US Shipping Address Services
Any experiences with their services? Is this a "safe" thing? If so, my god, what bliss!

US Shipping Address Services
I wanted to order a pair of Keds from Keds.com but as they do not ship internationally I wanted to try www.myus.com.
Does anyone have experiences with them or any other service that helps you to buy from the USA?

i have a myus.com account, used it a couple of times and they're great! the items are shipped so quickly. they also allow you to declare the wholesale value of goods so it helps a lot in reducing fees at customs. you can also track your parcels online.

US Shipping Address Services
Hi there!

Have any of you experience with US shipping address services like www.myus.com or www.usamail1.com ?

They offer people outside the us to get an US address, from where stuff bought online in the US can be forwarded to the European, Asian, African (or whatever) home address. Then you can buy on homepages in the US which don't offer international shipping and you can also save on shipping costs.

Both companies say that you are responsible for duties yourself, but if I for example buy a pair of shoes from Neiman Marcus, have it sent to my us address and forwarded to my European home address from there - will the value then be marked on the package to Europe?

Hope some of the wise shopaholics can help me!!!

hi zarina. i have a myus account, which gives me an address in florida. they give you an option of what value to declare on the customs form -- either wholesale or retail. if you choose wholesale, they usually declare around 30% of the retail price of the item. i had this option going for a while and it saved me heaps of customs fees but recently, they used a courier company to send me some items and they have since told me that this option is no longer available for australian customers. i recommend checking with them first to see if you can get stuff sent to you at wholesale value.

also, you have to keep in mind that you would have to pay usa sales tax for some retailers sending items to florida. for example, neiman marcus has stores in florida so you would have to pay the tax. that's why i still purchase via online chat with neimans because there's no tax.

the service itself is very efficient and i have not had a problem with them. the annual fee can be pretty high but i have saved heaps on the shopping so it all balances out.

Shipping for US only orders - for Europeans
Hi, I want to order a pair of shoes and the store doesn't ship outside of the US. I know one of our members, a blogger, has an offer standing to anyone who wants something from the UK that isn't shipped outside of there, that she can purchase it and send it to you when it arrives.

So I am wondering if there is someone in the US doing the same, I've also heard about sites where you pay and get an american adress that you can have your stuff shipped to. Does anyone have the adress to one of these sites? Any help or tips to get my shoes to Sweden is highly appreciated.

There are a lot of reviews available at the Vogue Australia forums in the "Shopping" section http://forums.vogue.com.au/forumdisplay.php?f=24 . Just search for something like "myus"

e.g. this thread links to the more recent reviews http://forums.vogue.com.au/showthrea...highlight=myus

I wish we could do a thread where US-based members could help the rest of us :p I too would like to buy one of the Rodarte x Target pieces somehow, without succumbing to eBay-prices.
