International Shipping? Blurb’s got it

Share the Blurb:
pin it button International Shipping? Blurbs got it

Breaking news. Blurbarians asked for it and we’ve delivered.

Blurb now ships to the following countries and territories: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Guam, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Mariana Islands, Norway, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, and the Virgin Islands (U.K. and U.S.).

We don’t currently have book printers outside of the U.S., so please
keep in mind that your books are still printed in the U.S. and then
shipped overseas (and across borders). For some, the shipping costs
might be on the high side. But so many Blurbarians requested
international shipping, we just couldn’t keep them waiting any longer.

A big welcome to all new Blurbarians from Austria to the Virgin
Islands!

  1. Do you ship to Malaysia??? If you do, we would have loads of orders for you! Not just from bloggers but photographers too!

  2. Hi Pummkin,

    Because our international shipping service is so new — less than one week old — we’re obviously still in the early stages of seeing how things go.

    We’ll continue to evaluate the service as international orders come in (and ship out) and we’ll add new countries as appropriate.

    Thanks for your patience on this. We’d love to have Blurbarians in Malaysia.

  3. Is it possible to ship to other countries, for example Hungary, which is a neighbour to Austria?

  4. Gabe – Right now, we ship only to the countries listed on our pricing and shipping page. If you know someone in Austria, you can always ship the book to them, and then have them send it to you. Not a perfect solution, but it does work.

  5. Do you ship to Mexico? Its the closest country to the US, and I buy a bunch of stuff from Amazon who also delivers here through UPS without any problem since books do not pay import taxes.

  7. Why don’t you ship books to Poland. I thought Europe is europe and it really does not matter where you send it… in terms of postage there is not difference between UK, Poland or Germany.. Can you please add Poland to the list?

  8. Could you add French Polynesia to your list?

    My book went to France and back to New Zealand, and has not made it to Tahiti yet…

  9. Please add POLAND to your ship list – it’s only a small step beyond Germany…

  10. Why are your shipping costs so high? UPS is not the only shipper available, and not everyone needs the delivery asap. It seems crazy to pay more to ship the book than it costs to buy it. Room for improvement here I think.

  11. JM – We thought it best to offer shipping, albeit not the cheapest, than to *not* offer shipping to certain countries. That said, our shipping program gets evaluated and changes are made often. Expect more options soon. Thanks.

  16. Can you please let me know when you are reviewing your shipping costs – ie Australia. at the moment they are nearly as high as the books. All your competitors offer very reasonable shipping charges and i am sure your company could organise a similar deal. This seems to have been an issue for awhile and the standard response is that you are looking into it, or hopefully in the future. No doubt the profit from increased business would cover the cost of you looking into a better shipping rate. Love to hear from you

  19. Well, I left the same message on support but still no answer…
    I expect that you will be shipping to Greece, Europe, although not explicitly stated.

    And I am going to add that at least all of your competitors, as I have personally tried, certainly do!

    Well, I am now going to start making my book, order it to come to Greece and see what happens… It’s your chance to show whether your are perceiving yourself as a global Internet-era firm, or just still playing the catch-up-the-competition game!

    Hope you can reach us… The quality of your work shows that you deserve it. I would never want to add “shame about that postal thing!”…

    Regards….

  21. Shipping is rediculous! Book = $23 …. Shipping = $85 (to South Africa)

    You just lost a customer … pity I spent so much time building the book and uploading it. This is a real downer.

    Why do you not use USPS International airmail shipping?

  22. Johan,

    We’re constantly working on new shipping options. We hope to have new offerings in place within the next couple of months. In the meantime, you can always have someone else order the book for you and then send it via your preferred shipping method.

    Thanks for your patience.

  23. How can I get a list of shipping cost to canada?

  24. Hi Tom,

    You can get a shipping estimate for any book size and quantity by using our handy shipping calculator. It calculates based on weight, state or country, and zip/postal code.

    Hope this helps.

  30. Hey Nikola,

    There are some countries where it’s just too expensive for us to ship to, but we’ll see what we can do.

  31. I understand but you do send packages to Serbia and to Croatia our neighbors and I believe the cost for Blurb will be the same :-D We was before same country (former Yugoslavia)

    Anyway, thanks for the replay and I hope that Blurb will add my country in near future!

  32. Hi Blurb!
    I am full time wedding photographer and I would like that Blurb ship to Bosnia&Herzegovina. I make a lot of Blurb wedding books in Lightroom but I can’t deliver it via Blurb to my clients for now. So, please add our country. It is same like you ship to Croatia or Serbia in term of costs.
    Thanks in advance!
