***Updated: Launch of new eBay.ie Site for Ireland ***
03 June, 2005 | 12:14PM BST
We would like to officially extend a warm welcome to the Irish community as we launch our newest eBay site, eBay.ie!
Thousands of Irish people are already active buyers and sellers on other eBay sites around the world. This new site will serve their needs even better while still offering the benefits of being part of the Worlds Online Marketplace. eBay Ireland is now available at http://www.ebay.ie.
Some of the benefits for Irish members of the new site include:
* The default listing and display currency will be Euros, so Irish members will not need to make any conversions to see prices in local amounts
* Searching for items available to Irish buyers will be easier, as the site will focus on items where sellers will post to Ireland
* PayPal will be integrated with the new site, enabling fast, easy and secure payments in Euros, Pounds Sterling and other currencies
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
