iLounger Thomas Rai has informed us that Apple Specialist MacConnection.com is now shipping iPod minis to the United Kingdom or other non U.S. addresses. We’ve called MacConncetion and spoke with a representative and they confirm that they will ship the iPod mini to any UK or other address. Apple is scheduled to release the iPod mini to worldwide markets in April, but for those who don’t want to wait can order through MacConnection. Contact MacConnection for shipping costs.

Editor’s note: According to reader’s comments, MacConnection stopped shipping iPod minis to international addresses at the request of Apple.

No accessories with my silver mini ipod order, though suprised Alan got his cheaper!
Dont forget the courier company will present you with an invoice for tax/duty on behalf of customs by post usually a couple of days later…

UK punters should know that you will be liable for UK Import Duty and VAT if you place an order.  Thomas Rai may find that DHL will bill him separately for this, plus add their admin. charge.  Import Duty is around 5% (varies on product) and VAT 17.5% - you need to add these to both the purchase price and shipping costs.  Based on a 20 dollar shipping price and 1.9 currency conversion rate this adds around 32 to total cost if my maths is OK!

If you are calling MacConnection from the UK or anywhere else you need to add the international code for american which is 001.

Full number: 001-603-355-6005

Okay let me clear it all up. I’ve just been on to Macconnection and they WERE shipping overseas - but they were not given permission to do so, and apparently apple called them up on it. So as of now they are not shipping ipods overseas. Drat, eh…

Just mailed MacConnections and they told me that they will not send any apple products outside the US.  Does this mean that apple have had a little word in there ear about exporting apple goods????????

Ipod Mini ‘Silver’

Is this the first ipod mini in the uk? does anyone know of anyone else with one in the Uk ?

There’s a few out there brought mainly from Ebay, but as far as I’m aware your the first from a US Mac dealer! - well done!

Pity Macconenctions topped selling the mini-ipods internationally, alot of disspointed people but not their fault. Not sure if those who got their orders accepted have now been cancelled automatically.

How did you manage to track you order, I got a order number thats it!

I just got an email form MacConnection tellinig me how to track my order.

Enter your order number and the First 5 digits of your post code Make sure the Letters are capitals. Mine has been shipped.

Have you recived a conformation email yet?

Alan: Well done on your ipod!

No email yet, and tried inputting the order number plus the postcode in capitals - no luck. Might give them a ring
