Fortunately there are some methods by which you can sell your items and earn money from eBay in Pakistan.
Buying from eBay in Pakistan:
However you can buy things in eBay from Pakistan using transaction via money bookers like Western Union and Money Gram. But most of the sellers in eBay only trust in PayPal for their transaction because it is a secure, quick and cheap method of payment provided by eBay and they will hardly accept payments using methods other than PayPal. Best method to buy things from eBay in Pakistan is that you bid in eBay for your required item, if you win the bid, contact the seller and request him to accept payment using Western Union.
