If you have experience with international shipping, which countries do you avoid shipping to based on the following factors?

  1. Packages take months to arrive
  2. High incidence of missing packages
  3. Complicated shipping regulations

Thank you!

Hi @candra72 ,

Russia, Brazil, China, and India have tough shipping restrictions. Additionally, I have heard of cases of lost packages when shipping to Italy and Mexico. Shipping to these countries might be riskier.
