eBay team response: “Thank you for contacting eBay Customer Service. I understand from your email that you are concerned to why you are unable to see your country Kosovo in creating an account in eBay, please allow me to explain and assist you. My name is Kristine and I can definitely help you.
First of all, I want to apologize for not being able to respond to your email sooner. We have been experiencing high volume of emails and we are trying to get to each of them as soon as possible.
As for your concern, I had spoken with our Technical Deparand tried to ask if its a problem with our system, however, it seems that the reason to why you dont see your Country because your country is an Independent Country that is not part of United Nations and still not recognized. Because of this it is rather inderteminate and has not been set up with our system to use your country in registration and shipping.
As of this time we apologize if this has not been set. Dont worry I have already forwareded this to our Headquarters to have this lifted.”
