You can't place your order direcltly at this site. You have a choice to find the same item on ebay.com, aliexpress.com or another shop (link above) or to use services like mistertao.com or similar ones.

This seller has many selling sites that caters to international customers:

TaoBao Products:Spanish - MisterTao.com

The ES9018 DAC is a reasonable $165, but after adding cheapest shipping ($28) and fee ($16), it is not cheap anymore.

There are better price for ES9018 based DAC at Hifiwow.com.

I couldn't get your link to work but I saw the same product also here with detailed pictures of the layout, although it's a bit expensive 470$ !?
I'm curious what is able to achieve with that extra software control

China Wholesale - The Costa De DAC-X10 Soft control ES9018 balanced decoder XMOS programs USB support 384K - 474.05 - China service

if you click on "description" you will find detailed pictures with the layout
