I'm interested to see offers from United States only.

Each time I'm on a hunt for something, I have to open the filtering options
and select selector location United States.

Please make it possible to set a default filter for all searches. It should be
available here: https://www.bricklink.com/searchSettings.asp?viewFrom=P

This will improve the shopping experience immensely.

Thank you.

How to save these check boxes so they default? That is how I understood the
question.

You are right - missed that. Ignore my response.

If it would make that much difference, it sounds like you are constantly searching
US only. While I get that it is useful to filter on your own country some of
the time, are you sure that you never want to order something from sellers
in other countries? From what I understood US shipping is expensive, there are
no import duties (correct me if I'm wrong), you don't have to pay VAT,
so ordering abroad can get you some pretty good deals. You might be blocking
out a huge part of Bricklink that could have just what you are looking for.

   You might be blocking out a huge part of Bricklink that could have just what you are looking for.

I value predictable shipping prices and fast delivery. I don't know what
to expect when ordering from other countries. This is the biggest problem:

   Seller will calculate S&H fees and send and invoice with the final price for the order.

   Items will be reserved for you, and you will be obligated to purchase them.

There's no way I'm agreeing to pay an unknown amount of S&H when I don't
know what S&H actually is. I also don't want to send custom messages to sellers
and ask for pricing.

I don't want a hands-on experience in buying. I want an Amazon-like experience
where I know exactly how much and when I'm receiving my order. For this reason,
I always want to see US sellers only.

Go for the sellers with Instant Checkout. This is indicated by a lightning bolt
icon behind the store name. All added charges will be calculated realtime so
at checkout you see exactly what you will pay.

Normal sized orders from the NL to the US typically take 4 days to arrive. From
other countries it may be a bit longer, but anyway, a couple of days faster shipping
may not always outweigh the price difference.
