This is for folks who are not residing in the United States; if you reside in the US, you don’t need a third party shipper.
While I try to ensure that all products listed on my Amazon store are eligible for international order and shipping, Amazon can change their international order eligibility anytime. Sometimes the change in international order eligibility can be within a day e.g. I have come across products that I have chosen to list on my Amazon store being eligible for international order and shipping on Monday. By Tuesday evening, they were no longer for eligible for international order and shipping.
