Download is always a good solution. However, he might suffer from low

I guessed that's the case, since he has asked on this list to have the
CD shipped there.
Of course there exist vendors which only charge the shipment fee and
nothing else. Ex: www.kishlug.ir (I refused to mention it last time just
to avoid advertisement on the list!)
