You have to pick a trans-shipper, they should have them listed in the auction. (If the fish is out of the country of course)

First you pay the seller the cost of the fish plus $5 for shipping.
Then you email the seller telling them which transhipper you want the fish sent to.
Then you meial the transhipper to let them know that you're having a fish sent to them and that you need to know how much you own them for the importing fees and shipping. Once you have an amount and a Paypal address, you send the payment to the transhipper and wait for your fish.
Fish are sent from Thailand every Sunday but some sellers send every 2 weeks. After that the transhipper will take 1-2 days to ship the fish to you after she/he received it.

Paypal will work. (I thought you had to be 18 or over to get a Paypal account).

Wow what a beautiful (and slightly creepy) betta! Best of luck with the aquabid thing...once I get my new tank up and running, I plan on perhaps buying a fish off there as well.
