A TikToker revealed how she ships US products to Canada and it’s the ‘biggest life hack’

If you’ve been dying to get your hands on American brands that aren’t available in Canada, a new hack shared on TikTok for shipping American goods across the border could be a game-changer.

Toronto-based TikTok user Sasha Folgoas (@sashafolgoas) shared how she gets beauty supplies from the US shipped to her home in Canada with a very simple trick.

“I ordered Rhode Skincare today and I’m based in Canada and it doesn’t ship to Canada,” Folgoas began.

She said that she uses the shipping service Shippsy to pick up things from across the border that are not sent to Canada.

“If you’re Canadian, you can order Target, you can order skin care from Sephora, […] you can order a bunch of different things that only ship to the US and you can have it delivered right to your door,” she explained in the video.

“It’s so cheap and it’s so amazing,” she said.

In the comments on her video, Folgoas said the service is “completely free to sign up and use” and that users only “have to pay a small fee for the delivery based on what the item is.”

In a follow-up video, Folgoas broke down one of her previous orders using Shippsy, showing that she paid a $6.99 handling fee to have her items shipped to her home in Canada.

“The reason some of my orders were like $20, $21 or $23 is because you pay an extra fee to have it shipped to your home,” she said, explaining that you can avoid this fee by picking up your items from a Shippsy storage.

How do I get a US item shipped to Canada?

According to Shippsy, to get items from the US shipped to Canada, all you need to do is create a free account, which will assign you a unique US address. This is where you ship your items when you shop online at US retailers.

After Shippsy receives your purchase, you will be able to see the items in your account overview. Here you must provide the necessary information to have your item brought to Canada, including a description of the item, quantity and cost.

Once your information is entered, your item will arrive in the country within 1-2 business days. Shippsy says it takes care of the necessary paperwork and shipping and will email users to pay for the fee or taxes and fees, if applicable.

From there you will be able to pick up your package from one of their warehouses. However, you may pay an additional fee to have your package delivered to your door via Canada Post or UPS.

The hack is a game-changer for Canadians, and will give citizens access to tons of products and brands that don’t ship to Canada, like Hailey Beiber’s skincare line, Rhode, or even brands like Target ⁠— and just in time for the holidays!
