I don't know why they think there is additional risk with
international shipments. Just send it with a signature required, and
it has exactly the same risk as any ordinary shipment in the US. But
a lot of vendors feel the same way.
If you are in Canada, you can have them ship to a forwarder who will
then ship it across the border for you. Of course, they add their
extra charge for the service.
If you are outside the US and would like to get a M12+, fluke.l
sells them for $35.00 plus shipping. See

I have dealt with fluke.l for many years. His stuff is of the very
highest quality and he checks it carefully before shipment. His
prices are a bit higher than some others, but other vendors may ship
you worthless junk like tool_nerd.
fluke.l has the lab equipment and experience to know what he is
doing and ships only the highest quality stuff. See his web store
for example of his lab setup.
But under no circumstance ever buy anything on eBay from tool_nerd.
They ship junk that has been badly abused. They failed to warn me
that I had to modify a FE-5680A Rubidium oscillator in order to get
access to the variable frequency output. Not only was this a large
amount of work to drill all the rivets out, it risked getting
shavings inside the unit when drilling the case for the coax. The
unit arrived with deep gouges in the cover, indicating it had been
treated very badly.
I told them I would not accept such crap, and wanted to send it back
for refund. They said OK, they would refund the entire amount when
it arrived. I sent it to the exact address they gave me, and they
refused to acknowledge receipt. In fact, they stopped replying to my
emails when it arrived. So I am out the $83.00 for the unit, plus
the $20.00 postage. It would have cost far too much to send it with
a signature required, but they convinced me they were very honest
and would honor the agreement.
I should have never wasted my time and money. Don't make the same
