So, you’ve decided to use a package forwarding service to get all of your favorite US products sent straight to your door. “But, how the heck does that work?” You ask… Don’t worry, the process of package forwarding can seem daunting at first. That’s why we’re here to walk you through the journey your parcels will take, using your very own Virtual Forwarding address.
A virtual forwarding address, also known as a reship address, is an address that your reshipping service will use, to keep your packages until they are redirected to you. Almost like the middle-man in your international shopping experience!
When signing up to a reshipping service, You’ll be assigned a virtual forwarding address. Paired with your unique suite number, this will be unique to you. This means that when your orders arrive to the reshipping address, they can be registered to you. Your parcels will be kept safe at the forwarding address, until they are redirected to wherever you are in the world.
Your virtual forwarding address is not a PO box. Many websites do not deliver to PO boxes, meaning it’s unlikely you could use one for package forwarding purposes. Reshipping services like PostfromUS generally have their own warehouses with the same location as your virtual forwarding address. The benefit of your parcels being delivered to your reshipping service provider is that you can be assured that your items are completely safe.
You (the shopper) sign up to a reshipping service and receive your virtual forwarding address and unique member ID…
Ka-ching! You place an online order, using your virtual forwarding address as the delivery point.
The reshipping company receives your items at the virtual forwarding address- their facilities.
It’s really as simple as that. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t still enjoy all of your favorite US products now that you live abroad. Package forwarding provides you with the ability to do just that and more… So sign up, and start forwarding today! Happy Shopping.
