Currency Conversion

When purchasing items internationally, you must pay sellers in the currency that they specify, although if they accept PayPal payments, you may be able to send a payment in your own currency. You can check this on the item description or email the seller by clicking on the 'Ask seller a question' link.

N.B. Rates are not verified as accurate, and actual rates may vary.

Clothing Size Conversion

Buying clothing or shoes from overseas can often be tricky as sizes can vary. The size comparison guide will help you find out which international size is closest or most comparable to the Australian size you normally wear.

This is only a guide and we recommend that you get more information from the seller, including measurements, before bidding or buying.

Tips & Tricks



The safest way to pay international sellers quickly is by using PayPal or an international money order (available at most banks). Never use Western Union for eBay payment methods.
