hey guys hopefully im not offending anyone with this , but its been bothering me for loooong time. How come that all rebates, offers, free stuff, bla bla bla. goes almost exclusively to the states and almost little to nothing to the rest of the world. almost on everything sold through internet. On top of that, why is 98% of people selling or trading here at mu43.com only shipping or selling to people within the states and not outside the states?!?!. Me coming from Chile, and now living in New Zealand is just terrible trying to get good deals on anything. and its almost ridiculous explaining to people that shipping outside the states is not going to get stolen, or lost!. literally out of 200 of more trades that ive done from the states literally 1 got lost and later showed up anyway after some calls. I mean honestly, getting the chance of buying a lens lets say at the same price list of B&H shipping included here in nz, it feels like I almost stole it, or got it for free (im exaggerating by this but you get the point). For example is quite frustrating that when i first jumped to m43land i got told that olympus broke here in nz and so all warranties and customer service goes through australia. Ok fair enough (for me, except for kiwis, NZ IS part of australia sort of speak), but when Olympus australia does any contest, and promotion, is only for australia. I even wrote them down saying, what about the few customers you have in NZ. yes they agreed, and i was able to jump on the contest... But its terrible to see that all posts for selling and trading here that is from people outside the states are willing to sell and ship anywhere in the world, but 98% of the listing from the states only sell within the states. how hard it is to explain that shipping outside the states doesnt need super insurance fedex super express international hundreds of dollar shipping to get to the other side and that with a regular $20 usps gets anywhere as well nice and safe.... now sorry about that...but had to say it!...seriously.
