Default Tracking number from a different country than the item's location

Hello, I have an account on the Egyptian eBay website. Can I add a tracking number from another country to the buyer? This means that my eBay account is Egyptian and my item address is Egypt. After selling the item, can I put a tracking number for the item from another country? Or is this against eBay policy? If it is against their policy. What is the correct way to put a tracking number for another country? When I list the item, do I put the address in the country where I put the tracking number, or is this also a violation? I want advice. thank you all. I have benefited greatly from this wonderful forum and all the members. You are all respectable and educated people. May God bless you. And in your family

You have to put on eBay the location from where the item is shipped, getting caught doing anything else is a violation of policy and could lead to a suspended account

Thanks for your response, brother. So, if I put a US tracking number, I have to locate the item while listing it in America. Do you mean that? If I do that, is this considered a violation because my account is Egyptian and the location of the item will be America, or is this normal? Thank you.

Yes that is it, even in the USA if you have a selling address in Miami and you ship from Atlanta you have to state that, as buyers determine how long they will have to wait for delivery once shipped. I used to have 2 shipping locations one on the east coast and another on the west coast and had to state location of where the orders were being shipped from.

Default

where is the buyer?
You can add tracking number but it would not be updated by Ebay as it assumes it is shipped from where you say the location is.
if the buyer claims he did not receive the item,then you have to show it has been delivered ,you would have to let Ebay know it is shipped from a different address with a Non Egyptian carrier.

You can also marked the item shipped without tracking number,if he files item not received,then try to show Ebay the tracking number.

Chinese sellers would list items in USA,there are 2 warehouses in USA which stock many Chinese goods and if a Chinese seller signs up,he can list pictures and ask them to do the shipping,not a problem with Ebay.
The way Ebay updates your tracking is to go to the carrier site with your tracking number and copy the status ,so for Ebay USA,depends on your tracking #,it will go to USPS,Fed Ex,UPS and DHS.
If you give them an Egyptian tracking number,they wont be able to find a match on these US carriers ,thats why I suggest you mark the item shipped and not give the tracking number.
There are cases where a seller in US uses a trucking co,it would have to tell Ebay the name of the trucking Co and if it has a website which tracks,so Ebay would go there.
But it is not going to go to a foreign post office or your local carrier .
I hope it helps.

THen you can enter your US tracking number and Ebay can update you tracking progress.

If the platform allows you to change the item location then it should be fine. If it wasn't allowed they would probably only want you to ship from Egypt. Change the item location to the USA.

Good update, which is what I explained before, there is a work around which allows you just to put USA as the shipping location and not the specific state. The Chinese used this to be non specific as to which warehouse they were shipping from.
