Israel online shopping and eCommerce delivery
Only one-quarter of Israeli businesses sell online and their prices are much higher than those of foreign companies, because of high value-added taxes. Receiving goods ordered online from an Israeli company can be problematic as online orders can take weeks to arrive. In contrast, orders from overseas retailers like Amazon are delivered usually in five days. Not only this foreign goods are also much cheaper, making Israel very open to cross-border shipping. The population of over 8 million regularly shop online from markets such as China, the US, the UK, and Brazil. The prospect of faster shipping and lower prices pushes consumers to order from foreign suppliers, so why not make the most of our wide range of reliable courier services, available via our global shipping marketplace.
The young population, 37.8% of which are between 25 and 54, are getting more and savvier with shopping around so no matter where you reside, offer a shipping service to meet the demand. Of course, not all parcels sent to Israel are done so to meet the demand of the eCommerce sector, many customers will be shipping to relatives who live not only in the vast cities but in smaller places such as Haifa or Ashdod. The country’s middle-class population is looking for high quality, less expensive goods and are willing to buy from foreign eCommerce merchants.

For some online sellers, an Express delivery is expected by their customers, especially for more valuable goods. You can book an Express courier service with Parcel Monkey using our own brand USA Express International rates which are picked up by FedEx and delivered by DHL. This service is now also available as a Drop Off for an even better price.
International Drop Off is carried out by FedEx, and transported from the US to Israel in 2-5 days. Simply book online, print the shipping labels and Customs Documents and drop off at your local FedEx store.
Shipping times to Israel
The State of Israel was created following its independence from Mandatory Palestine in 1948 and it shares borders with Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. The capital, Tel Aviv, is interestingly half the size of the most populous city in the nation - Jerusalem. Israel can certainly be considered to be one, if not the, most advanced economy of south-west Asia which may be due to the fact that the country is very easy to do business with - the World Bank asserts that it is the 3rd on the planet.
This does mean packages can be shipped a little more quickly than other nations in the region, but it will depend on what courier service you select to handle your parcel, where you are shipping from and also the final address it is destined for. If shipping a parcel to a large city in Israel, then it can be delivered from the US as quickly as 2-5 days due to the well-established trade routes.
