Someone explain this.
My wife wanted to buy a particular brand of swimming goggles. We found them on a US website. So far we’ve completely failed to find any UK suppliers. The manufacturer has a US website, which is in fact that of a local distributor. They also allegedly have an international website, which is down / unavailable / not found.
The US distributor, and another US company, have the option to buy online, but they won’t ship outside of the USA and Canada. They also won’t take payment from outside of those countries. I had a brief IM session with one of them via a natty little popup Java chat window, but they were unable to help.
What makes swimming goggles any different from DVDs, books, or anything else I might choose to buy online from the US?
Muchos thanks to my helper. You know who you are *wink*
