    Hi everyone – I currently run an online shop that sells small products in Australia (skin care). We currently ship Australia wide and weight of most parcels are 0.5-2kg.

    We manufacture the product in Australia and sell direct to consumer via our website.

    I want to open up our website to sell overseas (eventually worldwide) but to start with USA.

    It’s too expensive to ship individual products to USA from Aus, I feel like an American customer would expect nothing more than 5-10$ shipping fee, but with how low some of their local usps charges are, i would lean more to $5.

    Is there any way or service anyone knows of that we can ship LARGE amounts of our products (100s or 1000s) at a time and have a fulfilment centre in USA ship to our local customers that buy over there?

    If not, any other alternatives?

    Thanks in advance :)

    It sounds like you need a 3PL provider in the US – have you looked into that?

    For your situation I’d suggest starting with Fulfilment By Amazon (FBA)

    Hi everyone thank you so much for the quick replies. I’m exploring these now.

    I read a little about FBA – that would mean I have to only sell on Amazon though?

    I’m 99% certain you can sell from your website and then FBA picks, packs and sends it for you.
