International Shipping Deadlines: There's Still Time to Ship with DHL, UPS, and More

Are you excited to buy your favorite products in the USA using Shipito’s package forwarding service and receive them before the end of the year? In this post, I am going to show you how to get the best deals on the products you want and save on international shipping costs. First, make sure to Sign up and get your free US address. Shipito will make everything easier in your life, especially if you want to shop on US online stores (Amazon, eBay, and more) during Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The best part is you can save between 20% and 80% on your shopping and of course, save up to 80% when you combine all your packages into one. The best part is that you can receive your package before the end of the year if you follow my advice. Keep reading to find out how!

Every year, I shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to find deals and send gifts to my family who live in South America. As my family is big, I look for the best dates to complete my online shopping in the USA to save a lot of money. DHL and UPS are great options for fast international shipping and increase the chance that my family will receive their packages from the USA within 2 to 8 business days. That means if I send a package on December 13th, my family will most likely receive the international package before December 23rd. These dates vary by country so make sure to check our Shipping Calculator to find out shipping speeds for specific countries.

When you ship your package internationally with Shipito, you will be able to choose the carrier and service that best fits your budget and your needs. However, in case you want to choose the cheapest shipping option with Airmail Economy, you need to know that it can take between 45 to 120 business days for delivery to be completed and does not have a secure tracking number to track your package, which I do not recommend using this service if you plan to receive the package before the end of the year.

What Are Prohibited and Limited Items?

It is important to check our prohibited and limited page in case you do not know if we can ship the item you want to buy or not because shipping restrictions vary by country. Please note that shipping restrictions constantly change so it is important to check the page regularly. Ultimately, you are responsible for ensuring that the items you purchase comply with all government and carrier restrictions. Remember, prohibited items cannot ship at all.

Limited items have reduced shipping options on the number of specific types of items and may require special documentation or have extra fees associated with them. If you have concerns about your product, please contact support@shipito.com before you make your purchase.

Should I Get Shipping Insurance? Better Safe than Sorry.

As the end of the year is a very busy time for everyone, we recommend that you buy insurance for damage and delivery, in case something unforeseen happens with your package, you are insured. When submitting your mailout request, you will see an option to select delivery insurance, delivery and damage insurance, or no insurance. Please note that, even if the insurance fee is included in the shipping fee, you must still select the type of insurance you want for your items. When insurance is selected, your package is covered by Shipito. You are not required to issue a claim with the carrier yourself, we will work with the carriers on your behalf to process any claims.

What is the easiest way to purchase online?

Shipito has a partnership with US Unlocked, a company that provides you with a digital credit card in the USA. All you need to do is add money to your account and start shopping at the US stores you love.
