What began as the web equivalent of a local garage sale is now an international bazaar. On eBay Canada, shoppers will find everything from digital cameras to craft supplies to vintage Airstream trailers. Merchandise for sale includes used items, vintage collectables, antiques and new goods in MIB (mint in box) condition. Theres also a brisk business in items like airline tickets, travel accommodations and coupons.
For Canadians, this site has a lot to offer. It vastly expands the range of items and prices to choose from and usually results in a bargain, even when shipping fees are taken into consideration. Buyers can quickly search thousands of items by keyword or browse in dozens of well-described categories and subcategories.
For collectors and those in search of hard-to-find merchandise, eBay eliminates the drudgery of searching the shops and coming up empty handed. The reverse is also true: Canadians with items to sell access a far wider pool of interested customers, ensuring a top dollar price. Another plus to this worldwide market is the sites automatic currency converter. When a seller in China lists the price it appears on eBay Canada in Canadian dollars and vice versa. Payment is easy, especially when using eBays sister site, PayPal, and disputes are settled with the help of a resolution team.
