Shopping in Spain in English in English Language

One of the easiest ways to translate the whole site to an English version is the web browser Google Chrome. It enables the technology of Google Translation services to make everything automatic. Just open up a page in a language that’s not your default and it will suggest you to convert the website from Spanish to English. Voila, you have an English version of eBay in your hands.

If your Spanish language skills are in need for a brush up, it might be a good opportunity as well. So just think about it!

About eBay in Spain

From all the European countries where the American auctions giant eBay has landed, Spain has probably been the slowest in its development. But it’s clear, that the situation is changing constantly and in a really big way as customers are catching up on the benefits of their service. The most fast adopted addition to the Spanish online shopping sphere has been Amazon Spain to which eBay is still loosing big time in terms of revenue.

Still the Spanish eBay already is and will increasingly be a great success story as no other company is able to come even close. And it already has been established as the meeting place of modern online sellers and auctioneers. Many great products with competitive pricing is already on their shelves by the thousandfold, bringing a long needed element of security along with it.


There is no other company that can match the services of eBay. But there is still a significant population that prefer “old-school” second hand websites. So there are a few in popular use. With little security and no review system it’s a choice for those who are in for the challenge (only in Spanish). Check out or of which the former is the most popular.

Another website worth mentioning, which in fact has been acquired by eBay itself. An old classifieds website founded in Barcelona known as which still has a bit of a buzz going on. Known for apartment rental ads in Spain but also has loads of used goods for sale.

Any questions? Let me know, I’m happy to help out!

  1. I’m sorry I must sound really stupid, I went into Google Chrome asked for but it all came up in Spanish, where you say “Just open up a page in a language that’s not your default and it will suggest you to convert the website from Spanish to English. Voila, you have an English version of eBay in your hands.” Can you give me a bit more info please. Thankyou

    • Not at all! This method applies to Google Chrome only. When using that browser, it should ask you if you want to have the page automatically translated after you open, it’s really that easy.

      It’s also possible with Mozilla Firefox browsers for example, but it requires the install of an add-on to have that feature. Chrome is the easiest.

  3. I want to buy my Grandson an electric sit on car ( Childs battery operated) there are loads on eBay the British site however there are many on the British site, however there are not many on the Spanish site has anyone got any ideas on how to buy a car on the British site and to get it to Lanzarote without it costing an absolute fortune. I have looked on the Spanish part of eBay and they are very few and far between, if there is a cheaper way of transporting it from the UK to Lanzarote I would be very grateful for the help or if anyone has an idea of how much it would cost as this is the only thing he has asked Father Christmas for and I don’t want to see him disappointed on Christmas Day.I would be very grateful if anyone has any idea of either a Spanish site that sells these and would deliver to Lanzarote or an English site that would deliver to Lanzarote at a reasonable rate. If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful and would make this little boys Christmas.
    Many thanks Chris
