Services to ship products from USA to the world

I do travel a lot and I do not shop much but often traveling and living in other countries give me a bit of knowledge of “local the market”.

Very often I am confronted with huge differences in prices. For example now I am trying to buy a coat for the incoming winter and I found, for the same product, difference in price of 40% / 50% in between Russia and USA.

So I am trying to buy in USA and get shipped in here. The problem is that many shops do not ship outside US so you need a service that do this for you. I am still investigating but following you will find a list of services that I found so far. Once I decided and used one I will update you with the results:

If you know any other service, something more about this or just you would like to contribute in any way please comment!

Flexible Shopping Cart

In my past years as developer I have looked at many solution for a flexible shopping cart. Many claimed to be extremely easy to use and with tons of features but none was as flexible as Ecwid an easy to customize shopping cart plugin that can be used with many CMS (WordPress, Joomla to mention few)

Definitely worth to check them out before setting up your store.
