Like to buy something on Ebay from the US...

Postby Multiwizard » Sun Dec 10, 2017 10:28 am

Hi,

in short... 8)

I like to buy something small and cheap from Ebay in the USA, but the seller doesn't ship to the Netherlands :cry: , so,,,

is there someone in the US able and willing to buy this Item for me and then ship it to the Netherlands? [-o<

I understand I have to pay for the shipment twice... :mrgreen:

If someone does, please pm me for further details... 8)

Thanks in advance... O:)


Greetings, Wim... :-)

Hey Wim,

Sorry this doesn't help you but I just got back from a work trip to the US a few days ago. I don't go as often as I used to but happy to hand carry small items back to the UK next time. I will give you a PM when I get notice of another trip.

Cheers,
Kieran

Hi,

ok, sadly it didn't work out... :(

It is not going to a shop in the US and buy it... [-X

It's an item ($25) online on Ebay, so I do need to find a me volunteer [-o< who really lives in the US and buy this item so he/she can post it further on to me in the Netherlands... :D

So any volunteers?, one is enough... 8)

Doesn't E-bay's much vaunted "global shipping programme" help?

Not if the seller does not want to use it or does not want to ship overseas.

Wim, by the way, what are you after?

It may help if members in the USA know what it is you want.

Hi Ian,

I advised him about the, "global shipping programme" but he doesn't respond to that... :-(

Hi Mark,

a portable tape-recorder, it weights about 1kg, 26x7x16 (LxBxH)... :D

It's the exact same one I (had and) used in the 80's to load all my Atom programs... 8)

I'll be back in the US, in the New Year. I might be able to help then. But the pricing for postage may end up more than the cost of the item!

If he is relisting this Item I hope to contact you again if I may... [-o<

I know the shipping will be more than the cost of the Item... 8)

Again thanks for your willingness... :D
