“ doesn’t ship to my country.”

Have you seen an item on only to find out ThriftBooks doesn’t ship from the US to your home country? We understand that frustration, and we're here to fix it. Thanks to MyUS, you no longer have to ask, "Does ThriftBooks ship to my country?"

Even though ThriftBooks doesn’t ship directly to all countries, MyUS has helped millions of online shoppers buy from US and UK stores by providing MyUS members with a US sales tax-free US shipping address (and a UK address). Ship your ThriftBooks purchases to MyUS, or items from thousands of other stores, and we reship to you anywhere in the world!* A MyUS ship forwarding address is your access to shop US and UK stores.

“ does ship to my country, but it’s really expensive.”

  • ThriftBooks may ship to your country, but at a marked-up price. In addition to MyUS being an accessibility option for when ThriftBooks doesn’t ship an item to your country, MyUS is also a cost-savings option for ordering an item from ThriftBooks and then reshipping to your home country, often at a lower total cost than the shipping price ThriftBooks would charge. Accessibility to shopping ThriftBooks internationally while saving money is at your fingertips with a MyUS shipping and forwarding address.
  • If a store has an online presence in your home country, MyUS members also find their US address allows them to shop for products and sales offered on the store’s US site which may be unavailable on the store’s website setup for your home country.

About ThriftBooks

ThriftBooks was founded in 2003 when two individuals, Jason Meyer and Daryl Butcher launched it. They developed a software that was able to organize a list of thousands of items which was the founding principle for ThriftBooks. They were able to start partnering with libraries across the country to help organize and sort the books that would get sent to them. They would then sell those books and return some of the profit to the libraries themselves. This partnership helped them to expand their product catalog and become one of the biggest online retailers for used books. They have remained independent and are one of the biggest book sellers that is not owned by Amazon. To this day customers use them because of their low prices and their free shipping policy for orders of over $15.
