Cheap shipping to the Bahamas
The Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 hundred islands, ten of which are considered major islands which can mean it is expensive to ship to this destination from the US. With this in mind, it is understandable to see large numbers of Parcel Monkey customers using our shipping calculator to get a discounted shipping rate.
We provide tracked mail using DHL eCommerce as well as a selection of discounted USPS rates to help you save money on shipping to the Bahamas. Please be aware transit times to the more remote islands may take longer.
DHL Bahamas Service
DHL eCommerce was designed for those selling online to reduce the cost of cross-border delivery, but it also allows individuals and small businesses to cut their shipping costs from the US to destinations all over the world. It is a tracked mail service so transit times are slower than express delivery and the tracking is not as frequent, but when it comes to price and reliability it is perfect for low value and nonurgent items. Even if you are shipping a 10lb box, it will almost be half the price of USPS to the Bahamas.
USPS Bahamas Delivery
If you are sending an important package that is time sensitive, then you should consider using the USPS. We offer Priority Mail and Express options for when the package needs to be delivered quickly. Simply book online and print your shipping labels and attach them with your Customs Documents to the outside of the box and drop off at your local Post Office.
eCommerce in the Bahamas
Tourism is the largest contributor to the economy, so we do see a large number of business consignments being shipped to do with this. Buyers in the Bahamas are brand conscious and prefer to spend their money on American brands they trust.
eCommerce has a big presence in the Bahamas with consumers looking to eBay and Amazon to make purchases and the destination is heavily reliant on mobile shopping with mobile phone penetration one of the highest in the world. If you sell on these marketplaces and can reach your customers at discounted shipping rates, the Bahamas provides a great opportunity.
