Our 2nd package addresses recurrent problems faced by small business owners based outside of the United States. It is for those who would like to obtain raw materials, component parts and finished goods from various USA suppliers for consumption or resale overseas but are unable to do so, due to one or more of the following reasons:
- USA supplier accepts only USA-issued credit cards with USA billing addresses.
- USA supplier does not ship overseas.
- Your item of choice is available only in USA stores and cannot be purchased online.
We do not accommodate orders for items that are prohibited by law for export, as well as items that require special licenses or permits from federal agencies. Examples include agricultural products, alcoholic beverages, animals and animal parts, currencies, defense articles and other ITAR-regulated items, dog and cat fur, drug paraphernalia, firearms, flammable and combustible liquids, and pornographic materials.
