Does anyone know of anyone offering a buying and shipping service for items
on the German eBay?
There's an item I need but the buyer doesn't want to send to the UK.

Did the *seller* mention why he's not shipping to the UK?

No, he doesn't appear to speak English so didn't get into a discussion with
him.
I asked in English and got no reply so sent the same question again after a
Google translation and he just said "Versand nur Deutschland" (Shipping only
Germany)

So use google translator, send him a nice message and then put his
reply back in. That would be a lot easier and respected by others.
That's almost as bad as someone asking you something in a foreign
language - no wonder he was confused. Make the effort and it will
get you a lot further.
