Is there a way to customize the shopping url for my country.

By default if I type ebay:vanity in the dash it returns results from ebay.com

I am in Australia and I want to search ebay.com.au

mondjudge thanks for your concern, not sure whether this has changed in 13.10 see here: news.softpedia.com/news/… –  user214808 Nov 13 '13 at 23:24
I found a question with answers to change the url in the amazon lens. It is a workaround, but maybe this also works for the ebay lens: askubuntu.com/questions/204829/… –  mondjunge Nov 14 '13 at 11:29
mondjunge, thank you again for your reply. It seems this was a work around in 12.10 but is not available in 13.10. Also there is no reference to ebay in the dir: /usr/share/applications Thank you for your time. –  user214808 Nov 15 '13 at 21:57
