Most Internet businesses don’t care about Sri Lanka. Most places don’t ship here, and they don’t tell you till the end of the process (or deep in their documentation). Amazon ships books, but not most other stuff. Apple doesn’t ship anything. It’s not physical, but services like Netflix or Rhapsody don’t even digitally send music here. It’s quite annoying.
Thus, I was surprised when I (randomly) visited Guitar Center and it immediately told me that they ship to Sri Lanka. First off, it’s quite smart to pick up my Sri Lankan IP and give me relevant information, and it’s thoughtful. I’m not actually buying anything from there, well, I guess I might look around.
I’m actually quite touched that they’ve implemented such a personal algorithm. So, thank you for giving a shit about the Sri Lankan consumer. I actually ran through and checked out a $110 guitar. The shipping cost is $112, so not great, but that’s still competitive with a normal Yamaha round here. I’m not buying either right now, but still, nice that they care.
