conversion charts

Don’t mess with these conversion charts

It is understandable that users may get confused when buying clothes or shoes on the internet – especially if they’re not buying them on their domestic markets. In many cases, online shoppers are concerned that the item of clothing or shoes that they’re buying may not be the correct size that they need and will not fit. This is the reason why online sellers must be very precise when they specify the sizes of the clothes or shoes they are selling online on foreign markets.


Clothes and shoes conversion charts all over the world
When the sizes and measurements are clearly written and correct in the listing it gives potential buyers more confidence to buy. Take a look at eBay sites showing the conversion charts for these countries here.

As an easy example we can use a case when a girl from Europe with dress size 38 wants to buy a shirt in Australia. She should actually be looking for a size 10 there, not a 38. If she would like to buy clothes in the USA she should order size 6. Below you can find all conversion charts with the sizes for clothes and shoes that will be needed while selling these items on foreign markets.

Using correct conversion charts for the products you are selling internationally is important, not only for the online shoppers but also for the sellers. If they use the conversion charts correctly they will avoid receiving returns or refunds.

Besides the general conversion charts we have some additional regulations that are being created by the big brands who have their own size measurements. You therefore need to take this fact into consideration before you set the item size for Adidas or Converse shoes in a foreign listing.
