    My family produces grade one Saffron of the world (Persian Qaenat Saffron) and Iran's government has recently removed taxes for saffron export... and based on my calculations, I would profit a lot if I could sell it in the US or UK...

    Is there anyway for me to do it beside Ebay or Amazon because those sites don't support my country and I have no experience how to sell anything on Amazon or Ebay...

    Can I just post the package to my partner?

    I guess if you posted to someone here or allowed someone to sell on your behalf, that would work.

    Post it? Will my JV or I have to pay tax for importing? Or no, it's as simple as posting a package like a birthday gift? is it legal to send saffron like that?

    the customer pays the tax and shipping
    Mostly though if you include shiping you sell a lot more

    You do the shipping from Iran to the customer

    I would JV....unless taxes are insane, but I have never researched taxes as all imports I receive are "gifts". I can post up in the US and deliver just shoot me a message and we can talk.

    Unless I am mistaken there are still sanctions in place preventing business with Iran from the EU or USA.

    You might want to check that out as it could prevent you shipping anything.

    For example: a sanction of no financial transactions taking place between Iran and EU banks was implemented in 2012, I don't know if that has been lifted yet, so how would you get payment?

    See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-15983302

    I have a number of Iranian friends and they just left the country to do business.

    The Sanctions on Saffron has been removed by US (it was in the news here)
    and there are companies who transfer money from US to Iran by some middle country...it's so common to do that here in Iran...and there are some other ways anyway it's no problem....
