    I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a model railroad shop that accepts paypal and can ship to the Philippines. We're a bit wary in giving our credit card numbers, and PayPal is much more acceptable to us.

    I'm sorry that I couldn't find this on my own. I'm not an expert on this hobby. :oops: It's probably good that I ask you guys here who are well versed into the hobby. When buying items, we all want them acquired in good condition. Sadly, there are people out there who want to dupe us.

    Yes, ebay is attractive. :) I'm just wondering if there are hobby shops that accept Paypal. But I guess Ebay is the best option.

    Modeltrainstuff.com (MB Klein) ships international and they accept major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover....

    Paris Junction Hobbies will. And since they're in Canada, and the Canadian dollar is trading at about $0.80 American, you effectively get a 20% discount over buying from shops in the US.

    I believe they take PayPal, as well as major credit cards.

    You are correct Squid we (Paris Junction Hobbies) do have a paypal account and we can ship to pretty much anywhere in the world as long as the recipient is willing to pay shipping costs.
