probably (hopefully) this will have an obvious answer!

I've got a uk ebay account, but fancy buying some stuff from the US - how do i do it? do i have to set up a US account? trouble with this is I'll be a newbie without good feedback...

(realise that this should be in the FAQs section, but that's locked at the moment for new topics, moderators only?!)

You can just bid on an US item. If shipping is international, no problem. When he doens't say anything, just ask. If he states: "NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING"
The answer will be a simpel: NO!!
I've got a german account and I bid world wide.

Or you could find some cool Yank to do the bidding for you. :D

update-I just logged on to the UK and German ebay sites to see if my US account works and it does so you should be able to use yours on any ebay account and not have to worry about feedback issues. Just make sure they will ship international and you should have no problems.
