I wrote the address to the US shipping address so I don't want to be held on a technicality. Quite honestly, I never knew there were companies that accepted mail and fwd to other countries before until now.
Ah, I missed that. Yeah, that's important because that's the info that the forwarder uses to determine where to send the package, because many clients share the same address.
E.g., all of the expats in my company share a single PO Box. The account number is then used by the forwarder to tie the package to a new address to which it should be sent.
It would probably take a trivial amount of effort for the forwarder to work out where to send it, but reaching out to them is a good idea. And it will be easier for you to do so because of the time differences between the forwarder and NZ.

While he is of course under no obligation to ensure safe delivery from the forwarder to NZ, I believe this one is on him since he decided to start snipping away at the buyer's posted paypal address. It's like shipping to a hotel, but deciding that you don't need to put down the room number...
Sorry k4, but i really think this one is your fault and it's not simply a "technicality."
This was the part I missed/misunderstood from the OP. In which case, I agree with VLSI that follow up is in order.

Was the US address you shipped to, the same address on the ebay/paypal shipping page, or did you edit it?
There are dozens of these companied on eBay. The ones I deal with the most are named "flight2(enter country abbreviation here). Most I've dealt with are located in California
See above. If the OP removed the part of the address that ties to the real forwarding address. I've definitely received stuff that only had the PO Box info and not my account number, it does require some effort on the part of the forwarder.
