Czech eBay Site

The site intended for customers from the Czech Republic, “eBay global” is one of the most popular e-commerce sites, if not the most popular auction site.

There are also alternative sites like eBay, worth checking out for price comparison, and local shipping costs — they are listed further in the post below!

How eBay works in Czech Republic

These are my tips on how eBay works better for Czech users, how to compare pricing amongst sellers, how shipping, delivery works, etc.

Shopping with eBay sellers from Czech Republic;

There are many local sellers, so it can be worth it searching amongst them first if you want your order as fast as possible, and with cheap shipping costs.

Step 1. Use this link for the advanced search on Czech eBay

Step 2. Downwards on that page you’ll se “Located in” settings.

Step 3. Search for and select “Czech Republic” from the country list.

Step 4. Only items from Czech sellers will be shown.

Shopping with eBay sellers from Europe, Asia, etc.

A popular methods is to shop amongst European sellers to do without customs taxes, or Asian sellers for competitive pricing and cheap delivery options.

Step 1. Use this link for the international Czech eBay

Step 2. Search anything that you are looking for.

Step 3. On your left, there is a menu with several options. Amongst them is a quick selection for the “Item Location”, switch results to Europe, Asia, etc.

Shipping and delivery support to Czech Republic;

Most globally available items can be shipped to the Czech Republic. Shipping methods however totally depend on the seller. Ranging from regular mail services to fast courier services or a selection of both and something in between.

The eBay website itself detects your internet location automatically, and tries to calculate shipping costs depending on the country you are in.

If detection does not work, you might want to set your country in the account settings. Also, this will ensure that relevant items are shown in search results.

Sellers on eBay are known to ship to cities such as Prague, Brno, Ostrava, Pilsen, Olomouc, Liberec, České Budějovice, Hradec Králové, Ústí nad Labem, Pardubice, Havířov, Zlín, Kladno as well as the rest of Czech Republic.

Selling on Czech eBay marketplace;

The site is also often used for selling goods from international locations by entering the Czech e-commerce market. Thanks to the extensive global shipping program, it’s easy to do business there, conveniently in English with a known shopping brand.

eBay Alternatives in Czech Republic;

If you are looking for an alternative seller and auctioning portal like eBay, some come close and most are classic classifieds ads sites. Unfortunately there is nothing in English, so eBay is likely the most useful for foreigners, expats, etc.

Without further ado, eBay alternatives and similar sites;

Aukro

Quoted as “The largest Czech online marketplace” (největší české online tržiště). Aukro, is focused in auction listings, as well as purchases for a fixed price. Serving as a seller portal to both individuals, traders and businesses. They launched in 2003, and to date have about 4 million users according to Aukro. Likely the best alternative.
