Hi, I'm curious as to why US-based TBers (the vast majority) very often state "48 states only" or "CONUS only". Are there additional hassles involved in sending goods outside the US? I know from having bought US-sourced products that the value of the goods has to be stated on a sticker on the package but presumably thats not such a big hassle? Are there other reasons that make shipping say to UK onerous? I ask as I have on a number of occasions seen things for sale on TB that I would love to buy but am precluded from on grounds of geography. FWIW, there are no additional hassles in sending an item from the UK to the US as compared with sending within the UK or to (eg) France. In the UK we do have to pay import duty (c.21%) on goods from the US which can make it very expensive when this is factored in, but that is for us to pay after we have been contacted by HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs).
