    Generally, most just do not want to deal with the extra paperwork. Some have been burned before from International buyers. Some do not know how to ship Internationally and don't wish to learn. We ship Internationally and to Australia all the time. Never been bit...yet!

    Are you looking at that Laser Atlanta? There is a repeat UL sellier in Australia that puts them up frequently. Just keep checking.

    Yeah I don't understand it either, the extra paperwork is only a customs declaration form slap that on, pay the postage and it's done.

    If you don't have a US based contact to have your stuff forwarded through you can use a US mail forwarder, I've never used them but heard shipito is pretty good compared to others.

    I don't like shipping anything too valuable overseas, because I can't track it. If the buyer tells Paypal that they never got it, I'm SOL. $50? Fine. $1500? Too scary.

    I've shipped countless items outside the USA. I will only ship to the UK, western Europe, Canada and Australia. Everything else has been a crap-shoot.

    So that Prince from Ceelbuur Somalia who needed me to send $10,000 (cash -or CC W/PIN#) for his campaign against an evil-military-militia ISN'T going to get me the 1,000,000 as a return investment?
