Iam guessing they probably use a shipping and forwarding service. If said item is under a 100 dollars, it's not worth the added cost, which at times can be as much as the item itself.
Sometimes they just don't offer the product in US for any price. It says Sold out in US or doesn't show up at all, but is available in some of the EU sites. It really ticked me off. Iam in US and even called the YOOX UK and Italy numbers to see if there was a way around it, but no dice.
An email to customer service, resulted in a standard boiler plate reply about how the YOOX marketing team decided what product is best for what countries. For once, I would like to see their customer service send a reply that isn't pre-written.
Ya can anyone confirm? I can't seem to recall at all when the sales happen. One poster earlier said after Thanksgiving but that doesn't totally jive with my recollection (which is piss poor regardless)
With the 40% + 15%, you're getting close to the sales I recall (70% and the like)
