    As an Alaskan that shops eBay now and again, I'm frustrated with this exclusive statement. I run into this twice... where I really wanted an item, and the seller wouldn't budge one iota. I was willing to make up or cover the difference in shipping, ship to a verified USPS address, and most every other reason, but the sellers wouldn't budge.

    I chalk it up to general ignorance and an unwillingness to do business. Their loss... I can go elsewhere or bide my time.

    When driving to AK or HI, just put the top up on your convertible.

    I can totally understand that frustration. I don't get it either - as long as a buyer is will to pay the sometimes
    VERY significant difference to ship to AK or HI why not? The ONLY reason I don't ship outside the USA anymore
    is the hassle of the customs forms and declarations. I want "click and ship" and drop it on the counter the PO
    without an hour long wait to be told I used the wrong customs form or whatever.

    I often post in my ads CONUS only, mainly because I usually offer free shipping. Yes, it does cost considerably more to ship out of CONUS via UPS or USPS. Sometimes, depending on the item, I'll ship to Alaska or Hawaii, or I'll split shipping. I once shipped shirts to Hawaii and Australia via USPS. Guess which one was the cheaper rate. It wasn't Hawaii.
