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.

1. First, you will establish an American address with us. To this address, the products will be shipped from the Etsy manufacturer.
2. Once we receive the goods that you have ordered, we will send you an email.
3. The package will appear in your account in our administration. You fill the customs declaration and choose the shipping method. We take care of the rest. Within a few days or weeks (according to the delivery method) you will have a package at home in your country.

The process sounds complicated at first glance, but we have described it in more detail below so everyone can do it.

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.

Most of the packages shipped across the US arrive within 2 weeks, but everything depends on the shipping method. Free delivery takes more time than using paid or express methods.

The fact that we have accepted the package in our warehouse you will find out by receiving a notification email from us. If you think nothing is happening for a long time, it can mean the following:

1. The email has been delivered but it was marked as spam and you didn't notice it. Go through your spam or promotion folders.
2. The package has been not delivered
a) It is still on its way
b) The seller cheated you. Let us know that immediately.
3. The package has been delivered to our warehouse, but due to the absence of an identification number, we do not know which account to assign it to. In that case, please contact us at [email protected] and send the proof (invoice) that you have paid the goods in the attachment. We will then link the package to your account.

Please, log in so you can fill in the customs declaration.

What is the Customs Declaration and Why you Must Fill it in?

The Customs Declaration is a document that is used to verify the contents of a package during the customs control. IT helps to have control over the movement of goods into the country. It is, therefore, necessary to fill it in. Without a completed customs declaration, the package cannot be sent. Remember, if the package value exceeds the de minimis value for your country, you will have to pay customs duties from it. Unfortunately, there is no 100% proven way how to avoid customs duties.

Tip: Calculate the customs duties with the Simply Duty tool.

The second reason why you should fill in the customs declaration is insurance. If something bad happens during transport and the content will be damaged, you will be refunded from the value in the declaration. For example, if you fill in $10 in your customs declaration, you will be refunded $10 (+ cost of the shipping), regardless of the item's value.

How to Fill in the Customs Declaration?

Now you know what is customs declaration. Let's fill it in.

The fields are explained below:

Product description – what is inside of the package? Please, fill it in English.
Quantity – how much is it?
Value – what is the value of one piece in American dollars (USD)?
Origin – where it comes from? (usually the USA)
Batteries – does the package contain batteries?

Select the delivery method from the US to your country now. We offer several of them. If you bought, for example, expansive jewelry at etsy.com, we recommend using DHL or FedEx as a carrier. These carriers offer detailed package tracking updates. If the package value is low feel free to use methods such as Planet Mail Economy/Express or USPS Economy/Priority, eventually Aramex.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to send the package

Package insurance is not necessary, but it is recommended. Logistics is very complex and sometimes happens that the package is damaged or even lost during transport. These circumstances we cannot influence but thanks to package insurance you will be refunded the value that you filled in customs declaration + the postage price.

Select the delivery method and other additional methods such as package insurance, adding fragile stickers etc.
