    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me out. There's an ebay auction I'm fighting fiercely in. The only thing is, even if I win, I won't be able to get the goods, because the seller refuses to mail it outside of the US. I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to receive the package for me, then redirect it to my Hong Kong address? Of course, I would pay for the shipping. Thanks.

    No direct help from me, I'm afraid but at home there is a company that specializes in just this thing. It's called shopusa.is and when completing an auction or on-line shopping, one just specifies their address in the US. When the deal is done, you submit the details to them on their webpage and they will accept the shipment and transport it home and take care of all duties. Perhaps you have a similar service in HK ?

    For online shopping, where the US retailer won't ship outside the US, or accept a non-US credit card, I've used American Goodies a few times. You go to their quote page, paste in the URL of what you want, and they get back to you in a day or two with the cost - you then pay via credit card and the item is shipped to their office. There are a couple of fees attached, but that's better than not having the items at all. I don't know if they do eBay goods, but it couldn't hurt to ask.
