Since 2020, Indians can't access Shein’s website and we know how frustrating it is not being able to get the clothes you want. Hopefully, there's a quick solution to this issue.
This article will show you how to use a simple online tool to bypass geographical restrictions and get your best outfits from Shein!
Shein has been a go-to for women with a love for fashion. However, in 2020, Indians hit a major roadblock when the Indian government banned the Shein app and around 170 other Chinese apps due to escalating border tensions. The geopolitical friction between both countries left Indians who normally use Shein stranded.
There is a glimmer of hope though. Recent reports reveal a potential collaboration between Shein and Reliance Retail, hinting at the creation of an official Shein India website. This partnership will allow Indians to get their outfits from Shein stores again. However, there is no fixed date and we know you need an immediate fix to this issue.
The good thing about the internet is that there is some kind of workaround for issues and geographical restrictions are not left out.
We suggest using NordVPN as the service has very strong security protocols and a lot of servers all over the world. It will not just allow you access to Shein from India but also access TikTok or other content not available in your region.
Step 1: Get NordVPN and install the app for your device.
Step 2: Launch NordVPN and select a country outside India, it could be in the US, Europe or any other place you can access Shein. Click on the location of the server to connect.
Once you get connected your IP address will be hidden and it will look like the location is virtual from the server that was chosen.
Step 4: You should now be able to access Shein the same way you would if using a server in your location.
Check the wide range of Shein’s items, put your preferred ones in the cart and continue checking out as you are used to. Once you have finished your Shein shopping run, head back to the NordVPN app and disconnect from that server. This will make your real IP address and location come back.
To receive your Shein clothes in India, you'll need a physical United States postal address – a requirement Shein adheres to for shipping. However, the solution to this is freight forwarding services. Companies like MyUS.com simplify the process by providing you with a physical US address upon signup, specifically designed for placing orders from American online stores.
Once you have your US address from MyUS.com, you can use it when ordering from Shein. The Freight Forwarder takes charge of receiving your packages on your behalf and facilitates their onward journey to India when you're ready.
International shoppers opt for MyUS.com due to high reliability, lowest rates and high transparency of fee allocation. What differentiates MyUS is their consolidation service where multiple orders received are merged into one shipment prior to dispatch, so you can enjoy your latest Shein trends as if shopping from the US.
With the help of a
Yes, you can still receive Shein deliveries in India after the ban. You can use a freight forwarding service like MyUS.com that gives you a physical US address, and then send your goods to you in India.
There is hope for Shein's return to India as they recently announced a collaboration with Reliance Retail in early 2023. However, the exact reopening date remains uncertain, pending the completion of this partnership.
