Simply put, vendors are losing out on a larger international customer base, whilst the international customer is losing out on the ability to either order products for themselves or to ship these products to relatives that may live in other parts of the globe. A US mail forwarding service will also address the other prohibitive restrictions that could influence the choice to obtain a desired product from a specific vendor, and these include:
- The need for a US mailing and US billing address (popular vendors such as Apple are very strict in their fraud protection policies and absolutely require a matching mailing and billing address)
- Shipping tariffs for customers
- International fees and foreign tax credit rules (duties can amount to very little or can take you by surprise, we help customers find out what they may expect)
- IRS expectations faced on vendors who are able to consider an overseas mail forwarding service
Although freight tax enforcement has been a low priority for the IRS, there are regulations that require online retailers to file extensive paperwork, even if they do qualify for an exemption. However, a US mail forwarding service, such as what we offer at OPAS, is solely devoted to staying up to date on these regulations, and covering the appropriate concerns that would be handled by vendors.
