I want to purchase some goods from a US merchant.  The good are not illegal but they are on the paypal shitlist so he can't use them.  His current options are western union, moneygram etc...

If I'm going to pay $20 for a WU money order and deal with the delay of sending it to him and him having to cash it, I'd much rather pay a premium to cover his currency risk and pay in bitcoins.  But it seems a good opportunity to upsell him in accepting bitcoins as a normal payment method.

Now this guy has never heard of bitcoins and probably has little interest in them beyond the ability to accept foreign payments quickly.  So what I imagine he would want from a solution would something like this:

He provides a bitcoin address for payment, the solution calculates bitcoin value based on exchange rate + small risk premium, once bitcoin is received it's immediately put on market and converted to USD.

Is there a merchant solution that does all this?  Particularly the last part as his key interest will be fast cross border payments into USD.

yep, he can do like this.

you send him btc, then he sells btc on mtgox, he will have mtgox usd.

then he makes a offre on exchanger service(higner fee,like aurumxchange.com) or on this forum(free fee, some buyers can do sepa/bank wire,if they are trusted,then no risk)

Look into both bit-pay.com and btcinch.com, they both seem to do what the merchant is looking for.
