How can I order from marketplace from a seller who doesnt ship to the USA?

I found the perfect gift for my husband and can only find it on After muddling through the checkout, I realized the seller won't ship it to the USA.
Do you know of a reputable mail forwarder or something who I can ship it to and then they will ship to me?

Dont know about mail forwarders; but in case you dont find any:

-Is this an individual?: It may be worthwhile writing to the seller letting him/her know that a) you are willing to pay for a bit more (assuming that is viable) and/or how important this is for you. Sometime people will do the unexpected. If you choose to write - you'll definitely want to try to provide a French translation in your mail - however garbled (

-I have had good responses on France specific questions in Fodor's travel forum

Good luck.

You could post a request with some nominal payment for services to Jobs with the hope that a France living Mefite would be able to assist.

As TheRaven's comment suggests, if you let us know what it is you found (book or something else?), we could recommend better options than Amazon France that probably do ship overseas.

Response by poster: Since the book is a gift for my husband who is also a mefite, I will PM those interested the title.

It is on Priceminister, but at about 100€ more.
