I see people all the time state....just go over to amazon UK, Europe etc to get that game....


When I do and add item to cart all I EVER get is this.....


We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination.




Is there something I am doing wrong or is Missouri a geographic anomaly and you cant get anything here???



Just curious...I am sure I am a dufus and doing something wrong...

Thanks

Items fulfilled by Amazon can be shipped to the US. If it is fulfilled by a 3rd party it usually can't.

It is impossible to get the true (and non-linear) cost of postage overseas to fit the Amazon postage formula (linear) in a way that is fair. This is why many UK and presumably European sellers on Amazon (like us) don't offer overseas posting.

OK, so it must be just my luck I am "trying" to purchase from normal Joes like myself other than a retailer etc that is fulfilled by Amazon.

I suspect that things shipping from Amazon directly can be combined into one shipment going to the US for a better rate, while there probably isn't sufficient volume for 3rd party fulfillment to get any better rates shipping to the US. So Amazon can afford to ship to the US, while 3rd party fulfillment can't.

You could also try asking the Amazon customer service if there is a bug. I was attempting to purchase something directly from Amazon and I was getting that same message saying it couldn't be shipped to my location. I asked customer service and they sorted it out for me.
Just do a double check on who you are actually getting the item from.
