My tackle store attracts sales from all over the world, don’t know why really as I don’t target any areas other than the UK and if I get orders from Ireland they are subject to seperate shipping costs due to vayring courier firms costs.
As much as I would like world wide sales and satisfy them the same speed as I do for UK orders I don’t have control over the shipping costs. Recently had an order placed for southern Ireland and the UK shipping cost was £4.75 but to courier it to southern Ireland it was £22.50p,a lot more than what the item actually cost. Difficult one as any business hates turning orders away but it’s just not cost effective for us or the customer.
Just added shipping update info to the main page of the Tackle Store with details of orders outside of the UK mainland. Customers are also invited to contact us for sales support and shipping information at any time.
