I recently lost out on an item being sold in the USA through goofbid.  Even though I was the highest bidder it told me I had lost the item due to not meeting the required criteria as this was a USA only item. 

I have the same problem and want to know how I can win it through Goofbid or if I bid on the live auction will I still loose the item?

Thanks

You will win any item in which you are the high bidder  if the seller ships to the UK.

It is up to you to make sure that the seller does ship to your country before bidding.

If the seller will not ship to the UK you should not bid, Goofbid or not.

Of course you can't bid on an item if the listing doesn't have shipping to the UK, no matter if you manually bid or not.
