    Receiving Packages from the USA in Panama

    In this article, we provide you with the easiest way to receive packages from the United States to Panama. This gives you the option to purchase goods significantly cheaper via stores such as Amazon and eBay.

    To send packages from the United States to Panama, we recommend opening a Postbox. There are multiple companies in Panama where you can open your postbox online without any cost. These companies will make sure your package arrives from the United States to Panama, often within a week.

    Which shipping companies can I use?

    The following companies are commonly used in Panama:

    • Cargo Box Panama
    • Miami Box Panama
    • Mail Boxes Etc.
    • Airbox Express

    How does it work? 

    In this example, we use Miami Box Panama. You go to the website of Miamibox and submit the registration form. Once submitted you will receive an email within a few hours that contains your P.O. box address details. P.O. boxes of Panama shipping providers are often located in the area of Miami, Florida.

    What are the costs?

    Opening a P.O. box is free. If you buy your products in stores such as Amazon or eBay you often receive free shipping within the USA. This means the shipping costs to your PO in the USA are $0. 

    The Panamanian shipping company will charge you the cost from your P.O. box in the USA to their facility in Panama. Most shipping companies have similar fees, the shipping costs with Miamibox are:

    • 0 – 1 lb. for $5.00

    • 301 – and more lbs. for $2.25/lb

    Where do I pick up my package in Panama?

    You can pick up your package at the facility where you registered your P.O. box. Some companies have multiple locations, but your package will be at the location you chose during the registration of your P.O. box.

    Some shipping companies provide delivery to your house for a small fee between $2.50 – $5.00.
