A friend of mine wants to bid on a TSR Battle of Five Armies game on sale on EBay, but seller doesn't ship outside US. Is there any nice soul willing to receive the game (assuming I win it) and send it to me?

I have had some problems with sellers not willing to ship outside US, but their problem was not really about shipping. It was about foreign PayPal. A seller once told me that he couldn't accept PayPal from outside US because he did not have any insurance (I don't know what he meant exactly).

Thanks a lot. Unfortunately I wasn't able to bid on the game because I wasn't in the store Sunday, but in the future I could really use your help. Thanks again!

With our obvious strength on both sides of the Atlantic, I'm starting to think that our "Acaeum Shipping Consortium" idea is gaining some momentum. We talked about it on this thread.

If the idea remains popular — and if it seems to work — I'm wondering if some sort of "cross-ocean shipping" sticky thread might be worth the effort? Obviously, that would have to come from Foul, but it might be worth considering.

Only problem is announcing an auction you want, then maybe loosing out.
Now if the system was in place, then people could bid on items and post them for needing shipping assistance - that would be a great service (I've a friend in England that has helped me before)
Same method can be said for those who can take different payments (different curracies, checks, money orders, etc)..would really help people out.

Paypal is much more popular over here than it was even a year ago - but even so there are still a few sellers only accepting personal cheques.  I don't mind sending a cheque on behalf of an Acaeum reg.

*nod* alright, course it'll probably be something you'd be interested in as well. I only had to use the English check requirment twice in the various auctions I've bid on. Still good to know people are out there.

Hi All,

I'm looking for someone in the US to help me complete some auctions I won.

The seller is Robert Jennings (Massconfusion), but he'll only accept a US cheque or money orders. So I'm looking for someone wh can write a cheque for $120 and post it to Mr Jennings, after I send them money through PayPal.

I will of course cover the PayPal fees, postage and any other expenses.

Any help would be most gratefully accepted.

Faithfully,
Ian

Personal check fine for this?
Also is he going to send the items to you or send it to the one in the US, which then has to send it to you?

Hi Shane,

They'll be posted straight to the UK. I just need a relay for the funds. I'll PM you.
