5 Steps to Getting Started: Shipllama e-Forwarding


What is ‘e-Forwarding’? e-Forwarding provides Canadian shoppers with the freedom to buy from any online US Retailer – including those who don’t ship to Canada! Just use Shipllama’s US address and we will get your order to you. Check out our e-Forwarding video to see the process!


To get started with Shipllama e-Forwarding, follow these steps!


1. Place your order with a US online retailer

Have you been eyeing a new bikini, pair of shoes, or the perfect sweater for what seems like forever? We’re here to help! You no longer have to wonder about ‘what could have been’ or reminisce about the purchase that got away – simply place an order with any US online retailer, and we’ll get that order to you. How? Read on!


2. At checkout, use Shipllama’s US shipping address

We’ll give you our address to use at checkout. Just include your name, and, if possible, list ‘Shipllama’ as the company, and fill in the shipping information with the address we provide you. Your purchase will come to us, and from there, we’ll get your purchase to you!

3. Advise Shipllama of what to expect at their US facility

Let us know what you ordered, the name it’s under, and where in Canada it needs to go! Then when we receive it, we’ll be on the same page and can process your order right away.


4. Once received, we notify you with full disclosure of all charges (duties, taxes, shipping & handling)

Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about unexpected duty and import fees at the time of delivery? Now you don’t have to! With Shipllama, we tell you when we receive your package, and how much it will cost upfront. That price includes duties, taxes, shipping, and handling fees so you won’t ever have any unwanted surprises.


5. You approve it and we deliver it to you in Canada – no surprises!

Even before we ship your product to you, we’ll wait for you to approve all of the costs. Once you’ve approved everything, we’ll send your purchase your way! It’s really as easy as that.
