Shipito.com offers package and mail forwarding services along with package consolidation services from the U.S. to other countries throughout the world. When you sign up for an account you will receive a U.S. address and suite number where you can receive your packages. When Shipito receives a package addressed to you, we will notify you and post the package on your Shipito Account landing page. After you've utilized the services available with your new account, completed the customs forms and selected your shipping, we will send the package on to your address in your home country in accordance with your instructions. Shipito offers two different types of accounts: A Free Account and a Premium membership with options for an annual fee or month-to-month invoicing. With a Free Account, your shipment will be sent to you in the same package that we receive. With a Premium membership, we can, upon your request, consolidate multiple packages into a new box, saving you substantially on your international shipping costs.

Any and all export license requirements are the sole responsibility of the individual and/or entity in contractual agreement with Shipito.
Shipito does not ship weapons (including items that assist in the functionality or manufacturing of firearms/ammunition or replicas of such items) or narcotics or other prohibited items. In addition, certain items may require special permissions or documentation or may be prohibited by your destination address or country. It is your responsibility to know these restrictions. In an effort to uphold our customs compliance standards, Shipito's prohibited and restricted items list may be more expansive than individual country or carrier laws.
You can find a listing of the prohibited items at FAQ, or Prohibited Items Tutorial. Shipito cooperates with law enforcement agencies to ensure that prohibited items are not shipped via Shipito. This includes the routine inspection by law enforcement agencies of Shipito's facilities and its Customers' packages.

If your package is found to contain prohibited items, you agree that the contents of your package may be seized and confiscated by law enforcement or Shipito.

Most Shipito customers use our services for packages only and not for forwarding of letters, magazines or items received by the US Mail. For this reason, and because there are special requirements for receiving and forwarding US Mail, our default procedure is to discard (trash) all mail that we receive. However, if you would like us to receive and forward letters and/or magazines for you, simply note this on your Shipito Account Page. In order to be eligible for forwarding of letters, your account verification must include a notarized Form 1583 and two additional forms of identification. If we do not have these documents on file, we will discard your mail. We will not forward government issued IDs, credit cards, gift cards, etc.
Each package sent to Shipito must be addressed correctly. Your correct name and Shipito mailbox/suite number must be written on each package. If a package arrives with an incorrect or incomplete address (for example missing mailbox number or an unknown or misspelled name), Shipito will try to determine whom it belongs to. If Shipito is able to determine the owner of the package, it will be entered in to the correct mailbox and we will charge an $5 address correction fee. If the owner cannot be determined and a claim with tracking information is not provided within 30 days of the package's arrival, the package will be disposed of at the sole discretion of Shipito.
Shipito will store your packages in our warehouse for up to 7 days for a Free Account and up to 45 days for a Premium Membership. However, if your package needs to be stored in our warehouse for more than 7 days or 45 days you may opt to extend the storage time for a fee or the parcel may be considered abandoned.
If a package is consolidated/combined with another package(s), the storage time limit will be based on the date of the first/oldest package arrival. Adding a package to a consolidated/combined package will not reset the storage time.
If we receive a package but do not receive the required fees and documents from you within 30 days, we will deem the package to be abandoned. Shipito will dispose of abandoned packages.
We are not able to refuse receipt of packages from carriers. Packages can be returned to vendors after they are processed into your account via a special request which has a nominal fee.
Oversized packages are any package over the size or weight limits set forth in the Shipito calculator and the specified carrier. Oversized packages are required to be divided, reduced, disposed of or returned to the sender if such packages are beyond the limits of the Shipito calculator and the specified carrier.
Upon your request, Shipito will open and photograph the contents of a package, allowing you to confirm the merchandise is correct and in good condition before requesting mailout.
Shipito is not responsible for items missing from a consolidated package without proof that the missing item was received by us. Accordingly, we strongly urge you to submit a special request for Shipito to check and photograph the contents of each package upon arrival and again during consolidation to allow you to confirm that all expected items are accounted for. All photo requests need to be requested prior to consolidation.
Consolidation of packages will not reset the storage time. Storage will be based on the first/oldest package to arrive at Shiptio in the consolidation
Unless you request otherwise, we will remove all catalogs during consolidation. Catalogs add to shipping costs, and most customers want them removed.
