Goods in the US are often less expensive than they are in many other parts of the world. However, many US online retailers do not offer international shipping, and those that do often charge very expensive rates for over-seas shipping. With ExpatExpres, you can buy from any US store as if you were right here in the states. Then, we will "forward" your items on to your address anywhere in the world at very low rates.

We offer over 14,000 grocery and household items in our online grocery store. We purchase the items directly from local stores, carefully pack them, and ship them to you within 2 business days of receiving your order.

FORWARDING

US Shopping Online

Step 1: Shop for it

Go shopping online at any US based etailer and find the products you want. If you'd like help finding the best deals on the items you want, visit our Shopping tab.

Once you find what your looking for, start the checkout process.

Prohibited Items
Some items are not able to be exported from the US. Visit our Policy page.

Buy and Ship from any US Store

Step 2: Ship It

During the checkout process, when you are buying your items, enter your ExpatExpress address as your shipping address. Be sure to include your Customer ID in the second address line of your shipping address ~ this way we will know the package belongs to you when it arrives at ExpatExpress.

Your ExpatExpress ID and ExpatExpress Address can be found by visiting your Account tab.
Ship from US to your location

Step 3: Confirm it

When we receive your package at ExpatExpress we will notify you by email. You will be able to see the details, including a picture of your items, by visiting the Manage Orders tab.

You may tell us to ship your items right away, or have us hold your items if you have additional purchases on the way. (The more items you ship together, the more you save!) We may need you to confirm the customs value of your items before we can ship.

We will consolidate your items into the fewest boxes possible for free. If we need to use a new box for packing, there will be an additional charge (see "New Box Fee" below.)
Track your package

Step 4: Receive it

Once you instruct us to ship, we usually process the order within the next business day. If you requested the "Tell Me The Cost" option, we will pack your items and let you know the final cost before we charge your card. You will need to approve the charge before we ship.

We will deliver your items right to your door usually within three to five days. You can track your shipments in the Recently Shipped section of the Manage Orders page.

There may be duties or taxes due upon delivery. You may read more about duties and tax on our Policy page.

Buy For Me Service

Buy from US Stores for Me

Our Buy-For-Me service is a great way to get the things you want from US online shops that don't accept non-US credit cards. Simply use the Buy-For-Me link at the bottom Manage Orders page to let us know what you're looking for and we'll do the shopping for you. Make sure you include details like color, size, etc.

If you're buying from more than one store, we'll consolidate your orders and save you money!

With the Buy-For-Me service, we will charge your card once when we buy your items, and a second time when we ship them to you. See "Fees" below for more detail.

Buy-For-Me cannot purchase items that are on auction.
