I understand that it would be a pain with transatlantic shipping entirely, but people don't do as they wish relating to laws.
You are perfectly in right to ask for a refund/new item if it is delivered smashed, and if the seller refuses to comply, the fact that he's in the US wont protect him from a credit card charge back, up to the dealer to deal with the angry VISA guys afterwards. Since VISA cards insurances covert that kind of things in most contracts.
I don't believe VISA will cover uninsured transcontinental shipping, when the seller expressly states that he won't take international returns.
