eBay Lets Chinese Sellers Hide Location

I am a PowerSeller on eBay, and I also have an Auctiva Commerce site selling our wares. We are located in Australia.

In the last six months, eBay intermingled all listings from the U.K. and U.S., but I notice many of these sellers come from China, and many of these offer free delivery from China to Australia, U.K. and the U.S.

Also, when they advertise, they’re from your country, but they ship from China, which takes up to three weeks for delivery.

My concern is no one from developed countries like the U.S., U.K. and Australia can afford to send their products post free. eBay states that all sellers and buyers are honest, but then why do they allow these sites to falsely state they are located in your country?
