Target retail & online store is very popular in the US. Unfortunately, it is not available outside of the USA and Canada due to a lack of international shipping. But not anymore!
We are going to show you, how to order from Target USA and get international shipping to almost any country.

Step #1: Sign Up with Planet Express
There are 3 ways how you can shop from the Target online store if you live outside of the US:
1. Find someone who orders the Target products for you which is very time consuming and risky.
2. Fly to the US and buy products at Target in person. The downside is obvious – it will probably be very expensive.
3. (Recommended) Use a ‘Shop For Me‘ service so we take care of the purchase for you (the whole process is described in 2nd step).
Before you can take advantage of the Planet Express Shop For Me service, you have to sign up. Here is how to do that:
Besides Shop For Me service, you can also take advantage of the free Californian address, package consolidation, sales-tax-free warehouse, and much more.
Step #2: Let Us Shop For You At Target.com
Once you activate your Planet Express address, you will be able to place the Shop For Me request. There are 2 main benefits of this service:
✅ 1. You can pay us for the order with a foreign credit card (read more), or whatever payment method that suits you best.
✅ 2. Some US online stores like Target don’t ship to addresses provided by package forwarding companies (source). Shop For Me service solves this limitation.
Place the Shop For Me Order
To place a new Shop For Me order, please, log into your account, go to the Shop For Me tab and add NEW PURCHASE.
Now, make sure you fill in all the necessary details about the product you want to order (if you want to order more products, you can just repeat the process of adding a new item).
Note: Target website may not be available in your country. You can solve this issue by using a VPN service. You simply connect to a US-based server and enjoy shopping from Target.com.
We ordered the Decorative Wood Wall Clock as an example:
Confirm adding a new product by clicking the ADD NEW ITEM button. It will appear in the Shopping list. Once you add the items, complete the additional details about the online store (in our case target.com).
Last, but not least, make sure you include the price of the shipping from the online store to our warehouse address and the sales tax* (sales tax is usually calculated based on the delivery address when adding the product to your shopping cart). Finish the order with the FINISH ORDER button.
The status of your order is created now. You can see the amount of the deposit that you have to add (so we can order the goods) in the price field.
If you want to see more detailed info about your Shop For Me order, click the EDIT button. We charge a $5 flat fee (for processing the order) and 7% of the total value of your order (to cover eventual banking fees).
Once you add enough deposit, your Shop For Me order will be processed by one of our personal shoppers. When we receive your package, you will get a notification email. We process Shop For Me orders within 48 hrs. Then we have to wait for the delivery from Target.com that usually takes 2 business days (source).
