Shipping from the USA to Australia is super easy. In this tutorial, we will show you how to send packages from the USA to Australia with the best shipping rates using the package forwarding by Planet Express. You can use this method to ship packages from your friends or forward packages from any US shop.
How it works
1. Get US Address to Receive Packages from US Stores
Click on New Account and fill all the required information. Once you finish the registration, you get your own US address in the following format:
17224 S. Figueroa Street, Suite ID #A1234
Gardena, California (CA) 90248
2. Use this address as a regular address to receive packages
When you have the Planet Express address, feel free to use it for receiving the orders from the US online stores, or give it to your friends to send you a package. Once we receive packages addressed to you, we link them with your account and send you the notification email. Then you can take advantage of one of our additional services.
3. Forward your package to Australia with the best shipping rates
Before we can send the package to you, you have to complete the customs declaration. It is an online form where you describe the contents of the package. It is closely tied up with customs and it allows customs officers when checking the imported package. You fill the customs declaration on your own.
Once you finish the declaration, you can choose the delivery method that suits your needs. We offer quick delivery methods and even cheap, slower ones.
Duty & TAX
PLANET EXPRESS DOES NOT COLLECT GST!
A standard TAX rate (GST) is 10% in Australia. The packages sent from the USA to Australia with Planet Express are sent as Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU). This means that you have to pay 10% of the value of the package if this value is above the de minimis threshold. This value includes the value of the product, postage costs, and insurance.
As in other countries in Australia, there is an obligation to pay Duty & TAX. But if your package value is below the so-called de minimis threshold (1000 AUD*), you don’t have to pay import duties. If the exporting business meets certain criteria, goods, and services tax (GST) is payable on imported goods regardless of value. For more information, consult an Australian taxation lawyer or check the Australian Taxation Office website.
