I really love shopping from Amazon, the reason being that, there are awesome items on Amazon, secondly, they’re of good quality and somewhat affordable.

There are some products in most US online stores that don’t get shipped to Nigeria and if they ship to Nigeria, you won’t be comfortable with the shipping costs.

Today, I will be doing a Heroshe review where I will talk about their shipping rates, shipping delivery time, and much more because I believe that’s one of the most important things to find out while choosing a third-party shipping company.

How much does it cost to ship with Heroshe?

Well, I would gladly say, Heroshe shipping rates is affordable.

They charge as low as $5 per pound (Ibs) and the naira equivalent been N2,250. This means, $5 = 1 pound (Ibs).

If you don’t ship heavy items, your total order might likely be between 1 pound to 3 pounds, or even less than that.

  1. I pray they’re better than shoptomydoor. Their fees seem affordable and there are no hidden charges.

    1. Left shoptomydoor after using them for over 7 years. The experiences got worse. Stumbled upon heroshe and have used them for a while now. They have a good service though.
