Hi Karen. I was just trying to do an order and there seems to be only a U.S. option. Am I missing something or can non U.S. citizens even order.

Hi Colina,

Are you talking about placing an order with The Fruit Company? If you are, I'm not sure but I suspect you are correct and they probably only ship orders within the United States, but I can check for you. I just need to be sure that's what you are referring to.

 No it was'nt from the Fruit Company it was from Best Buy and a few of the other ones I tried. Thank you for looking at this.

At the end of this month we are going to be taking down the portal. For those of you awesome supporters who remember to go there first before shopping online I have an alternative for you. Just go to and click on the shopping tab. They have many of the same stores there and many others. By using the shopping tab there you will still be able to have a portion of your purchase come to ETP and support this website and research for new treatments for epilepsy.

In the near future you'll even be able to just download an icon into your browser so that you can go directly to your store and it will automatically do it through the Goodsearch portal without the xtra step. So keep your eyes open for this great option.

It's going to be hard for some of us if the website only provides merchandise for the US citizens. I've been doing my shopping in Hong Kong until now, although I'm from USA, due to the fact that I found some cheap things there. I will try to help your online service, so you can expand. I hope it will help.
