“Canadians need to be patient, because orders can only come from within the United States.”
Says the article in The Toronto Star .
I know that one can possibly, order through eBay, Amazon, and others of that ilk.
But it seems to me that there is a niche here for a Canadian entrepreneur to serve Canadians with a secure set of US addresses which would allow bleeding-edge technology Canadians to order by proxy.
Trust is involved, to be sure, but that’s true of any online business.
Imagine that you want to take advantage of the free CD, the latest camera, or what have you, but you are stymied by the “US-only” constraint.
You’d place your order, wait two weeks, (several months in the Star’s example) and take delivery of what you really want.
Beats driving across the border and prowling the malls in Buffalo, if you ask me.
And yes, this niche is a world-wide niche. People in Kenya, Australia, and India want these toys, too, and they want them NOW!
