    hey,
    i have heard of a website, that connects people who want to buy something in a foreign country and the people, who are currently in this foreign country.
    so u sent the order and the money to them or the website and they go shopping and bringing it to the post office for a little fee.

    has anyone heard of this website or service?

    Thx in advance

    Yes, I have (not heard, but read-amounts to the same), but that was strictly and only for the USA-who else, of course. Buy on e-bay or amazon or the like and send it to you as ''private'' as otherwise as bisnis the EU-customs would leave much more import-duty (might also be different for all 28 countries-and as usual the UK is the odd man out in that game), also th fees for sending from e-bay etc are much higher as a private can do for.
    I follow some local-country/language websites for expats living in TH and never ever was this raised-but much more for the other way-i.e. sending things missed from the mothercountry to TH. I guess fora like thaivisa would be more fruitful for this type of Qs, and you can keep silent if you dont have the required TH-GF (yet).
