A while back, someone told me that Americans in Central America have mail services that operate in Florida. They use the Florida address and then the service there gets their mail to them periodically.

Might be an option?

Do you have any friends in the US that you can ship them to, and then have them mailed on? (Or sometimes, depending on the store, you can just call them and they can do it, even if it doesn’t say on the website.)

Yes! I use a service called My US I think..it generates a US shippping adress for you, and then the company will ship your product out of country. Thats how I bought my wedding shoes off DSW!

We have the same thing in Canada too. There are a lot of companies that don’t ship to Canada, despite the fact that we are right across the border. A lot of that has to do with border issues/duty costs/expensive tracking in Canada.

 

So, the people that regularly buy items online from American companies (and most people live along the border though), they have it shipped to an American border city. They go there regularly to pick up the items. You can rent a mailbox for a small fee and they hold your items till you pick it up.

 

Now that you are in Malta, I would investigate companies that do this sort of service, but would be willing to ship to you for a small incurred fee. If I can find the service’s website, I’ll edit my post accordingly.

I haven’t used it but I found a company that would ship to the EU when I was looking at buying a bike from the us. theyre called bongo international and it looks like they forward packages to Malta as well.
