Aquabid Dilemma

Okay so this is my very first time purchasing anything from aquabid and I'm a little confused as how to proceed. I just paid for two lavender plakats to be shipped from Indonesia to Canada. I emailed the seller and he said that he can ship to Canada via Thailand so my next question is, is do I need a transshipper because he only has ones listed for the USA and I just want to know if he will ship the fish straight to me or if I need a middle man? This aqua bid stuff is so much more confusing than Ebay. And I did email the seller these questions as well, I'm just waiting for a reply. I just don't understand how a transshipper works. Can anyone fill me in? I would much appreciate it.

You need a transhipper. Contact your transhipper (should be listed on other auctions) to arrange everything. A transhipper has paper work to get hundreds of fish from international airports. They then sort, pack, and ship fish to the buyers.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
