Occasionally, we get customers from outside the US who want to purchase our products. I thought I’d put a little insight into why we haven’t been able to provide that service.
- We ship from many different distributors –this means that each of them have to be set up for international shipping and have the ability to process the paperwork needed. Right now they are not all on the same page
- AVS – Address Verification System. We use this as our primary method of verifying that an order is not fraudulent. We ship to addresses that can be verified. International cards are not on this system yet.
- Shipping costs for ALL the options for all the different duties, customs and rates around the world. This is just not cost effective for us at this time based on the demand we get from outside the US.
So at this time we are still waiting for the “stars to align”.
