I'd just like to put this out and see what everyone thinks: Here in Thailand there's a very limited range of pipes available, and whatever pipes are available can be quite expensive. I'd definitely like to buy online, but that presents a problem for me: given my current salary, I don't qualify for a credit card here in Thailand. Also, most online shops and eBay sellers I've contacted won't accept Western Union Money Transfers or Money Grams, which are my prefered method of international payment. And those sellers that do accept...well, I've been lucky so far, but most of them have limited variety or don't look very reputable. So what I'd like to propose is this: If I want a pipe/tobacco, I'd like to be able to contact a member of the forum who has access to what I want, and I send them money via a Money Transfer of Money Gram. Of course the total amount sent would include the shipping fees, and I'm very willing to include reimbursment for transportation. The forum member then uses the money to buy and ship the pipe/tobacco to me. Would this sort of arrangement be acceptable? Everyone reading this: your thoughts?
