It shouldn’t come as a surprise that customers like fast and free shipping. Amazon has gotten people used to the idea that almost everything should be delivered in as little time as one or two days, much to the frustration of other independent businesses that cannot satisfy this expectation.
It makes sense that customers enjoy free delivery since it gives them the impression that they are saving money. It would be good for retailers to figure out a way to provide it, whether that entails raising a product’s price to cover the shipping expense, enticing customers to purchase things to qualify for free delivery, or requesting that they subscribe to a paid membership organization.
But here’s the bummer for many online stores and countries/territories: shipping is not always so simple and smoothest, let alone free shipping. But if you are a resident of Puerto Rico and feeling a little bummed as you wonder how you will have your purchase from Nordstrom shipped to you, we have good news for you.
Does Nordstrom Ship To Puerto Rico?
Yes, Nordstrom does ship to Puerto Rico. Their website mentions that Nordstrom offers free shipping to Puerto Rico.
However, regarding international delivery, Borderfree, a worldwide e-commerce service, now facilitates international purchases of Nordstrom merchandise. Borderfree converts all the pricing to your country’s currency and shows you the total before you complete your purchase. Borderfree enabled Nordstrom to utilize its rapid, efficient, and trustworthy shipping network.
When you place an overseas order, Borderfree will handle the transaction, but Nordstrom is glad to assist you with any customer support issues.
How to Order Through Borderfree?
By clicking the country name or flag at the bottom of the page, you may change the country’s destination for shipment.
Start shopping. Borderfree will handle your payment and shipment details once you’ve completed your purchase. Your final purchase total will include all fees and taxes, including shipping. You have the choice of paying customs and taxes at the time of checkout, or you can choose to pay them on delivery.
Your total will be locked in at the currency rate selected at checkout. Borderfree uses market data from major banks to set its foreign currency rates. These rates reflect the typical average of all currency rates that would be used in an online purchase.
Borderfree regularly updates the exchange rates used by Nordstrom.com. If the current currency rate changes while you are making a purchase, you will be notified.
Duties and Taxes
During Checkout, tariffs, foreign taxes, and value-added tax will be charged to your order total. They are based on the location of origin or production of the purchased goods and their categorization according to a defined procedure used by the countries that Borderfree supports.
You may opt to pay these obligatory fees at Checkout. If the charges are covered at Checkout, Borderfree will ensure the order total, and you will not be required to pay any additional fees at the time of order delivery.
Shipping Options and Charges
Borderfree will determine the exact cost of international shipping depending on the products you purchase, the delivery option you select, and the country to which you deliver. Unfortunately, Borderfree cannot provide free international delivery, even to Nordstrom Rewards members.
Customers can ship to several destinations internationally by submitting separate orders for each destination. Currently, Borderfree is unable to ship single international orders to various locations.
When your purchase is finalized, your item will be sent from Nordstrom to the Borderfree shipping center in the United States. Then, Borderfree sends your package to its international location.
The typical shipping time for in-stock products is 5-13 business days following order placement. A shipping range applicable to your location will be displayed at Checkout. The shipping windows provided are only estimates, and the promised arrival dates are not guaranteed.
Returns and Exchanges
International orders cannot be returned or exchanged for free, and the cost of return shipping will be charged from your refund. Original delivery costs cannot be reimbursed.
Nordstrom will assist you with your Borderfree return for a refund covering customs, taxes, and levies.
Please ask Nordstrom customer service to issue you a Return Merchandise Authorization form by contacting them. Send Borderfree the completed form together with your item(s). When Borderfree gets the paperwork and the item, it will credit your account.
In order to verify that your purchase has been returned, you will also get an email. The original taxes and duties you paid will not be reimbursed if you choose to pay them at the time of delivery (COD).
Checking the Status of Your Shipment
To track the progress of your international shipment order, you can call 1.319.546.4140 or look it up on Borderfree’s website.
