Last I ordered from DWM--a couple years ago--they told me they had an 
'arrangement' with UPS and that's how their shipment came to me. UPS 
will hold your items hostage until you pay customs charges*; IIRC they 
will notify you by email and you can pay online with a CC.

* My last shipment was for about $2K worth of parts; depending on how 
it's described you could be on the hook for quite a bit more.
