    Hey guys,

    I had a question about selling items on eBay from Pakistan. I know Pakistan doesn't allow Paypal but in my scenario I wanted my cousin to be able to use my Paypal account which is registered at a Canadian address but him being able to ship products from Pakistan.

    I live in Canada and he lives in Pakistan and we were hoping to start a small business and sell items online on eBay. :) We are hoping to directly sell from Pakistan as it would reduce shipping costs and hassle by first sending item into Canada and then sending from Canada to buyers location.

    Therefore, is it at all possible to link my Canadian Paypal account to a Pakistan eBay account?

    If anyone has any experience or information to share regarding what we are trying to do, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a great day.

    As we know PayPal doesn't support Pakistan, and using your PayPal address for payments to be made to eBay for the products to be sold/bought in Pakistan will sooner or later lead to suspension of your PayPal account, which is risking too much for something that doesn't sound right-ish... I can suggest you other ways where you will be making tons of money.. add me if you feel like

    YOU NEED TO BE SHIPPING STUFF TO CANADA BEFORE SELLING THEM ON EBAY. In the long run you will have FAR less problems that it will be totally worth the shipping costs.

    I have seen many people selling from Pakistan for years. Don't know the name but I remember a guy used to sell collectible items from Pakistan with Paypal account.

    Can you elaborate here as it is hard for newbies to pm directly.

I live in Bangladesh & even though we dont have any option on having paypal,I have paypal for last 5 years now for my online business & never had any issue with it.I also used to sell on ebay(not physical but virtual services) but dont sell there anymore.My point is....well very simple....if you want something there's always a way to get it,question is are you willing to do the hard work for it or want someone to spoonfeed you?!

    Collectibles is a different than selling other stuff because if you're selling unique items, people are willing to be more patient.

    I think you have to work out shipping costs and more importantly shipping times to the countries you want to sell in. If your post is no good and delays stuff too much you will get kicked out from Ebay in no time.
