I mentioned before that I'm looking for a particular set of CD carrying cases. It seems Europe is a dead end for buying those, and I'm now looking for US-based web-shops that will ship internationally. The result is very depressing and to me it explaing why shops like amazon.com are madly successful while mediocre dealers can't compare: there are real customers out here, with real money and credit cards that can charge US$ dollars even if we're not Americans!
Going through the top 10 results from Googling for CD 60 the results are either contentless referral-sites for amazon.com, who are sold out (like plaza101.com or pyramidplaza.com) or referral sites for etronics.com (like sotechs.com/eTronics/ ). The sites that actually do sell something, like millionbuy.com or etronics.com display a mind-numbing ignorance for their potential, non-North American customers. See the below example from eTronics: you have the choice between "Checkout" and "Canadian Checkout". (Nope, "Checkout" is not for every non-Canadian citizen. Doh.)
I'm here, I'm willing to spend good money; won't someone except Jeff Bezos wake up, smell the coffee and create a proper, internationalized webshop?
