    Hi guys.
    There is these items I realy need on eBay.
    Auction ending in a few hours. Seller says US only and have not answered my request for shipping abroad.
    95 % of them do though.
    If negative response and I win, can anyone of you do me the favour of forwarding. A small box so there should not be that much hazzle.

    I'll send money up front for shipping of course.

    Thanks

  5. If you win,but BEFORE you pay,go into Ebay AND Paypal,
    and change you address to wherever your having the stuff sent in the US.

    Some paranoid people don't like shipping stuff to a different address than the winner's.
    They are affraid someone has highjacked your account to pay for the stuff,
    and then get it sent to their address. [​IMG]

    By changing your address,you can get around this problem. [​IMG]
    Then change it back when your finished. [​IMG]

    Hi Fellas

    Sorry to have bothered you.
    It worked out well. No shipping problem.

    THANKS A LOT !!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And thanks for the info/tip on adress change etc. I understand people can be afraid of such things. I have never been blown so far on the eBay. Maybe that's why I see these things as a practical problem and not something bigger.

    I'm very gratefull. I would return such a favour any day. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yep! I got burned for $138.00 for shipping to an address other than the one under the guy's name. [​IMG]
    Don.t ever do that.
     
  8. Before I understood how the system works,
    I asked a seller if they would ship their items an address different from mine,if I won.
    They said no way.

    I was prepared to bid easily over $10.00 for these items.
    But instead,they sold for the opening bid of 99 cents.
    At least they got paid.

    Now I don't even bother asking,
    I just change my name and address to suit where I want my purchases to go.
    As long as they get paid,and I get my stuff,everyone is happy.

    Ooops ...and how folish of me.

    Can you believe this? I had the alarmclock ring at 03.50 AM to bid on a couple of pearch bolts I realy wanted. Damn timezones. Got sniped by a very determined buyer.

    .... man that sucks. Had trouble sleeping afterwards, and that is not common for me.
    I've been kinda zoombisly at work today. I need treatment.
