As a non-US resident I have for a number of years enjoyed the great service of myus.com In essence it is a proxy shopping service. I can order stuff from merchants that either don't ship abroad or charges a fortune to do so because of the bureaucrazy involved. It is also possible to have them pay for an item or an auction on ebay with their credit card and then bill me for the stuff. myus.com then sends the goods anywhere in the world with DHL or similar, making all customs declarations go smoothly.

Now something is screwing around with my credit card, though I can still use it here in Sweden, it seems to bounce when they tried it last time.

I don't think it's the great, service minded people at myus.com that are incompetent. I more think of this as an international money conspiracy of the evil credit card buissneses (tm).

So in order to startup a service like this I filled in something called a usps 1583, my guess is that this is so that they don't get the blame if I send something I shouldn't via their service.

A subscription is about $130 a year and I pay something like $10 to get the paperwork done, then there is a small charge for storage if I choose to delay my shippings more than a month.

Right now I feel it would be tremendously more easy to pay this with bitcoins than trying to call up my bank or sending them an international wire-transfer (which usually ends up costing about twice as much as the actual services I pay for :-)

disclaimer: I do not work for myus.com nor do I promote them in any way other than as a private individual blablabla... etc.

This is exactly what bitcoin needs. If you need some startup funds use http://glbse.com to issue some shares and I think people would support it.

That, or convince myus.com to accept bitcoins.  Either way, you win, bitcoin wins.

As we slide down the banister of life, this is just another splinter in our ass.

I have been considering using such a service to order my next laptop on
http://www.system76.com

You could have someone in the US make the dollar payment in exchange for bitcoins in the meantime?

I'm not a us resident so I can't do this myself, but I think there is a demand for it, myus is obviously expanding right now.

I solved this whole stupidity with a pre-paid master card btw.

After 2.5 years, your solution has arrived.

You want to buy U.S.-only products with Bitcoin.
You need a U.S. address and/or credit card to do so.
Coinsfer.com can help.


There are services that help you buy U.S.-only products. There are services that help you buy products with Bitcoin. Now there is a service that does both!

There are many large U.S. retailers which will only ship to the U.S. Many of them also require a U.S. credit card. But you don't live in the U.S. or have a U.S. credit card, and you want to buy with Bitcoin. That's where we come in.

How It Works
  •     You send us your email and links to products you wish to buy
  •     We calculate the cost of your order, including shipping to your door, and then email you an itemized payment link showing each cost
  •     You complete your order, including your shipping address, via a secure Coinbase payment page (none of this information is ever stored on our website)
  •     We pay for your order, it ships to our U.S. address, then we complete the customs declaration and ship it to you - providing tracking info all the way
  •     You love our service so much you come back for more, and the cycle repeats!

We have tried to answer any questions on our FAQ page. If you have one not listed, please post here or contact us.

First customer pays no Coinsfer.com tip in exchange for a quick review here!

We believe in the power of Bitcoin to transform international commerce. Let's do it!

Coinsfer.com is a venture of Infinite Schema LLC – a Florida, U.S.-based company.
