Thank you for your helpful response shoegal87

I saw that there are certain shipping rates, which look very reasonable. What I meant was the international handling fee that courier companies charge - maybe its just a UK thing? But everytime I've received a package via courier I get charged a handling fee too.

Have you ever purchased anything where there were no tags/price mentioned in the package? Do they then ask how much you paid/what it is worth?

Unfortunately you have to pay handling fees and duties once you get the package
I did purchase things over ebay from sellers who didnt ship outside the us so i had things delivered to myus without price tag and they simply estimated the cost by themselves and most of the times it was very close to the actual price (more or less)

Bringing up a really old post but I was just wondering if you ordered something from Target using myus and if it worked? Thinking about setting up an account with them to order stuff from the TargetxMissoni collection.

I am interested in something like this too! I live in the US and want to buy something from Sweden but it seems the online site only ships to countries near Sweden

Please help anyone.

Oh sorry! It's been a week since this post. I decided to sign up to a few of them but then I thought it wasn't really worth the hassle because in my case, my orders would be more expensive anyway.

^Thanks anyway I guess I'll just give it a try and see how it goes with MyUs. At the moment I'm even more worried about even finding everything I want on target.com once it's out because that site seems beyond confusing.

What would you possibly want in sweden that you can't find in US? kidding, of course.

I would offer to send you whatever you need but I'm not in Sweden a lot aside from summers and I'm not in the Stockholm area which is probably where your desired item is at. There are a lot of nordic members on this site though

Does anyone know someone that does shopping services for Sweden? Or Germany or Netherlands?

To answer the other question, I've used both UKBrandsWorldwide and BrionyBuysUK to get items from the UK. They both were okay.
