eBay Modifies Shopping Cart to Support International Listings

eBay Canada Chief Operating Officer Russ Patterson published the following post on the eBay Canada Announcement Board on Friday:

As of today, the eBay.com shopping cart has been modified to support listings created on other eBay sites.

Until now, eBay.com buyers could only purchase eBay.ca-listed items individually, using Buy It Now. If an eBay.ca seller created combined shipping discounts, buyers on eBay.com could not realize those discounts because they could not add items to the cart to combine them in checkout.

This is welcome news for Canadian sellers who sell to US buyers and offer combined shipping discounts. The change is being applied to all new eBay.ca items immediately, and to all existing items whenever they are revised, relisted, or reach their Good ‘Til Cancelled monthly renewal date.

A small group of Canadian sellers have been anxiously waiting for this fix for a long time. I’d like to thank those sellers for their patience and understanding while we implemented this change.
