    Hi all,
    I'm in New Zealand, and am wanting to purchase a remote control from the US, but most places are charging exorbitant amounts for postage (Like US$40 to send a remote!)
    I am after a One4All URC-8811 remote. It's an 8 in 1 jobby, and can be programmed via the computer using the JP1 cable etc.
    It is currently retailing for $24.99 at which is pretty reasonable - postage is around $6.75 to the continental states. There are other online shops around that may be a little cheaper - the cheapest I've found is around $27 including postage.
    I've asked around, and reckon it should be around $9 or so to post it via USPS to New Zealand. So that's around $40.00 all up to New Zealand.
    I'm wanting someone with a PayPal account to purchase the remote on my behalf and post it to me here in New Zealand. Paypal will allow me to pay you the postage without me incurring too many bank charges at my end for exchanging the relatively small quantity of US cash.
    I'll pay all costs etc. as long as they are reasonable!
    Please PM me, or post here if you can help.
