UK sellers on Ebay, read this!
Jan 17, 2013

I've been buying and selling cameras and lenses on Ebay for years. Most of the cameras I've bought and sold have been from or to the UK, a few to France and Germany.

What I can't understand is the number of sellers who stipulate UK only. Then I email them and ask them will they sell to Ireland. Not one has ever said no. Then they have to change their ads to allow a bid from Ireland. Once or twice there's a glitch in this and they and I lose out.

What is this obsession with sales to UK only? It's limiting your market and potentially reducing your final profit. I always stipulate that I will sell to the EU. It costs only slightly more to post to the EU. If you get paid by Paypal you'll get your money.
