Basically, i know the fact that i can't receive money on ebay since i am from mauritius, but going through cleverdodo, i found out that you accept paypal as a mean of payment.So basically, Paypal does not only works for ebay or it works only for independant websites? Thinking of selling my olympus xz-1 since it's the high time to switch to a DSLR :P

Hello, What I learnt from Paypal is that they do not have an agreement with the bank of mauritius to debit money in a mauritian account. You can open an account if you have bank account in other countries.

I think that you can sell on ebay but any money you receive through paypal cannot be withdrawn, so basically you will have to spend it by buying something that you can use paypal to pay with, I hope that makes sense. Like Gices has suggested why not try and sell it using an ad there are loads of classifieds free to use in Mauritius

We are able to accept Paypal on the Clever Dodo Shop because we have a UK Paypal account. Mauritian accounts are still unable to receive money.

Why don't you advertise your digital camera on Lexpress/Orange classified or buy/sell groups on Facebook?
