Everything is so quick these days isn’t it?
We can speak to family across oceans, buy a bed with a click of a button, and get our entire groceries for the week delivered in a couple of hours. But while our daily purchases are transforming our purchasing accessibility in 2022, the process of shipping across international borders is still stuck 1980.
Why does it take 8 weeks to send packages to Canada? Why do my cousins in Toronto get their holiday gifts I sent 2 weeks late? Why is it always so expensive?
PostFromUS aims to solve all your shipping problems one by one, so you don’t have to!

Between businesses wishing to branch into the Canadian merchant market, the hundreds of thousands of people connecting with their loved ones through gift-giving and package sending every year, and expats seeking access to their favorite American products from home, there are many reasons people are forwarding packages across the Great American border.
But even in our well-connected current world, ordering US products from Canada is a lengthy, limited, and often expensive process.
While some e-commerce retailers like Amazon have recently started two-day shipping to Canada on some selected items, many US retail giants such as Kohl’s, Target, JCPenney, US Walmart, Macy’s, and Barnes and Noble still do not provide any shipping option to our Canadian cousins and US expats living in Canada.
PostFromUS makes shopping hassle-free, allowing you to order your much loved US products from multiple stores, consolidate your purchases, and ship them to Canada, saving you up to 80% on shipping costs during the process, while being updated during every stage of our efficient and easy shipping process.
People that have shipped US goods to Canada before are all too familiar with preparing to post a package only to be hit with killer costs.
