign in to your Etsy account.
Fill in the delivery address. Here you fill the address from us:
The system will offer an edited delivery address (it adds 3023 to ZIP code). Feel free to use the suggested address.
We selected the payment method a few moments ago, now just fill in the payment details and finish the order.
Tip: How to track packages more efficiently?
Most of the packages from Etsy shipped across the US arrive within 2 weeks to our warehouse but everything depends on the shipping method. Free delivery takes more time than using paid or express methods. If it seems that nothing happened for a long time, it can mean the following:
1. You received the email (the package has been delivered) but it has been marked as spam. Go through your spam and promo folders in your inbox.
2. The package has not been delivered yet.
a) It is still on its way – wait a few more days.
b) The seller cheated you (this is possible if you order from 3rd party sellers).
3. The package has been delivered to our warehouse but there is no SUITE ID. We marked the package as UNKNOWN PACKAGES. Feel free to contct us and send us proof (screen of the order, invoice…) that the package is yours. Then we will link it to your account.
3rd STEP: Forward your Package to Your Country
When your package from Etsy will be delivered, you will get a notification email from us. The email provides you with the most important info about your package (weight, dimensions, tracking number, etc.).
Before we can forward your package to your home address, it is necessary to fill in the customs declaration. Sign in to your Planet Express account and fill it in according to the instructions on How to fill the customs declaration.
Select the Delivery Method from the US to Your Country
Have you completed the customs declaration? Good, now you can select the delivery method from the US to your country. We recommend using Planet Mail Express or USPS Priority/Express for your packages from Etsy.

Tip: Calculate the price of the shipping in advance (even before you receive it in the US) with our postage calculator.
