I'm trying to figure out whether this will work for ebay UK.

I notice one of the reviews says its not localised for the UK, although I have written to Kyozou and received this response...

Thank you for your interest in Kyozou. I have provided answers to your
questions below:

Will it post to ebay UK for starters, and if so, in £GBP?
A) Yes. Kyozou is equipped to post auctions to eBay UK and you may do so in
£GBP.

Or will everything be in $'s including the customer checkout. Timezones?
A) Timezones are customizable in Kyozou so that everything appears to you in
local time.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Regards,


To me, that says Yes we are compatible with eBay UK - surely if it wasn't the had the chance to say so in that reply?

Any comments?

Hi Ady,

I can't comment on Kyozou specifically, but I am always careful when asking developers if they support a country because there is a lot more to it than currency symbols and timezones. The following all vary between international eBay sites:

  • Categories
  • Dates as well as timezones and currency
  • Shipping providers
  • Site features
  • Sales taxes / VAT
  • Spelling and language

  • If a developer hasn't considered all these factors I don't think they can really claim to "support" a country.

    Hi Andy,

    I also asked this....

    Can you confirm what restrictions are imposed by your software for UK users posting to ebay UK?

    Surely if its not compatible with ebay UK and doesn't include everything needed such as Royal Mail shipping options etc he had the chance to say so in his reply? I can't believe he would just ignore these points and say yes you can post to ebay uk and yes you can post in £'s.

    I take it that if it can post to ebay UK then it has to use UK categories otherwise the posting would fail.

    I'd look into it further but reading some of the other reviews about it on here I don't think I will bother. I'll stick with MW's for the time being. (can't stand it personally, but CA Merchant is too expensive lol)

    Most of those posts are old. We have had them for years they have changed a lot recently. Give them a try or just get a free demo.
