How To Get Amazon Orders Shipped To Ukraine | How I Travel (2023)

Shopping on Amazon in Ukraine used to be a hassle, but not anymore. This post lays out a dead-simple process for getting orders from Amazon—or any other retailer that doesn’t ship to Ukraine—shipped right to your doorstep with zero trouble and minimal fees.


Does Amazon Ship To Ukraine?

It depends.

On one hand, Amazon ships some items to Ukraine, including much of its clothing and home decor.

But on the other hand, the infamous “This item cannot be shipped to your selected delivery location” message seems to be popping up more and more, especially when you try to buy more valuable products like cameras and electronics.

So the real answer is that Amazon ships some items to Ukraine, but not everything.

So in this post, I’m going to show you exactly how to get 100% of the items on Amazon shipped to Ukraine. Here’s how to do it.

Method #1: Amazon’s International Page

You probably didn’t know that Amazon has a special search portal that only shows you items that can be shipped to your current address.

Here’s a link to it.

But in order to make full use of that page, you first need to set up your “1-Click” address so Amazon knows what country you want to ship to. That’s the only way to ensure you get relevant search results.

To do that, go to this page, make sure your current address is listed as your default address, and enable 1-Click on the right side.

Then you’re all set!

Now when you go back and search for what you want to buy, you’ll only see items that ship to your current address. If whatever you want to buy still won’t ship to you, you need Method #2.

Method #2: Shipping Amazon Items To Ukraine With A Package Forwarder

Even after you set up your 1-Click address (see Method #1 above), Amazon still won’t ship a lot of items to you in Ukraine, because they only ship them within the United States. It’s notoriously difficult to buy electronics from in Ukraine, but even harmless items like books can be hard to get, too.

In those cases, you’ll need to work with a package forwarder, a company that will accept your package at their USA warehouse and forward it on to your address in Ukraine. Here’s how do do it.

Step 1: Choose A Package Forwarder

Choosing the right package forwarder is a big deal, because that decision will determine how quickly you receive your order, and how much you have to pay for the service. I spent many hours doing some deep research on fourteen of the best virtual mailboxes, scoring each of them on a wide variety of relevant metrics. Here are five of the main metrics I looked at:

  • Service Fees: How much do they charge to provide their core service of accepting and shipping packages, plus ancillary services such as long-term storage, re-packing, package consolidation, and more.
  • Monthly/Annual Fees: How much do they charge in monthly or annual fees, if at all.
  • Pricing Transparency: How much do I know about their pricing structure before sending my order to their warehouse.
  • Speed: How quickly will they process my package.
  • Customer Service: How satisfied are other users with their service, and how thoroughly/quickly do they respond to my questions.

After reviewing the data I collected on these and other metrics, it became clear to me that Planet Express was the best choice for this job. Their customer service team responded to my emails quickly and thoroughly, they have thousands of 5-star reviews online, and their fees were consistently lower than all of the other package forwarders I looked at.

Here are a few other things I like about Planet Express:

  • Planet Express has a tax-free warehouse in Oregon, so you can avoid paying sales tax on your orders.
  • Planet Express will consolidate multiple packages into a single box, significantly reducing shipping costs when you make multiple purchases.
  • Planet Express sends you free photos of your package as soon as it arrives at their warehouse.
  • Planet Express offers extremely cheap storage for your packages. Every package receives 10 days of free storage, but after that, Planet Express only charges one cent per pound per day. That means storing a 1-lb package in their warehouse for a month only costs $0.30!

Step 2: Ship Your Order To Planet Express

As soon as you’ve signed up for Planet Express, you’ll receive a unique mailing address at their warehouse. Once you decide on the items you want to buy, just enter your Planet Express mailing address instead of your home mailing address and you’re all set.

If you’re not able to enter your home address as your credit card billing address, you should also be able to use Planet Express’ warehouse address without any issues.

Step 3: Forward Your Package

As soon as your order arrives at Planet Express’ warehouse, they’ll send you photos of the package to let you know it’s arrived. You’ll also be given a series of shipping options to choose from.

I find that there’s generally at least 4 shipping options corresponding to 4 different price-speed combinations. Sometimes there can be as many as 10 or more shipping options—it just depends on the weight, size and value of your package.

My Personal Experience

I’ve used Planet Express more than a dozen times to ship packages to different parts of the world, and the experience has always been very smooth. Here’s how things went the last time I did it.

First, I had my order sent to my unique address at the Planet Express warehouse. Less than 48 hours later, I received an email from Planet Express letting me know that my order had arrived, which is extremely quick.

Second, I filled in Planet Express’ super-easy customs declaration form with the four pieces of information required:

  1. The item being shipped
  2. The number of items being shipped
  3. The value of the item
  4. Whether the item contains batteries

Third, I chose the shipping option I wanted from a list of eight. Prices ranged from $6-$35 USD, plus insurance at an additional $2 USD, so I chose the cheapest one ($8 USD, including the insurance), and I was done. My package was shipped out later that same day, and when it arrived, everything was in perfect shape.

The Costs (Customs & Duties)

In my experience, the price I paid ($6 USD + $2 USD in insurance) is pretty standard for shipping packages from Planet Express to Ukraine. I didn’t have to pay any customs or duties on my order, but that depends on the value and type of item you buy.

If you’re uneasy about how much you’ll have to pay to have your order shipped to Ukraine, I suggest using Planet Express’ shipping calculator above, or enter your items into a customs & duties calculator to help you estimate the cost.

In Summary

Overall, shipping Amazon items to Ukraine using Planet Express is surprisingly easy and smooth. The costs are low, and in my experience you’ll actually end up saving money, since Amazon’s prices are often much lower than those of local retailers in Ukraine.

If you’re shopping on, or any other retailer that only ships to the USA, I highly suggest making use of Planet Express.
