    Hey guys,

    So recently I've been trying to buy parts off Newegg. Me being outside the US, they don't exactly ship to me.

    However, I've found a guy in CA that will send me stuff here so that's all good. Now what I'm currently doing is getting myusabox to buy the stuff for me but it means that I have to pay a 10% commission to them.

    So I want to figure out how to stop using them so I can buy stuff directly using my funds. I have a NZ paypal account, so I can't use that and I've also got a NZ credit card but they just declined since its a non-us credit card.

    So anyhow I've set up a US paypal account and verified it with the bank account trick that was posted on BHW a while back, but it got limited 3 days later.

    So I'm not sure what I should do. I can get a reusable VCC but I'm going to end up paying for lots of fee's and what not.

    Is there anyone that sells US paypal accounts perhaps?

    Appreciate all help :)

    They would still have to ship oversea's and that would be the address. Even if you used a US paypal and it was shipping out of the united states they will probably just put it on hold. You would have to have someone ship it to you most likely
