Should an iPad bought in Canada work with Airpods from Ireland?

I bought airpods off a seller in Ireland for 140 euros and the Airpods aren't connected to my iPad's bluetooth. I tried 2 other Bluetooth headphones and they both connected to my iPad. I messaged the seller and he said it's probably because my iPad was bought from Canada and so it's not compatible.... show more I bought airpods off a seller in Ireland for 140 euros and the Airpods aren't connected to my iPad's bluetooth.

Is this true? I got my iPad just a month ago in Alberta, Canada?
