International Shipping without using a Fulfillment Center

If you have a small number of international orders, what are the challenges of shipping without using a fulfillment center. It appears there are three hurdles: the cost of shipping, possible import tariffs, and VAT tax.

It looks like many countries have an exclusion on VAT tax - if your revenues are below a certain amount in that country, you don't have to register or pay VAT to that country.

So my question is - can we just ship directly to the consumer in these countries and let them handle the VAT and import tariffs, as long as we are below the VAT exclusion amount for that country?
