    I am presently looking at placing a bid on a item in the US. I am from Canada. Unfortunately this seller is determined only to ship to a USA address. I was wondering if anybody from the US would consider being a "middleman" for me in this sale so that I might bid.

    Kind Regards,

    If it's not something too large or of questionable legality, I can do it for you. I can't imagine why a US seller would have a problem shipping to Canada, if you're paying for it.

    Now you can figure out which is the cheapest, depending on where the seller is, since I'm on the East coast and Brian is on the West.

    I think many of the sellers that won't ship to Canada are UPS-only shippers. Cross border shipping with UPS is expensive and can be a hassle. Using the good old USPS is cheap and easy.
