For those that are new to or have only used your address to shop from select stores, you may not have encountered any retailers with restrictions on where they ship or to whom they will ship to.

1. Add your address to your international credit card as an alternate address. This will allow you to use your address as both your shipping and billing address. For those retailers that do not offer international countries as options for billing addresses, this tip should work for you.
