eBay bidding question

OK..so i found a couple of items on eBAY...both from the same seller.. that i REALLY want.

BUT.. seller is in the USA (Utah) and in each item description says he will ONLY ship in the USA. However... it does not restrict me from bidding on the items.

So lets say.. i win the auction.. would you think the seller could change his mind and or is forced to ship to me? or would they 'negate' the sale?

I've sent the seller 3 messages now.. all with NO response. One i clearly said that I understand that shipping to Canada is more $$ and i was willing to spend it.

seller is definitely NOT a power seller.. maybe has less than 250 ratings albeit at 100%.

ideas? should I try and win the auction?

Just have it shipped to point Roberts or Blaine, check out TSB ship or point to point, there are lots of companies like these that allow Canadians to ship to them

if it requires a secure shipping address then you are SOL, otherwise you can do that ^^^. and if the seller is not responding to your messages DO NOT BID ON IT, it is unsure of whether he will ship it to you, it will cause too much hassle in getting your product and eBay will rule on the side of the seller in any dispute because it is clearly stated in the ad.

He would be forced to sell it to you. And you would be forced to buy it from him and provide a US address, as stated in the 'contract' (auction listing)

if he states in his auction shipping within US only, and you can't give him a US address to ship to, he doesn't have to sell to you.

talk to the seller first to make sure everyone's cool first. don't screw around with his listing if you can't fulfill the buyer's obligations.

also if he's ignoring you, probably a good indicator that you don't wanna buy from him. if things go south you don't want an unresponsive seller.

Yup, the seller can refuse to ship it to you or agree to ship it at his/her price meaning he/she could charge some crazy amount and it'll be up to you if you want to go through with the transaction or not.

if you want that first item you can ask him to relist and/or set buy it now on it so you can just buy it without having to possibly compete with someone for it.

make sure you know the shipping costs to canada up front first. you dont want to win the auction and then get tagged with a $xxxxx shipping quote and be like wtf

Yeah, get an actual shipping quote for Canada.

If it's too high for your liking, then you can get it shipped to Point Roberts or Blaine and pick it up from there.
