Why all the US only ? shipping a cd outside shouldn't cost more 1 or 2 $ ?

post #50 of 196

This sounds pretty groovy, but because I've never done it before I have a few questions before I sign up:

 

1. Do we just get our partner anything that we want to inflict upon them and hope that they don't have it already?

 

2. Do people usually try to account for one another's taste in music before picking out CDs?

 

3. Does everyone write about/review the CDs they got in another thread? Because that'd be pretty awesome.

It can really get up here depending on the service you use and where you have to send it.

 

For instance, FedEx is ridiculous when it comes to international shipping and they are my service of choice...and I can't get to a USPS office easily.

 

There's also he matter of filling out customs forms for international shipments.

Just buy it in an international shop that delivers to your gift partner's country? That's what I do, no customs forms needed ;)

I can understand the location thing but filling the customs, how lazy is that ? Seriously it takes about the same time as writing the addresses..

I agree, but the internet is lazy sometimes. I don't mind the customs form, but it's really about location (for me anyway).

The first two questions are the kind of thing you should discuss with whomever you're paired up with.

This is actually what everyone should be doing, instead of having an international-shipping exclusion. There's no rule you have to ship a CD to someone else especially in this day and age when there are so many online sites around the world that sell music. Amazon even has .com for USA, .ca for Canada, and .co.uk for the UK.

The customs form itself is a minor inconvenience, but sending anything internationally requires waiting in a line, and lines at USPS offices are always long. No matter where they are. Some people simply won't have the time to take out of their day to wait in the USPS line.

 

 

Btw Uncle Erik, don't add me to the list, as I'm not interested in participating, just posting here to address some of the earlier posts/questions.
