I've been buying some protein powder for a while. It's the only one I like. I can only get from the US (or Canada, actually), because food supplements are so heavily regulated it has not been exported yet and may never be. For the same reason the seller can't ship to me, so I've had a friend buy it and ship it to me.
The problem is that apparently UPS is getting more and more paranoid, and if we are to ship this perfectly innocent dietary supplement for personal use, now my friend has to fill out totally ridiculous forms for commercial shipping, with hundreds of nitty gritty details. And they may not even allow it anyway.
It seems the post office is similar in this respect.
This is such a silly problem. Any ideas how to handle this in an easy way?
