What is the difference between restricted and prohibited items?
Certain items may be prohibited in your country or for export from the United States, and we cannot ship these items to you. If you are not sure if an item is prohibited, please contact us before ordering.
Some restricted items can be shipped, but only after the MyUS compliance team reviews the item to ensure it complies with both US laws in and laws in your country. The compliance review usually takes less than 24 hours, but it may take one to three business days before your package is available to ship. If you have questions about shipping a restricted item, please contact us before shipping the item to your MyUS suite. Please review our list of prohibited and restricted items before you shop.
What is considered dangerous goods or hazardous material?
Dangerous goods/hazardous materials are items that require special handling, additional packaging and labeling to be transported internationally. Shipping regulations for dangerous goods are different for every country. Items considered to be dangerous goods include: flammable items or items under pressure (e.g., hairspray, spray paint, lighters, nail polish and perfume).
Dangerous goods items may be required to ship separately from non-dangerous goods items. Please view our restricted and prohibited items list for more information, or contact us for specific information regarding your country and the items you wish to ship.
How is Australian GST calculated?
GST is based on the value of the items you ship, plus any service and shipping charges. Australian customs collects GST on individual merchant shipments over 1,000 AUD, and MyUS is responsible for collecting GST on shipments equal or less than 1,000 AUD. Any GST charges will appear on your ship request.
GST is valued and charged for each individual store (e.g., if you ship a consolidated package with MyUS with a $200 item from Store A and $1,200 item from Store B, MyUS will collect the GST for Store A, and Australian customs will collect the GST for Store B.) Learn more

Are there any special considerations when shipping to Argentina?
Argentinian customs requires a CUIT/CUIL to be provided for each shipment. If you are shipping to Argentina, please enter the CUIT/CUIL of in the Tax ID field at checkout. If the customer is not an Argentinian citizen, please enter their passport number in the Tax ID field. Argentinian customs will not allow the import if this information is missing, and your shipment may be returned at your expense.
Completing Form 4550
Argentinian customs will provide you with a “number particular” or import number when your shipment reaches Argentina. You will then need to go to the AFIP website to complete the online Form 4550/T-Compras a proveedores del exterior. Your carrier will deliver an “Aviso 3579” notification letter to the consignee which provides instructions on this new process. Please check with Argentinian customs to be sure the consignee has a CUIT/CUIL with an AFIP access level of 2 or greater.
