I've been looking into options like this (freight forwarding).If you need a international shipping source for connectors and such. that is super fast, I would suggest www.DigiKey.com
They are not the cheapest, but have huge inventory and often ship same day. They even have an app for searching and ordering.
But, if you order in low quantity you might end up paying more for your finished cable than an ALP original - if you don't need a custom length.
Coincidentally, AL priority official website (not the USA one, but Croatia) they do not list the CPU to sensor cable as available.
Seems usa are the only country to have them listed online for purchase.
I already know they won't ship internationally (USA... Croatia will but the parts not listed available there). Out of curiosity I contacted them to see if they would take an overseas card payment with usa shipping. PayPal is available on Al priority usa.
Been 48hours and still waiting. If not... Well.... That makes this thread more worthwhile.
Ontop of all this I booted a few emails out to see if one could be sourced locally. I'm still waiting to hear back after 5days.
Regardless of availability, I'm really testing the downtime if a cable breaks, specifically the CPU to sensor. Everything else seems to be available if you just throw money at it.
I have also confirmed that buying a new sensor, gets you the CPU to sensor cable included. My argument is why should a person fork out hundreds on a sensor just for the cable? That actually sucks! Especially when it's sitting online in usa for $30.
So... Arriving back full circle to where we started, correct, freight forwarding at this stage seems to be the current way around it.
If you buy the spares, and know how to make the cable, you'll get yourself out of trouble quicker in my opinion.
Happy to give benefit of the doubt too. If anyone can find somewhere online with the cable and price attached, with international shipping, point it out for everyone. Maybe I missed it somewhere.
ALPriorityusa.com state - We accept money orders, cashier’s checks, personal checks, and company checks in U.S. Dollars only.
We accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. There is no surcharge for using your credit card to make purchases.
PayPal not stated but when you checkout it's there.
I did find a freight forwarding service that will make the purchase for you in usa, ship to a USA address and then ship back out internationally. Alternatively you place an order, ship it to them and they handle it from there. So that's a good option.
If someone orders 2 cables with shipping to a USA address it's close to $80usd then be paying shipping again to their country of choice.
