Following a recent incident with an improvised explosive device on a US bound aircraft, all packages to the US will be subject to stricter screening by US authorities. This could lead to delays in your items being delivered to customers in the US.
If you sell to the US, you should:
- Amend your listing description to point out that delivery may be delayed for the above reason
- When a sale is made, manage your customerís expectations by reminding them about why delivery may be delayed
- Contact your delivery company (eg Royal Mail service) to obtain up-to-date information on delivery services to the US
