Smile Why not international shipping?

Hi there.

I've found some items that I want but they don't ship international.
I know if I really want it, I can use forwarding company but I am just curious why people don't accept international although I pay for shipping. Is the reason why sellers don't wanna take on risk for shipping (e.g hard to track) any other reasons? I would like to share. Thanks!

Parcels are easily getting lost compared to domestic, too many cases of international scams, slow transit time + annoying buyer = bad feedback/DSR etc...

International shipping also takes more time to ship so people don't want to wait the extra time for funds on hold to be available for withdraw.

International shipping just too many headaches, takes a long time to arrive so money takes longer to be released, cost is just too much, who knows if the package(s) will make it through the country of arrival.

I don't do International shipping period.

Yeah, most sellers will come across bad feedback due to international shipping.

Great money wise however could prove to be bad for your repuatation as a seller.

You should just email them and tell them how bad you want it and see what they say. I used to do only ship in the US back in the day and when someone did that I went ahead and shipped to them.

THey would have to have good feedback listed from the US for me to agree though.

If you really want it that bad just ask them if you can pay more for it or something.

I used to ship internationally via standard airmail. Although cheap, I had incidents where buyers claimed they did not receive. So to save myself the disputes/chargebacks which I cannot win, I stopped offering standard airmail.
I usually offer only EMS, so that I can track and delivery times won't be slow or + registered mail.
The buyers are the ones who refuse to pay for all these services since they are pricey.
