    Hello,

    I bought a gift certificate for ebay of $200. I bought it since the seller was giving it for very cheap. Now, i want to buy a nokia mobile phone. But, all the seller that are selling the mobiles, i contacted them and they say they do not ship to India. I also tried for Internal Hard Drive, same case with that too.

    Now, i need to know is it possible to buy on ebay.com that ships to India.

    i want to use the EBay GC.

    Any suggestions??

    Please help.

    It can be done.. There are companies that provide you with your own US mailing address. So while purchasing the item, you give your US address. The companies then redirect the items to your actual address which could be anywhere in the world...

    But on the whole it is a bad idea because you need to pay shipping twice and also some custom duty... Do this only if you are desperately looking for an item that is not available in India

    I know i can get it from Ebay.in

    But the problem is, the gift certificate that i have works only on ebay.com and not on ebay.in

    So, the only option i have is to buy something from ebay.com

    Yeah you need to buy from ebay.com in that case.. I think you can find some sellers that ship internationally .. Or simply ask them if they are willing to ship internationally and you are willing to pay extra dollars for that

    I shop a lot at eBay (.com) and there are many sellers that ship to India. I have never had a problem looking for any product.

    Might be a better idea just to sell off the gift card..

    I am pretty sure you can use the advanced search feature and search for the item you want and list only the sellers that offer International shipping.

    Many sellers only want to ship to the US but there are plenty of sellers who will ship Internationally. (you can email the sellers who do not list that they ship internationally and ask if they wil but honestly, faster way is just to refine the search for only sellers who state that they ship internationall in their listing.).

    Good luck.
