Great info as usual MrV!

Mo, you're forgetting the usual $5 shipping the seller charges and the cost of the box that most transhippers will charge additional to shipping.
It adds up soooo quickly.

I buy from Thailand all the time and I use Jennifer as my transhipper, have never had a problem before, it does get a bit expensive but if your looking for a certain color or form, its the place to go

Thumbs up Buying your Betta from Thailand

I recently ordered a red salamander big ears HM from Bettaakapes.com. My transhipper was Linda Olson. The seller is very customer oriented and answered ALL my questions and concerns. Ms. Linda Olson also very informative and customer oriented. My fish was shipped to Puerto Rico and was delayed a few days. Contacted Linda Olson and Seller they both and I initiated our concerned with the post office. The little guy finally came in 7 days later. He is alive, he became very rapidly oriented in his new 5 gallon mansion with all the amenities possible. Very strong and healthy fellow. Has not shown any signs of stress or discomfort. It was a very pleaseant experience with Bettaakapes.com and Linda Olson. Thanks.

I just sort of accidentally bid and won a fish on AB. He is a giant, marble butterfly HM. Gorgeous fish, and I want him so badly! He comes from Georgia, USA, (and i cannot wait to have a giant that actually builds nests). I didnt actually expect my super low bid to win, but I am now no longer an AB newbie! LOL!

Thanks. i was just going to ask about this when i found this thread. You say you have heard nothing about Kevin. He is in New York, as am I. do you feel it would be better to go "local" or select a transhipper who is known to be reputable? I did email him and he will let you pick up but he lives across the state from me and would cost a lot more than 35$ for me to drive there and back.

So how does it work? If you bought the fish from Thailand you pay the shipping fee and then the fish is shipped to the closest area say like Miami. Then the transhipper in that area receives the fish from Miami and then ships the fish to you in your area or do you have to pick it up?
