Is there eBay in Egypt? In this guide I’ve compiled the essentials on shipping, using and buying from eBay as well as how to access the Egyptian eBay site.
Despite the lack of a specifically localized ebay.eg version (or any proper, alternative equivalents) of eBay for Egypt, you can use the global version here.
By using some of the suggestions below, you can easily browse through and buy items with shipping & delivery to Cairo or elsewhere in Egypt.
How eBay works in Egypt
You have a few options to compare the cost of items, based on location and shipping options and the customize searches to fit your needs.
Online shopping from eBay sellers in Egypt;
You’d be surprised how many Egyptian eBay sellers there are, most of them located in Cairo. As this would cut delivery costs it’s worth checking;
Step 2. Scroll down until you can see the “Located in” menu
Step 3. Select “Egypt” from the drop-down list
Step 4. Search for item within sellers from the country
Online shopping from Asia & other regions;
There’s other way to refine searches too, such as items located in Europe, or Asia. The latter offering competitive pricing both for products and shipping.
Step 2. Enter an item that you are looking for and hit search
Step 3. The left menu selection offers an “Item Location” setting where you can set different regions for your searches.
Delivery & shipping support to Egypt;
The global eBay.com site automatically detects your location, so when you are in Egypt it will attempt to calculate shipping costs and display relative results. Otherwise, you can change your location settings in the settings of your account.
Online Shopping & auctioning in Egypt;
So, while there is eBay in Egypt, it’s the US based international site that can be used globally, from Cairo, Alexandria, Giza, Shubra El-Kheima, Port Said, Suez, El-Mahalla El-Kubra, Luxor, Mansoura, Tanta as well as other countries.
It also provides a convenient English language interface, and a familiar e-commerce brand for expats and those looking for foreign brands and products.
