Using the eBay International Market
To use the eBay International Market:
Select the country where you live, or from which you want to shop.
Select the language you prefer.
Communicating with sellers
When communicating with the seller, remember that some phrases and terms may have different meanings in another language. If you don't speak the same language as the seller, consider using a free translation service on the Internet, such as Google Translate. Be sure to use simple, grammatically correct phrases to increase the chances of getting the correct translation. However, these translation tools may not be 100% accurate, and we can't guarantee their accuracy.
The close time for all listings will be in the time zone for the country you've selected.
In your search results, prices are shown in the country's local currency. Click the item you're interested in to see more details, including the current price both in the local currency and in the currency from where it is shipped. You can also use a currency converter.
PayPal is a safe, secure way to pay for your items and the preferred payment method for most eBay buyers and sellers. PayPal lets you send payments securely online using a credit card or bank account. When you send a payment using PayPal, the recipient won't ever see your credit card or bank account information.
Shipping and customs information
The cost of shipping to your location is usually listed in the item description. If the shipping cost isn't shown, contact the seller and ask about it. Buyers and sellers are responsible for meeting any customs and documentation requirements for shipping to another country.
You can minimize potential risks by following these suggestions:
Carefully review the seller's Feedback rating and comments.
Use PayPal as a payment method to minimize the risk of unauthorized use of your credit card or bank account.
