Selling internationally

Making your listings available internationally is easy and can help you grow your business by getting items in front of buyers worldwide.

When you offer international postage in your listings, your items are available automatically to buyers outside Australia. With no additional fees, you'll benefit from millions of potential buyers.

How to sell internationally

You can make your listings available worldwide, or just to buyers in certain countries – simply add international postage options to your listings. International buyers will be able to see that while your location is Australia, postage is available to their country.

Here's how to add international postage to your listings:

  1. On your listing, choose Show international services and options and select Save.
  2. Choose Flat Rate or Calculated. A flat rate means you choose a postage cost. Calculated postage is determined by the buyer's location using Australia Post pricing.
  3. Select the countries you'll post to from Destination, and choose your preferred postage carrier from Service.

If you want to sell overseas, your listings and transactions need to comply with laws in both your country and the buyer's.

See eBay's International trading policy for more information.

Be sure you to familiarise yourself with listing and buyer protection policies on the eBay sites you sell on.

Choosing regions

You can choose the countries you want to post to in different ways:

  • On an item-by-item basis: Whenever you list an item, select international postage locations on the listing form. You can choose Worldwide, or select particular regions or countries.
  • As a standard rule: You can specify locations you don't post to in Postage preferences under Site preferences in My eBay. These rules will apply to any future listings you create.

International buyers will be able to see that your location is Australia, but that you'll post to their country.
