Cheapest Shipping from the US to Nigeria using DHL
DHL eCommerce is one of the most popular shipping services for sending goods to Nigeria cheaply. As a tracked global mail delivery service, the price is cheaper than express couriers because the transit times are slower but the quality of the service is still very good. You can book this courier online using our shipping calculator, print the shipping labels and customs documents and drop off your package at your local USPS Post Office. USPS then sort the package at their depot and DHL ship it overseas to Nigeria where the local postal expert will complete the process. You will still be able to view the tracking when your package is sorted and once it has been delivered.

Reduce your shipping costs to Nigeria
Nigeria is one of the larger African nations, with more citizens than any other country in Africa. In fact, in total population, Nigeria's 158.2 million citizens rank number seven worldwide, meaning the number of parcels being sent to Nigeria is considerable. When it comes to the government since Nigeria's 1960 move to independence the country has closely followed the republic model popularised by the United States.
Due to often difficult living conditions, Nigerians regularly immigrate to the United States, as well as European countries like the United Kingdom, so it could well be the case that packages being sent from around the world are being sent back home by Nigerian expats. Nigeria is a middle-class country and is characterized as an emerging or developing nation.
The country is rich in natural resources, has its own stock exchange, as well as a reliable communications infrastructure. The US is the largest investor in Nigeria, although British companies also invest measurably in Nigeria's economy. A full 40% of Nigeria's GDP is centered around oil production. Other strong industries include telecommunications, financial sectors, natural gas, gold, lead, iron, cocoa, yams, citrus fruit, and sugar. Strong manufacturing items include fabric, leather, plastics, and automobiles.
In a recent PayPal survey 31% of Nigerians who do not shop online cited concerns over the security of payments as a reason for not doing so, so eCommerce retailers need to resolve this issue, and install trust in the buyers by providing tracked and speedy delivery of goods.
