    I have a store front with eBiz-u & this issue I'm going too raise has nothing too do with this company as they have been very supportive & helpful as I'm dealing with this issue, Last week I had a Australian customer try & order a very well known software program which is used across the world through my E-Store. I wrote too Amazon for a please explain & this is the E-Mail I got back from them:

    Thank you for writing to

    I find this a little bit hard too believe as I have bought games & music from overseas without any issue & yet they are saying the opposite, At the moment I have 3 choices which are:

    1: Downgrade my store too suit Amazon's shipping rules too other countries.

    2: Close down my e-store altogether & build my own affiliate marketing website.

    3: Find an alternative too Amazon where I can bypass these shipping rules, I hope you can somehow help me out in & I do apologies for the long intro I just though I'd let you know what they said.

    wunderlist: thanks for the info casper .
    I would generally say make your own affilate site if you can . but make several different sites on different themes and link them together Funny you mentioned that I was just playing around with a bit of website construction & I was thinking of having a site promoting 19 products with a product allocated a single page, However I really only want too do this if my Amazon problem can't be rectified.
