I am afraid that doing business internationally -- especially for a small
software company -- is *phenomenally* expensive. For this reason, we try
to encourage people outside the US to contact our international resellers
instead of us directly (we have three in the U.K., for example). They can
generally offer faster service and better prices, and they will take orders
in non-American currency (prefer to do so, I suspect). And they can often
beat our prices. Believe me I WISH we could offer better/faster/cheaper
A list of our international resellers is available on our WWW site at

contact us directly at info at camsci.com
I hope this is helpful!
