Halacha - Internet Purchasing motzei Shabbat
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Can a person living in Israel purchase merchandise from an American based online merchant while it is still shobbas in America on the chashash that a Jew might do work cfor you? Thank You

It is permitted because one may assume that the person one is buying from is from the majority of the population, which in the US is not Jewish.
