Ebay.ch in English

Hi,

Does anyone know how to change the language on eBay.ch to English? Maybe I'm blind...

I want to register on eBay (global company, right?). Can't do it in my "old" country, as my current credit card is registered in Switzerland. eBay.ch would be the obvious option, but the pages are all in German.

Any pointers would be much appreciated. I'm sure there is a small menu item hidden somewhere on the page...

Also, please omit replies on "you should learn German...".

Thx

Thanks! I was hoping for a better solution, but I see there is a "workaround"

No you can't. I've asked. You can use your Swiss log-in to track things on .co.uk or .com, but when it comes to sending messages etc, then it logs you into the .ch version (which is default German).

Re: Ebay.ch in English

I set up my account with eBay UK, but can use global ebay from the same account.
My credit card is Swiss with a Swiss address and I managed to change all the information into English, without speaking a word of German.
There is a way of changing it without too much effort, and now there is even a virtual advisor to help with their hopeless customer service.
