Getting Amazon Shipments in the Virgin Islands

Has anyone had any luck ordering from Amazon for delivery to the Virgin Islands?

Amazon's web page says they can ship to the VI's for a small fee (cheaper than shipping to a US contact and then paying shipping again down to VI's).

But I presume they require an address not just a boat name at an anchorage

Are there any like "receiving agents" that we can ship to and pick up? I tried searching but maybe I don't even know the terms to search for.

Thanks

Regular U.S. Postal Service delivery to the U.S. Virgins is the way to go. Find someone with an address you can use.

That's my problem. I don't know anyone in the US Virgin Islands. I am looking to see if there is a "receiving agent" or something that I can use (I guess even for a small fee)
