I wrote this guide for online shopping on the localized version of eBay in Myanmar (Burma), about shipping and delivery, Myanmarese kyat, etc.
Click here for the eBay shopping site in Myanmar
Online shoppers in Yangon, Mandalay, Naypyidaw and elsewhere, or those who want to buy something and have it sent to Myanmar can use the “global eBay version”.
Even though there is no dedicated eBay.mm website, it detects your country location and serves a localized version with relevant search results when in Myanmar.
Also those outside the country, can shop there. Follow these instructions.
How eBay works in Myanmar
In or outside of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), you can use these tips to customize your online shopping experience. More on shipping below.
How to buy from Myanmarese eBay sellers;
An often overlooked choice is to shop among the many eBay sellers in Myanmar, for local, cheap and fast delivery of course. These are the steps.
Step 1. Enter the advanced search page on Myanmar eBay
Step 2. Fill in search with an item you are looking for.
Step 3. Scroll further down on that page, until you see the country selection that says “located in”, choose “Myanmar” from the drop-down list.
Step 4. Search will yield results from Myanmarese sellers only.
Buying from eBay sellers in Asia & various regions;
Perhaps the most popular way for online shopping in Myanmar is to search amongst Asian sellers, for competitive pricing and shipping costs.
Step 1. Enter the global eBay shop version for Myanmar
Step 2. Search for an item you are looking for normally.
Step 3. See the options on the left side, which include a setting to change to another country region such as Asia, North America (USA), Europe, etc.
Myanmar shipping, and delivery support;
The eBay marketplace supports a range of shipping, and delivery options to Yangon, and elsewhere in Myanmar or Burma. But this supports on the seller.
However, when you are located anywhere in Myanmar and eBay detects your internet connection as such, all searches will show results based on shipping support. Also this includes the automatic calculation of sending rate estimates.
Therefore using the advanced search options above is not required.
For those, located outside of the country can change their country settings by sining in and proceeding to settings, or sign up if you don’t have an eBay account yet.
Shopping within Asia for example, often low-cost shipping methods are supported. But you can contact international sellers, and ask them for customized delivery options. As using fast and secure courier services is recommended for expensive items.
Supported shipping destinations include; Myitkyina, Naypyidaw,Pyay, Mandalay, Pathein, Mawlamyine, Yangon, Taunggyi, Monywa, Bago & elsewhere.
Money payments & Myanmar kyat currency;
Most common method of payment is by PayPal or debit card, at times credit cards are also used but more rare nowadays. And despite the lack of support for Myanmar kyat on the e-commerce website, you can pay with kyat converted from USD.
Prepaid Visa and Mastercard is now a common method of payment.
Simply charge kyat into your card, and payments will be subtracted by using the latest US Dollar exchange rate. The site shows all pricing in USD.
Auctions & selling on eBay in Myanmar;
You can also use the popular marketplace to sell or auction items, either locally or by using the global shipping program designed for international sellers.
This is likely the easiest, and most convenient method of entering the Myanmarese e-commerce market if residing abroad, with a modern English platform.

Sorry, but you cannot add an address of delivery in Myanmar when you try to buy anything from eBay. There is no “Myanmar” in the country list of address.
No Myanmar in country list. Are you sure you checked it before writing this article?
As far as I know, if you don’t see “Myanmar” in the list of supported countries when buying from eBay, there could be several reasons to it such as;
1. The seller doesn’t support shipping to Myanmar
2. The seller doesn’t support a shipping option that supports Myanmar
3. You need to contact the seller and ask them if they can ship to Myanmar
USPS supports shipping to the country.
Hope that helps! Thanks.
I can’t even add my shipping address. Cause there isn’t have either.
Sorry to hear that.
You could try contacting the seller.
Do they ship to Naypyidaw?
As previously mentioned, not all sellers support shipping to Myanmar and you may have to contact the seller concerning shipping.
However, if Myanmar is supported then will Naypyidaw too.
Sorry to bother you…
but what if I want to sell something and there is no Myanmar option when adding information about me?
I will pay more epay
ebay doesnt allow us to sell or buy stuff it doesnt even want us to register an account
Have you checked guest login? Anyway, seems there is little you can do at this point unless their policies change. Thanks for your feedback.
