    Is there a way to indicate or request ad posters to state the Country they are selling from ?

    Many times I see an item listed that piques my interest but there is no indication of where the selling item is being sold from (neither in the sellers profile location, nor stated in the thread), although at least 'some' are stating CONUS.

    I'll only buy from a Canadian member (for our shitty dollar's sake, shipping, and custom's hassle), and I find it rather frustrating and often disappointing to have to pm about an item to find out it's an item being sold from the UK or USA and/or that they also don't want to ship out of country even if I wanted it.

    So, is there a way to index the listings ? or at least make it part of the rules to list the country it's being sold from in the description (for those hiding their profile location) ?

    I've been thinking about that too lately. I've seen a lot of posts that just list price with no currency (what kind of dollars?), shipping included (to where?) and no mention of where it's shipping from. Usually you can assume they're Americans but it an international community here and maybe we can do it a bit better. Maybe we could require a simple "Shipping From country X" / "Willing to ship to Countries X and Y" and "desired currency" in each for sale post.
