Recommend a drop shipping place from the US?

Post by Lorgar » 04 Apr 2019, 12:57 pm

Anyone got recommendations for a drop shipping from the US?

Nothing to do with firearms, don't need permits and such.

Just regular 'non scary' stuff I want from a place that doesn't ship internationally.

Cheers.

No worries about that.

It's actually for a pair of knee inserts for some riding pants.

Nothing that goes *bang*.

Shipitto has been around for a long time. I've only used it once for some amazon security camera purchases and that went fine, they have some neat options for repackaging stuff to save volume and they have a page which details the gear that is/is not shippable based on various regs, They also provided quite comprehensive updates and pics of the gear as it arrived and was combined for shipping.

Sometimes this is an absolute mystery to me.

I tried to buy some Glacier stemless stainless steel wine glasses direct from the company - wont ship to au.
Fine. use Amazon.com - wont ship to au.
Fine amazon.com.au - OK but international order (note in the past have not been available through amazon.au either),almost 5 times the price + postage!

Ive used shiptito plenty of times, good service and i found that some businesses charge free freight inside the 48 states but expensive for overseas. I get it sent to shipito and then they forward to me at better rates.
