Using PayPal Internationally

eBay sellers have two options for selling internationally using PayPal. Both options allow your international buyers to pay for items using PayPal. With a PayPal Premier or Business account, you can accept credit card and bank account payments from buyers in over 190 different countries and regions worldwide, in several currencies.

Option 1: List your item as normal and select PayPal as an accepted payment option. The PayPal logo is displayed on the item listing page, and your buyer can pay immediately when the listing ends.

If your buyer's currency is supported, PayPal will automatically convert your buyer's payment into the right amount for your currency. For a complete list of supported currencies, see PayPal's Multiple Currencies list.

Option 2: List your item on any of eBay's international sites, then send a Money Request after the listing ends. Before using this option, please be aware of the following:

  • PayPal currently supports payments in multiple currencies including U.S. Dollars, Euros, Pounds Sterling, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, and Yen. For a complete list of supported currencies see PayPal's Multiple Currencies list. If you list your item in any of the PayPal supported currencies, your buyer can pay in that currency using PayPal. You can then convert the payment to U.S. Dollars in your PayPal account, if you wish.

  • If you list your item in a currency not supported by PayPal, you may convert the ending price to any PayPal-supported currency and request the payment from your buyer. eBay recommends that you disclose the conversion rate in your item description.

Important: To list an item on a different eBay site from which you initially registered, you may need to be PayPal Verified. For more information on listing on other sites, see About Selling Internationally.
