Wanting to buy a load of stuff off of german ebay... However, having serious difficulties creating an account with them!!! Does any body have any tips or know how to do it? Don't speak a word of German, so been using an online translator to help me out...

Can you not just log in with your username and password?? That works for me. T:

I just log into then do a search for items available in the EU and that normally works.

Just log in using your uk details, just tried it now for myself, works fine, it is all written in german though, very amusing, for a minute.

as it say above just use your uk ebay user id to log into , you can find a link at the very bottom of the ebay home page ,( list of countries ) click on "germany"

now buying off of can be a tricky thing now and again , i use to buy 2 to 4 sets of golf alloys wheels a week from germany to resell on , a couple of things you need to check with the seller even before you place a bid is confirmation that they will post to england + postage costs also whether they accept paypal . not many germans use paypal as they have a free bank transfer system , if they dont use paypal a bank transfer to germany will cost you around £25.00 from a uk bank which could make that bargain a little expensive .

Viel Glück, du verrückt Engländer

may i suggest this company-

they did good combined shippng- rear clusters, front indicators and grill for 20 euros. i ordered on monday and it arrived on friday, seriously!
i was assuming it to be a hassle so i had german ebay and uk ebay open at the same time. in german ebay i copied the item number and posted it into uk ebay then saved the item to my ebay. probably wasnt necessary but i tend to do this all the time!
like someone said earlier its still probably worth making contact first to confirm they can post to you.
good luck.T:

You can copy the description and paste it into, hey presto readable translationT:

I use the Google "translate a webpage" function to work out the listing text. Then if I want to buy I stick the item number into UK ebay so all the ebay buttons are in English.

To be totally honest.. I never even tried to log in with my uk account.... :bhd Its always the simplest of things that seem to evade me sometimes... Gonna give it a go right now!!!
If it doesn't work... Goin to have to go back to the faithful online translator!!!

Cheers guys...

Hello from Germany. ;)

Simply log in with your and then visit . Should work properly.

Or: Visit the .de-website and then log in.

Something odd: If you have logged in in the .de-website, you have to log in at the again if you visit it. Seems to be the cookie, it's bound to the website.

But: Use the "Watch this item in My eBay"-option and then login at your eBay (

Then you can get the amount in Pound - like me getting it in €.
