Default AusPost launching a US mail forwarding service

Via Springah on twitter: AusPost are launching a service so you can buy things that ship to US addresses only and they will forward them here.

"Shop like you live in the USA"

Seems pricey, min $25 postage per item, but I don't know how much the US based forwarders cost people?

Actually, I'd say that's a great price, even for things that do ship to Australia. Much better value than eBay's global shipping.

So you don't pay the US postage, just whatever they cost you? It could make buying on TFW easier, since a lot of dealers only ship to the US.

The problem is that you are unable to consolidate packages, like any decent shipping forwarder does.

Still, it's a start.

Now make one for Japan!!

I wonder if it makes bbts and ttfsource shipping cheaper considering from them to the auspost warehouse is free for orders over $150
