Avoid for international deliveries

I bought a book through Alibris for delivery in Venezuela. The book was expected to arrive in 21-27 days. 45 days later and Alibris has no idea where the book is as they do not track items shipped outside the USA. Now I have to try to get the book and shipping costs refunded.
