"Overseas" Paypal rejected by Archie McPhee

I found some fun stuff for my nieces in Oregon for Christmas at Archie McPhee, which I heard about at meFi. But I was bummed when I tried to check out and they rejected Visa and even PayPal because I live overseas. Is there a way around this?

I'm used to the cc rejection, but PayPal I thought was just one big happy family. They made me switch to PayPal Japan a couple years ago, but everything works the same, and it's for domestic delivery. Anyway, is there some smarter way to set up PayPal to avoid this? Once I showed my wife the pickle toothpaste, cupcake lip balm and sassy magic 8-ball, it seems like nothing else will do.
