    EU or Conus in the headline.

    I wonder why sellers dont write EU or Conus in the headline at sales corner?
    It would save a lot of time for the buyers.
    As a buyer it is better to sort out the watches you have a chance to buy.

    Because a lot of sellers will sell anywhere?

    If i look att 20 ads, atleast 17 of them are Conus only. If you want to sell everywhere just write Conus/EU.
    Is that a big problem?

    There are many more places on earth than just CONUS and the EU. What about Asia? Africa? South America?

    That's why people say CONUS only, because the default assumption is that you are selling everywhere unless otherwise specified.

    If you really want, go on Watchrecon and you can filter by country.

    I may be a little bit overly into Japanese watches. Maybe.

    Ok, you are right but from my side it was just an example for how it should work.
    The only time i se it is in the headlines of EU sellers. Its very easy to write EU, Conus, International or anything else so why is it a problem. Instead of saying Conus in the end of the ad just do it in the headline Instead.
    (Conus is just an example)

    This has to be one of the more asinine rants I've read on here.

    What's funnier is that you've made 4 posts on the forum, three of them are about this topic

    EU or Conus in the headline.

    Search engine will not accept just "EU" as there needs to be three characters in minimum.
    Therefore it would great if at least European sellers would include "EUR", "Euro", or "Europe".

    Just my two euro cents...

    Whoa, whoa, whoa... you mean that there's something outside the CONUS? No, really? Since when?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and think maybe you live in the US?

    As someone based in Oz I can attest that filtering through all the posts and finding out that at the very bottom a seller has opted (for their own reasons) to not take advantage the existence of international commerce and trade it can be quite frustrating.

    I'm sure vendors have their own very good reasons for opting for CONUS only. And if you can sell in your own marketplace then more power to you.

    To my mind this is close to the perfect type of change request. Small, manageable and with great benefit to those that need it whilst having little to no detrimental impact on anyone.

    Just my $0.02
