and its not only that..
do you know what hassle it is to order like that.. people think that companies in countries like egypt is compareable to small companies in US... what if your vase cracks in the package in your mail.. then you going through all that hassle again? and again?
the communication is a big problem as well.. Look at KM company for example.. have you seen their homepage.. its like a joke.. I think a child makes better homepage.. You wanna order from them to US.. not even the prices are included on the website.
Some companies are not even in buildings, its mroe like markets...
So yeah I would forget about the "order from egypt" thing cus it might be a dolalr cheaper but its not that simple as it looks
