Ordering Emmrod Compact Fishing Systems from outside of the US

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Hi, I follow my hits on a daily basis.  Lately, I have noticed a lot of hits from outside of the US.  Additionally I have had a couple of orders from outside the United States of America.  I think it is about time for me to make a few p0ints.


1.  Ordering from Canada.  Looks like you need to figure in about 15 percent sales tax and add about 6 – 8 days for processing through Canadian Customs.  My order shipped just fine but was delayed for close to a week and my buyer had to pay those taxes.  He said his Emmrod compact fishing poles were worth it and he was pretty happy with them thus far!  I do accept credit card orders from Canada as I do not have to worry about the banks on them.

2.  Ordering from anywhere other than the USA and Canada.  Because we have had a consistent problem with credit card fraud and are not protected by the usage laws here for use in other countries, we can not accept credit card payment on your orders.  I am very sorry as there just is nothing more convenient.  I AM checking into Pay Pal as that might be an easier alternative.  In the meantime, I will ship to overseas destinations and accept orders from overseas with the following understandings:

a.  The payment has to be by a Money Wire to my bank account.  To calculate the full amount due, here is the general formula:  Merchandise + Shipping/handling/insurance + $13.00 Money order processing cost at my bank.    The actual cost of postage is really tough to figure and we would need to do individual costing to figure that out.  I would also include insurance in that calculation.  Shipping by DHL, FEDEX or UPS may be a better option.   I do look forward to receiving orders from overseas and will work to make your Emmrod Fishing Experience dreams a reality.  Email me with what you think you want to buy.  Also include a brief description of how you fish and what you fish for including the weight of the typical fish you catch.  With the high shipping costs, money wire costs and potential customs costs, I want to be sure you get the best pole for the fishing you want to do.
