Hello Fellow Sellers,
I have just received 2 requests from other countries within the last 2 days. The messages request amusic book that only we have and are requesting that we allow them to order from other countries, we are only setup on Amazon to ship in the US.
Out of curiosity - How many sellers mail to other countries? What are your experiences good or bad? How many foreign orders do you get? What is involved in setting it up on Amazon, how difficult is it to mail packagaes? I should mention, our experiences for foreign shipments prior to selling on Amazon led us to make the decision to only sell in the USA. It is very time consuming to fill out all the shipping forms for the post office, every country has a different procedure etc., and cost us too much money with claims of INR on a high majority of the foreign orders we mailed. If memory serves me correctly in approximately 75% of the foreign orders we lost money and merchandise.
I would appreciate your insight if you have experience shipping outside the USA.
