There are always countless posts on the sales corner wondering why US sellers won't sell outside of their own country. Here's why:
October 22nd, 2007
I sell an Omega SMP to a guy in Canada and ship the same day.
November 15th, 2007
No sign of it
November 18th, 2007
Paypal reversal since there isn't a trackable system to Canada.
December 5th, 2007
USPS institutes a mandatory search period. 60 days.
March 24th, 2008
Package is lost so they are sending claim paperwork. I fill it out and send it in.
April 24th, 2008
Claim denied for sending prohibited items through the USPS. Watches are apparently banned in Canada and are prohibited items.
Next time a seller won't sell to another country, don't ask why. This is probably one of the reasons. I am past the 6 month mark on having money returned to me. Now it looks like I'm out a bunch of money.
