N hemispere binoc w compass not working in S?

i was in a binocular shop today & the salesperson warned me not to buy a pair of binoculars from the northern hemisphere(im in the southern hemisphere)ie, over the internet from the US or europe. he said the compasses required in the north or south hemisphere are different,he said a northern hemisphere binoculor with compass,that the compass would not work at all!

he said this after i told him i could buy over the internet at much cheaper prices than his.
i found the compass thing not working a little hard to believe.

was he right?, or was he just trying to make a sale?
any advice please
