Please note that some sellers may not ship to every country. It is the seller's option to choose which countries they will ship to. Additionally, some items may not be suitable for international shipment because of technical issues or because of local regulations. For example, DVDs will sometimes not play in another region, and certain symbols are prohibited in some countries.
On orders shipped to a country that the seller is not located in, the seller always has the right to decline shipment by providing a full and prompt refund.
Certain countries are rife with fraud and sellers are strongly advised to not ship to Nigeria and other remote regions of the world.
Most international buyers and sellers are wonderful, responsible people.
But use common-sense when shipping internationally. Discuss any details in advance and be certain to provide a correct address and phone numbers.
Paying using PayPal or a credit card is usually a smart way to pay. Both the buyer and the seller receive a certain degree of protection.
If an international seller asks you to send money via Western Union or a check, you would be well advised to decline. Never, ever send money via Western Union. If you do, you will have absolutely no recourse.
