    Default Understanding international location

    So there is a seller who I know is good. I bought from him before and he has lots of good stuff and good rating. Sometimes price is a little high, but the location conflict is confusing for me. Could someone explain why one would have all products selling out of Eskilstuna, Sweden, but when you look at the persons profile they are in the Russian Federation?

    There are several reasons ranging from the integrity of the local postal service to export or import issues or being partnered with someone else.

    I seem to see this a lot with razor stuff is all and it seems to be the Russian Federation as the common link. I see a Russian seller and all shipping is free, only everything he sells ships out of China.

    It makes perfect sense to me that is you lived in an area with unreliable post or unreliable customs offices that you would move you goods out of that area and into a neighboring area that has inexpensive and reliable shipping. Global shipping costs out of China seem pretty inexpensive. I'm not sure about Sweden. I agree with you though it does seem like something is not quite right when you see it. If you are happy then don't sweat it.

    I bought a couple razors from this seller and was wondering as well. Maybe he is a frequent traveler, owns a shop, or has family in another country...dunno.

    Hes a rock star tho as far as ebay sellers go, I bought two very sweet Henckels from him had tracking within hours and were in my hands in TX in 5 days. He always has nice stuff, but yes prices can be up there on some.

    Yes his stuff is very nice. Even though his prices can be up there. I got my favorite razor and stone from him at very good prices for those two. He has been excellent to deal with.
    I think it has something to do with the Russian federation I just don't know what exactly. I will say the first time I bought from him I did not notice this and if I had I may have thought twice. I am glad I didn't though.
