Buying batteries for uk

Hi
I’m trying to buy a battery on GoPro plus offer to be shipped to uk and website is giving me a warning that due to IATA regulations I’m unable to.
I’ve only found info about New Zealand so is it a bug and if not - is there a way to get a battery on discounted price somehow?

Thanks

Re: Buying batteries for uk

Hi @kseniash

 

This can happen if you're shipping any 1 battery by itself and any camera plus 3 or more Rechargeable Batteries outside US. This is due to the IATA shipping regulations.

Unfortunately these restrictions are placed on us by the shipper and not something we can control. Alternatively, you can purchase this accessory at a local retailer.

 

Thanks!
Ej

Re: Buying batteries for uk

Ej you are missing the point here, I can buy from a local retailer but they won’t offer the 50% discount for being part of the ‘plus’ program. You advertise that by being part of the plus program I get 50% off some accessories but don’t advertise that you can’t get some of those accessories if you don’t live in the USA.

Appreciate that Ej
Could you clarify where is that stated and is it a new restriction? As I said, I can see that New Zealand has regulations but none of them explicitly mention UK.

Also, I’m joining to the enquiry above - what’s the point in advertising GoPro plus discounted batteries if you can’t actually ship them ?
