We’ve all been there – found a product online we simply must have, but the site only ships to America. What once was a frustration is a dilemma no more thanks to ShopMate by Australia Post – a parcel forwarding service that gives you a US address to get those purchases home.


Now you can shop like you live in the USA – which coming from someone who has just returned from America – is a very good thing! ShopMate allows you to access brands you couldn’t buy before on home shores and also grants you access to better pricing on big ticket items – I used ShopMate to get a pusher home from America, and even with shipping it was half the price of what I would have paid locally.


So how do you get started with ShopMate by Australia Post? It takes just four simple steps.

Shop Online

Now is not the time to deny yourself that pair of trainers exclusively available in the US. Now you can buy items from US sites that only ship to US addresses – because you now have your own American address! At the checkout, simply enter your ShopMate address for delivery.

Declare and Pay

You’ll be notified via email once your shopping has arrived at the ShopMate warehouse. Simply log in to ShopMate, declare your package, pay the shipping costs to Australia and your goods will be on their way. Shopped up a storm? No worries. If you’re sending more than one package from the US to Australia in the same day you will receive a “bundling” discout.


Once you’ve paid your shipping costs, you won’t have to wait long for your parcel to arrive. Australia Post aim to get your shopping to you within 5 – 8 business days. Once your shopping leaves the US, you’ll be able to stalk its progress (some call it track) with ShopMate’s tracking tool.


Won’t be home on the expected delivery day? Use a Parcel Locker and simply collect at your convenience!
