Here’s 9 awesome products we love that you can explore buying cheaper overseas…

1.  Children’s Designer Fashion

If you like to dress your child like a mini-fashionista you’ll know there’s lots of big-name labels that currently don’t ship to Australia. The advantage to buying your fashion from Europe or the States is that with the seasons the opposite of our own you can shop the sales to great success. Their winter clearance is our new winter wardrobe! Yes please.

shop & ship2. Women’s High End & Brand Name Make-Up

All the big make-up brands can be purchased at considerable savings overseas. Tip: There’s also a way to shop across brands if you like a Chanel lipstick and a Lancôme foundation – find a department store that stocks all your brands and then use Shop & Ship to have them delivered to your door! This way you don’t have to use independent retailers for each item and you can skirt around some of the more sophisticated geographic websites which will automatically re-direct you to the Australian home of the brand.

3. American Girl Dolls (And Stacks of Other Toys!)

If you’ve got an American Girl Doll fan in your house you’ll know the cult-like status of these toys! Shopping for your American Girl Doll using Shop & Ship will mean you’re not limited to any specific retailer (and they are sold in ToysRUs since 2016!) This way you’re not just open to a greater range but to also compare prices. Winning.

ship&shop4. Women’s Designer Fashion & Handbags

If you love your brand name labels and want to shop them direct from Europe or the USA without the sting of the Aussie price tag, Shop & Ship is your new bestie. From Prada to Versace, if you’ll find it on the catwalk you can find it cheaper overseas. Research, research and then Shop & Ship.

ship&shop5.  Cool American Brands

There’s staple American brands that are cheap as chips in the States but expensive here. Think GAP, American Apparel, Victoria’s Secret and Ralph Lauren. You choose them and then with the help of Shop & Ship to get them to your door, these wardrobe basics and classic pieces can be hung in yours, dads or the kids wardrobe quicker than you can say ‘I’ll take it all!’

ship&shop6.  Party Theming Products of All the Latest Crazes

If you love planning themed parties the products available overseas are twice as good and half the price overseas! Branded themes like Paw Patrol, Pokemon or Trolls have more range than you can even imagine. And, bonus – you’ll get so much more for your money. Don’t forget to allow time for your items to be delivered! Plan early and you’ll be on a party-winner!


7.  Lego

If you’ve a mad Lego fan in your house you probably already shop the sales for the world’s favourite bricks! Shop & Ship however gives you access to ranges and products not yet available in Australia that are released in the USA or Europe meaning Lego fans can build until their heart’s content!


8.  Tech That’s Not Released Here Yet (or available cheaper somewhere else)

With the ability to shop from 18 countries if it’s been developed and you want to get your hands on it, Shop & Ship can help you own it.

shop and ship9. Active Wear, Athletic Gear, Sports Stuff & Cool Trainers 

Shopping OS for the latest sport and active wear brands can be tricky with many of the big names not shipping direct to Australia!

  • Nassep

    Five hundred dollars enough to treat everyone to a present in our family but I would get a new pair of sunnies and then share the joy

  • Casey Kickett

    I’d gladly spend $500 on some bearable undies, new workout tights and a pair of new joggers for basketball; it’d give me some motivation to get my butt moving in this cold weather! Add some perfume for Mum’s birthday and there’d be 500 more reasons to wait for the mail!

  • May

    I would love to get myself new athletic gear! Shoes, pants, shirts and sweaters

  • Kelly Ryan

    It’s all about LEGO in this house, the bigger the construction piece, the better!

  • Heidi O’Day

    Hats! Cool old fashioned,colorful,fun hats! Hats make me happy. I love so many and the ones I had went moldy in my last crappy flat so I need some new ones. No matter how boring and tired your outfits are, a hat always jazzes them up! I’m not super trendy when it comes to fashion but accessories I shine!

  • Kristyne Love

    Pressies for a few special people

  • Patricia Harkin

    Some high tech gear and toys for my granddaughter

  • britishstorm

    Cosmetics that I can’t get here and especially at the prices you can get them for over seas!

  • Laura Scriven

    Active wear from the States,
    The prices are great!
    And so much of a range,
    With $500 I’d so insane!

  • livvy c

    NIKE! Oh my goodness me… I would have a field day spending this money at the Nike Store.. Very happy children and hubby (plus me..lol)

  • Laura Baker

    Now my baby is 10 months old, I’ve joined the gym. However, I feel self conscious. New Active Wear would help get my confidence back.

  • G.A

    tech and fashion

  • Tarnia Fedele

    I’d buy presents and gifts for all, online shopping is a ball! I’d buy some brand new clothes! So many things to buy, what I’ll get who knows?

  • Alysse

    I’d buy the ridiculously expensive tea strainer from Harrods for a daily giggle with it sitting next to my Kmart mugs. Rags to Riches!

  • Elizabeth Davey

    patty cake patty cake bakers man, I swear my kitchen Aid mixer can do more than I think it can, accessories are expense and so with glee I would shop Amazon for Kitchen Aid accessories

    My two boys would take anything gaming and are hinting about VR gaming. So I think that is what I would be buying

  • michelle brown

    Something for me, something for hubby and something for the kiddies 🙂

    i’d buy an air fryer from wonderchef

  • Colin Burt

    great prize lots of random things I would like to buy

  • Shu-Ching Chang

    The true is that Australia has GST for most goods. I love big brands with a affordable price. Shopping Dior fragrances and last advanced technology would be fabulous items for this Christmas time. It is a serious shopping website for my shopping spree.

  • Helen

    Perfume. Wow with $500 I could have the best.

  • Vesna

    Air fryer from wonderchef would be fantastic !!!

  • Lucy

    Summer clothes coz I’m over Winter!

    It would have to be Lego. I’m one of those parents that love it when the kids go to bed so I can build & create without the interruptions.

  • Thisislinds

    I’m at the start of my first pregnancy so I will be buying some bigger clothes for the impending bump :/

  • Tess Howard

    My son is an Usain Bolt wannabe and is going great guns in Little Aths. This year he moves into proper starter blocks and spikes, but the problem? He’s got really small feet and those sizes of spikes are very hard to get here in Aus. Would go for some swanky sports gear from USA for my future Olympian!

  • Nicola

    I would love to take advantage of the cheaper prices on clothing and make-up overseas!

  • Kristy Nicholson

    Some cool bohemian-style dresses!

  • Bec Church

    I would love to buy my family a nice dinner out and a movie, time together.

  • Lin B

    There are so many things I’d love to buy: Morph merchandised toys for my kids (from the UK), kooky homeware items that either aren’t available here or are marked up 700%, clothes from the US that actually fit when they arrive, makeup that actually matches my pale, Casper-esque skin, books that cost 2.30 GBP yet sell for $14.95 in stores here, specialist art and craft supplies that are SO cheap overseas but prohibitive at art suppliers here…it’s a very long list.

  • Melinda Scott

    Shopping at Walmart America, they sell absolutely everything and I’d love to buy some clothes and toys for my toddler’s birthday!

  • Dianne

    Not sure where to start, there are any number of small, specialty stores that create absolutely stunning products where the shipping costs are simply prohibitive. I’d start with some specialty shortbread molds from England, purple Flylady rags and go from there.

  • Madelaine Howe

    I would love to buy $500 worth of lootcrate- goodies and shirts <3

  • Holly6

    I’ve often day-dreamed of filling my drawers,

    Along with Ralph Lauren fashion in all different hues!

  • Tambo

    I’d go crazy at Amazon!

    Amazon would be the way to go.
