As of July 20, OGourmet has been accepting orders to be delivered to any address within the territory of the United States. This might seem to be a simple affair, but it in fact required very significant efforts to modify our on-line transaction systems to meet the requirements of U.S. federal authorities.
But the results are impressive! As soon as the system is informed that a client wishes to send an order to the United States, only products that can be shipped to the USA are displayed, and prices are automatically adjusted to include any applicable custom fees. As simple as that!
To meet the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA Prior Notice) and U.S. Customs, all documents are created in real time, without any additional intervention from the client.
For the moment, shipments are made via Canada Post and the United States Postal Service. In a few months, other courier services will be added.
