All good. Great service I've recommended you to all my friends.

I was ecstatic to receive my first parcel and extremely pleased with the way my products had been carefully packed for shipping. The delivery of my parcel was attempted at a time when I wasn't at home but it was so easy to go online and register my parcel for pickup and was available for me to collect just 24 hrs later. While the collection did take a while with the parcel being signed out twice I was pleased that it was double checked and felt secure knowing it would be almost impossible for anyone else to collect my parcel. Also I couldn't believe how quick it was for the shipment to arrive in Australia - only 4 days! MyUS - you have far exceeded my expectations and I am one very happy customer.

WILL I PAY TAX AND DUTY ON MY SHIPMENTS TO ETHIOPIA?

Ethiopia has a “de minimis value” on imported shipments. If you are importing a shipment that is LESS than the de minimis value, you will not be required to pay duty or tax. If the declared value of your shipment if MORE than the de minimis value, you will be subject to tax and duty fees (please note that certain items may be subject to other types of fees or taxes).

  • De minimis Value for Duty: 25 ETB*
  • De minimis Value for Tax: 25 ETB*

*excluding alcohol and tobacco where duty/tax apply. Duties and taxes are not a part of your shipping costs and you may need to pay these charges upon delivery.

What is the Postage Cost for Shipping from USA to ETH?

When you ship from the US to ET from an individual website, shipping fees can be high. As a MyUS Member, you have the power of volume shipping on your side. Because we ship in such high volume, we can negotiate exclusive low rates with our shipping partners (DHL, UPS, USPS, FedEx) and we pass that savings onto you. But that’s only the beginning. We also lower shipping costs by:

  • Offering free parcel bundling: Shop multiple stores and we’ll combine your multiple boxes into one shipment to save on shipping
  • Never charging our Members for airplane fuel (most of our competitors do)
  • Giving all Premium Members an extra 20% off all overseas deliveries
  • Offering MyUS TruePrice: we calculate shipping fees based on weight only, not weight PLUS box size as most competitors do

Items You Cannot Legally Ship to ETH

Customs regulations are a part of international shipping and it’s important to know the difference between “restricted” and “prohibited” goods.

Prohibited and Banned Items: Items labeled prohibited or banned cannot be imported to ETH and MyUS cannot ship these items. If we find any of these items among your purchases, we will get in touch immediately and help you return them for a refund.

Dangerous and Restricted Items: Here’s where it gets interesting. If an item is labeled dangerous or restricted, in most instances, we can still ship these items for you. Examples of restricted or dangerous items can include items such as nail polish and perfume. These may not necessarily be dangerous in use, but they can require special packaging, handling or permits. We are one of the only shipping companies have the expertise to ship these items safely and legally.

When making purchases to ship internationally to ETH, please skip these banned and prohibited items:

  • Dangerous goods and combustible materials
  • Asbestos
  • Ivory
  • Pornography
  • Soil
  • Knives
  • Non-prescription drugs
  • Acids
  • Blank stock checks
  • Animal furs

This list may be incomplete, as customs laws can be updated at anytime. Please visit Ethiopia’s official website for the most recent list of customs bans. Economy shipping is provided via USPS or FedEx Economy, Freight shipping via FedEx Freight, Express shipping via FedEx Express, DHL and UPS. The average delivery times stated above are subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. These can include, but are not limited to, dangerous weather conditions, local holidays, political issues and your local customs office. Visit our FAQs for more information.
