The sites that appear to accept international orders (Info. as of march05,02 based on what I could determine via language-translation sites) :
 
 http://www.musimundo.com
(The site for me loads VERY slowly. Aside from that, I'm impressed with the layout/arrangement of the site and its contents. There's an FAQ/Help section if you click on the "?"-icon in the upper right corner. There's a table half-way down the page detailing the shipping&handling fees to different parts of the world (It appears that this site delivers worldwide) )

 
The Argentina retailers that do not seem to have any identifiable or clear statement or information regarding international orders :
 
 http://www.dvdnext.com.ar/
 
 http://www.lk-tel.com.ar or http://www.lk-tel.com.ar/home.asp
The only information regarding international orders that I could find was under "FAQ"-link. With a rough translation of the text under "Cómo debo de hacer para abrir una cuenta en Lk-Tel si quisiera poner un videoclub?: ", it appears that this site is a club that you must join first. And that each potential order is dealt with on a case-by-case basis depending on the location.

 The best resource for any further information and/or discussion on Australian e-tailers is http://www.dvdplaza.com.au (Registration is req’d). All or almost all of the e-tailers have representatives who participate in the forum; this site will let you compare prices among the different e-tailers. If you place your name on dvdplaza’s email mailing list or else check the main page of their website, you will be kept up-to-date on upcoming sales.

 
 Other places for discussion and/or further information on Australian e-tailers :
(a) (DVDTalk's) Australia DVD e-tailing questions

 
(b) "Suppliers Forum" over at http://www.thedvdforums.com/ (Registration req’d; also, there is a sub-forum for Family Box Office which has
a representative who answers questions there)

 
(c) "Regional DVD Area" over at the http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/index.php

 
 Bear in mind that all prices listed for items (and for shipping) at these e-tailers are in Australian dollars

 
 And prices for items at all the e-tailers include a 10% GST which will be deducted for all non-Australian customers during the process of purchasing your items (a quick way of figuring out the cost of an item without the 10%-GST is to divide the price by 1.10 )

 
 Some of the Australian e-tailers offer shipping by DHL. For further information, please click here

 Comments
 
 Out of all the e-tailers that you see listed, amazon.de is (to the best of my knowledge) the only e-tailer that has ever been named as an e-tailer in Germany that is known to ship internationally
 
 The consensus is that, unfortunately, it takes an average of (at least) about four to six weeks for an item to reach a destination in the U.S.
 
 Furthermore, if the item in which you are interested has a "FSK18"–rating, strict laws forbid most German e-tailers (including amazon.de) from selling it

 Comments
I had emailed a resident of South Africa about retailers there. He had this to say:
 
For people in SA, Kalahari are very good (although not the quickest).
Don’t know of any review sites, but not sure I’d believe the specs of a disc anyway (the covers are rarely correct).
Not one ever says "anamorphic" or "enhanced for widescreen", although the ones I’ve purchased do seem to be (just luck I guess). Most discs are produced locally by nu-metro (cinema company here).

 Comments
 
A few comments for the international customers :
 
VAT is an acronym for "Value Added Tax". The price that you will see for an item includes this tax. Some e-tailers (like amazon.co.uk) will remove this tax from the the cost of your purchase during the check-out process; the downside is that you will have to pay the cost of shipping.
 
With regard to those e-tailers that offer free shipping (or charge a nominal fee for shipping), again, the price that you will see for an item includes this tax. BUT the tax will NOT be removed during the check-out process. For the e-tailers, this covers their costs to ship the item

Price Comparison for Retailers in Denmark :

(I haven't had any time to explore what all this site offers. But after stumbling around, it appears as though you can proceed straightaway to price-comparing by clicking on "DVD-Film Region 2". Then, type in the name of the title for which you're looking beside "Søgeord", and then click on "Top 10" underneath "Info" to get a list of the 10 cheapest prices for that title.)

      or

      (Click on "dvd" to proceed to another page. Now, you can either proceed straightaway with price-comparing by simply typing in a title in the blank space or you can click on one of the commands. Here, with (rough) translations done by me with altavista, are what the commands will do:

      (Click on "Best Buy" to see "The current TOP good deals, whose price particularly deviates from the cut")
      (Click on "billig" to see a list of titles whose price lies between the two monetary values (from 0 to 75 EUR and from 5 to 80 EURO) which are adjustable by you)
      (Click on "preisrutsch" to see a list of the "price reductions [that] were found in the last 7 days")

Price Comparison for Retailers in Spain :
 
In 2002, this site used to have a price comparison feature. Currently, it appears that this feature has been removed. Since I don’t speak/read Spanish, I don’t know with certainty that it is gone – I mean, maybe it is located somewhere else in the site. Anyways, if it has been removed and then later on is reinstated, then perhaps someone will let me know, and then I will update this section.

"You can use a program like DVDSubber. It will overlay fan-made subtitles while watching the DVD on your computer. [...] The timing on the subtitles is a little off (1-2 seconds). Perhaps it was my inexperience in using the program, but the timing might be fixed with a little tweaking."

You were not sure about international shipping for some retailers and I can pretend to know spanish and portuguese so...


Chile:
http://www.asuoficina.cl/

No mention of international shipping

http://www.bazarvirtual.cl/

No mention of international shipping

http://www.dvdmagico.com/chile/index.htm

International Shipping


Portugal


non-English Interface :

http://www.fnac.pt

international shipping

http://www.maugenio.com/

international shipping

http://www.worten.pt or http://www.worten.pt/worten/main/home.jsp

only mentions shipping for Portugal and it's territories


also, Venezuela:

http://www.patilla.com or http://www.patilla.com/index/p_home.asp

(It IS a retailer in Venezuela, right?) (As of 08/17/2002, I looked around and could not find any dvds)

http://ww2.patilla.com/site/indice/p...p?id_categ=586 but there are no items there, so yes and no

it doesn't mention international shipping

Hi Bill,

Thanks for maintaining this list. It's very helpful.

I just wanted to make a correction that Australian e-tailer Chaos.com does not ship outside Australia. I don't know if they did before.

Hey Pro-B: I've looked at DVD Hoelle and Amazon.de for Wild at Heart. I live one country away, in the Czech Republic. I've never seen that DVD here. Shipping to here from Amazon.de is ridiculous--€13!! I don't understand. HKFlix ships internationally for less than $3. Anyway, I can't find any shipping info on DVD Hoelle's website (my German is rusty but I can manage). Do you know any other reputable websites with reasonable shipping rates?

You could try these sites that are based in Holland as an alternative option:

www.amazon.at
www.dvdsales.be
www.dvdzone2.com
www.fame.nl
www.freerecordshop.com
www.freerecordshop.nl


Is there any reason why you HAVE to pick the German version...? YOu might want to consider some other European versions...The Scandinavian version (Danish/Norwegian) is identical to the German Universal disc....look here:
http://www.axelmusic.dk/productDetails/321590242012

...and it is on sale. Unless I am missing something in your post!

Thanks. Finally bothered to it. Ran a link check on all the links and removed those that no longer work. Wasn't fun but needed to be done.

For Taiwan retailers, you could add this site, which has an English interface:

http://mall.jsdvd.com

I've ordered from them a few times and have been happy with the experiences.
