Buying from Aquabid (overseas)?

Can someone explain to me how this works? I have my eye on a betta from Thailand which is ending tomorrow morning, but I'm a little confused about the technicalities because the seller's description isn't entirely clear.

Do I buy the fish first, and contact the transshipper after the auction? What do I say to them?

Also, the seller doesn't specify how much shipping is and whether or not I pay them, or the transshipper..

If anyone could help me (possibly quickly), that would be very much appreciated. =)

post a link to the auction (to be clear on what the seller wants)

as long as you have paypal everything should go smoothly. i put a bid on one the other day from thailand also, and won the auction. i recieved an email from the seller with his paypal address and the price. i payed him and sent him an email back telling him payment was sent. he replied, letting me know who the transhipper would be and gave me her email & phone number. i called the transhipper (who was really nice & very knowledgable) and then sent the transhipper payment to her. so now i have to wait till the seller of the fish has enough fish to ship to make it worth the money. the more he ships at once the cheaper it is on him. my transhipper said that she sends out the fish she receives according to who pays her first. so quick payment was a must. other than that i'm just waiting for my fish to come in. hope this helps!

That is super helpful! I didn't know that they ship out so many fish at once, but it does make sense now that I think about it. Thank you so much. =)

Oh by the way here's the link:

Cool! I assume it's best to contact the shipper closest to you. That means I'll be contacting Jennifer Vivieros in Georgia! And thank you very much, I thought he was beautiful too..I love yellow. =)

Okay so I bought and paid for my first overseas betta! I'm excited. However the only email I have gotten so far from the seller is the one telling me to pay, so I'm waiting to hear back to make sure they got my payment okay. :)
