I thought you could only say that you sell from australia if you were in australia

I bought a handbag which was supposed to be in sydney but it has been posted from china

I thought Ebay stopped people from doing that

I'm not sure ebay have any interest whatsoever in stopping it, they have no reason to care

 

They are of course 100% aware of it and it is very very very common

 

Just as sellers based in countries in Asia lie and pretent they are based in somewhere like Darwin

One way to check is by looking at the negative feedback any slow delivery should raise a red flag! you can leave similar feedback to warn others if you wish

Often when you click on feedback they show as being an Asian (usually Chinese) registration for the ID.

 

As others have said eBay has no interest in stopping the practice, and it would be up to the site the seller's registered in anyway - can't ever see the Chinese site penalising their members.
