About Hong Kong eBay

The gateway to China and one of the biggest worldwide logistics hubs in the world, Hong Kong has a unique position on eBay. Also nicknamed as the “heart of Asia”. With connections to both, a massive product manufacture and logistics industry, HK sellers are able to deliver products at a cost that’s sometimes hard to believe. As well as having the capacity to provide unlimited resources to tapping into the goods business.

Thanks to eBay consumer protection, and a western-mindset of running the auctions portal, many consider it a safer option to make purchases than other Chinese alternatives. There are good reasons for such low prices, which do not necessarily reflect on product quality. With already an active production and shipping cycle, many HK eBay sellers simply “cash-in” by adding individual orders to already existing batch deliveries. In this way the cost is reduced to close to nothing, because making a handful of additional items along these orders makes no difference.

While focusing on exports, the website is also used as an online e-commer website within Hong Kong itself. Although it’s popularity within the country is relatively small compared to the success of eBay in western countries.

HK eBay in English

For English language, nearly all Hong Kong based sellers are available on the American based US portal of eBay. For those who have Chinese language skills or want to juggle with translation software, the eBay.com.hk address provides the same service with one language only. With the added convenience of HK dollar marked prices, and easier leisure shopping opportunities.

Alternatives to eBay

There are a near infinite amount of alternatives to Hong Kong auction portals, consumer-to-consumer and other online shopping websites in the Chinese language. Other than that, common options are the Chinese run AliExpress for smaller purchases, and Alibaba for direct contact with manufacturers.

If you have any questions at all related to HK e-commerce or auctions websites, please leave a comment. Thank you.

  1. Hi
    Thank you for your invitation to contact you.
    I am selling opal on ebay as well as my own site since approx 2000
    I have a friend from mainland China so written or spoken Chinese language isn’t a problem.
    Buying from China isn’t a problem as you know.
    trying to sell seems impossible or am I looking in the wrong places.
    For some reason I have just found the Hong Kong Ebay site and will get her to look at this in Chinese and I in English.
    We looked at weChat but that is a one way as is Alibaba goods out only
    Thanks in anticipation

    • A lot of US companies have failed in China — including eBay. That’s why you need to use Chinese channels if you want to penetrate the market there. And you can be sure that they are ready for business — importing foreign products is an increasing trend.
