Shein is a US-based online store that specializes more in women’s clothing. What makes this store frequented by people all around the world is their inexpensive clothing. This feature is their edge over other fashion retailers.
Does Shein Ship to Nigeria?
Yes, Shein ships to Nigeria. A lot of Nigerians buy their clothes from this US-based online fashion store, and it is possible to ship them to Nigeria without having to use a shipping forwarder.
Even though Shein ships to Nigeria, there is the possibility that some of their items won’t be shipped to Nigeria (we will show you how to use a shipping forwarder for such items). Nevertheless, a large portion of what they offer is shippable to Nigeria.

How to ship with a shipping forwarder?
On their page, Shein states it usually takes 10 to 28 days for your order to arrive in Nigeria, but there have been instances where people said it has been a bit longer than that. If you want a speedy delivery, then you can use a ship/freight forwarder. They will help you handle your shipping once Shein delivers your order to them. Here are the steps involved:
1. Register with a shipping forwarder
There are a lot of shipping forwarders and some are more expensive than others. One popular shipping forwarder is MyUS.com because they work directly with most US stores, and their fees are somewhat low with no added taxes. You can also do your research and find other ones with quality service.
Contact the shipping forwarder, then state what you’ll like to ship so you can know how much they charge and if it’s within your budget. If it is, then you can proceed.
2. Place your order
The shipping forwarder will give you a US-based address which is where your items will be shipped to. You’ll go over to Shein and make your desired purchase and checkout. When you’re inputting your info in the address section, you’ll input the US address that your Shipping forwarder offered you.
Shein will ship your items to the address. When your shipping forwarder receives your items, they will be merged into a package and they will be shipped to Nigeria.
If you are having any problem with the order, most shipping forwarders offer a concierge service that will place the order on your behalf so that everything will go smoothly.
3. Receive your items
All you need to do is wait until you receive your order. You can also keep track of your order status if you want.
Payment method to use on Shein
Shein offers a variety of payment methods for settling the charges on your orders, but as we know, in Nigeria certain payment methods are not functional. What you’ll have to use is either your Visa or MasterCard to purchase your items.
Some people said that they have been able to use a verve card as well, but as of now, there is no information available on whether they allow the use of verve as a form of payment.
If you have any issue regarding your transaction, Shein doesn’t take responsibility, instead, they will tell you to consult your card-issuing bank for information.
Coupon Code And Bonus Points
Shein offers a coupon code as a way of getting discounts on your purchase. For first-timers, you’ll automatically get a free coupon code. From time to time they offer free coupons as well, based on certain purchases you make.
During checkout, you can apply the coupons and bonus points, and the discount you’re offered will reduce the total cost.
We made sure to offer you a delivery alternative if the item you want to buy isn’t shippable to Nigeria by Shein. Using a shipping forwarder can be a bit costly, but you get the added advantage of better item protection.
