We know that shipping to Australia can be particularly expensive. That’s why we were excited to learn about Shop Mate—an easy-to-use package forwarding service set up by Australia Post. Here’s how it works:
- Sign up for an account with Shop Mate (for free).
- Place an order in our shop, and pay domestic shipping costs to send your order to the Shop Mate warehouse here in Oregon.
- Shop Mate will confirm international pricing with you, and notify you when your order arrives in Australia.
- Have you ordered delivered straight from customs!
Next time you place an order in our shop, you might be able to save some money on shipping if you use this service. Shop Mate can lower shipping costs by shipping orders in bulk. Even better, if you order other products or sewing supplies from the US, you may be eligible for a bundling discount whenever you need items shipped internationally.
Before making your decision about shipping, you can calculate shipping estimates for their services here and compare them to the shipping estimate in our shop. Then you can pick the cheaper option!
