Our shopping cart won't let you because it is very expensive to ship a case
of anything outside the U.S. (because they are so heavy.) From our office in
Fairfax, Virginia, it costs about $80 USD to ship an $18.95 case of Jolt to
Guam via Airborne Express. If you don't mind spending that kind of money on
shipping, of course we will accommodate you. Drop a note to Scott to get the
rub on shipping some caffeine to your particular country. For European
countries, the cost is about $55 USD per case for shipping via Airborne
Express. For Canada, the cost is about $40 USD per case for shipping.
And don't forget, import duty is due on the price of the product, and VAT on
the price + duty + shipping... it's a royal PITA, because AE always charge
me (and sometimes charge the wrong amount (100 quid for a 40$ delivery, I
think not guys)).
