eBay is one of the best known marketplaces in the world, and it is a global platform. Even in countries where eBay don’t have a dedicated country site, buyers still shop on eBay.
At Pentagon‘s Retail Without Borders conference in London, I spoke to Neil McLauchlan, Senior Manager – Global Shipping at eBay to find out more about how sellers can sell around the world.
There are three ways of selling overseas on eBay, one of which requires almost zero effort, one utilises your existing listings on your local eBay site and the third involves actively listing on overseas eBay sites. However you don’t have to pick one particular method – Neil explains how you may wish to actively list on say eBay France and eBay Germany in addition to eBay UK, but you could also add shipping to your eBay UK listings to other close European countries and still make use of eBay’s Global Shipping program to sell to countries you don’t want to ship to yourself.
