    Because I just saved up $10 from FMA. When I got to the checkout, it told me "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination. You may either change the shipping address or delete the item from your order." I don't know what to do, because I put in my correct address. In address I put my street then my suburb, then I put in my city, then in the next box my state.
    In zip, I put in my post code (4 letters), then my country and phone number. Anyone know what I did wrong? Thanks in advance.

    Amazon has export restrictions on specific items, even if they'll happily send other stuff to your country. Movies for example, often won't be exported due to countries having different release dates. It depends on what you tried to buy.

    I tried to buy a game that came put roughly 1-2 years ago. I live in Australia, but I don't live in the middle of nowhere. So I'm not sure why it doesnt recognise where I live.

    Australia has some pretty ridiculous restrictions for games, as I'm sure you're aware more than anyone. At a guess, it's an R18 title?

    Lol, in Australia there's no such thing as R18 titles in Australia. The game I was trying to get was star wars the force unleashed 2. If I try with any other game, I'm sure the same will happen.
