Selling Your eBay Items in Other Countries
Listing your items internationally is a simple yet effective way of increasing your eBay sales. Just think of all those potential buyers and bidders you could be missing out on if you only list your items for sale on eBay UK.
Here's a quick guide on how to do it.
In the Sell Your Item page on eBay, scroll down to the International Postage section, which if you're listing for UK only should look like the picture above. Click on the drop menu and select 'Flat: Same cost to all buyers'. This then brings up your international posting options.
You then get the choice to list it Worldwide, or to choose Custom Locations. For arguments sake we will presume you're going to send the item by Airmail Small Packets, which is the most common option. Bear in mind that Airmail is split into zones, and countries outside the EU generally cost more to send to than countries in the EU, so it's probably worth putting one postage price for EU countries, and one postage price for none EU countries.

If you also want to sell to buyers in the USA, Canada, Asia, Australia and Japan but want to charge a bit more postage, click on 'Offer additional service' then choose 'Custom Location' again, and repeat the process above, this time ticking all the other boxes for countries you want to sell to. This will now show two postage options for your item, one for Europe and one for the other countries you have selected.
Once you've added this information into your listings, then in general, eBay users in other countries will see your items on their local eBay site. The main exception to this is that Buy It Now items won't show up on the US site (eBay.com) unless buyers specifically search for international options. So that's it, in just a few easy steps you can vastly increase your buying audience by offering your items on many different eBay sites.
