Buying From the US and Shipping to Australia – The Complete Guide

Buying from the US and shipping to Australia

The latest fashion, tech products, and gadgets are being released daily in the US. Unfortunately for international consumers, shopping online for these products can be complicated and restrictive. If you have ever been shopping for the latest mobile phone or new pair of sneakers from the US, you are probably well aware of the frustration of getting to checkout and discovering that they do not ship to Australia. Often online stores require a US shipping address or US billing address to purchase your product.

Waiting for the ability to buy these products in your own country can take months and in worse cases, years. Luckily for you, Big Apple Buddy has created a personalized shopping service that makes buying from the US and shipping to Australia easy and convenient. You simply tell us what you want, we buy it, and then ship it from the US to your front door. Shopping at your favorite US stores is no longer a hassle. We have even provided you here with a complete guide to buying from US and shipping to Australia. It couldn’t get any easier!


Why Should I Buy From the US?

The US is home to some of the best brands and products on the market. There are thousands of US stores offering new products, great deals and the latest in tech products and gadgets.

These restrictions can be disappointing for customers wanting to have the latest in tech products or get their hands on a particular product.

How Much Does Shipping Cost?

 Buying from the US and shipping to Australia

Shipping fees are calculated by the weight and dimensions of your parcel, combined with your location. A larger, heavier item, such as a laptop, will cost more to ship than an item with smaller dimensions such as a mobile phone. Our shipping partners (FedEx, DHL and UPS) tell us how much these items cost to ship based on this information.

We can calculate the shipping cost for you if you simply provide us with the item you wish to buy along with its specs and your country and zip code. These costs will be fully set out in our Free Quote. Our shipping concierge will get back to you within 24 hours with a quote.


How Long Will It Take for my Parcel to Arrive From the US?

On average, you can usually expect 2-7 business days for us to receive the product from the store and 2-4 business days of transit time between our facility and your doorstep.

There are different shipping options available from USPS, FedEx, DHL and UPS. If you need your product immediately, you may choose a faster shipping option.

Big Apple Buddy is a fast and reliable service that works with the most reputable shipping companies. All parcels come with a free tracking number so you can monitor the parcel throughout transit.
