    is my answer "ik heb dit in spanje gekocht" okay?


    Yes. Should be accepted.


    Is "Ik kochte dit in Spanje" acceptable or is it wrong to use the imperfect in this context?


    The imperfect of the verb 'kopen' (to buy) is irregular, just like in English.

    Ik koop - Ik kocht
    Jij koopt - Jij kocht
    Hij koopt - Hij kocht

    Wij, jullie, zij kopen - Wij, jullie, zij kochten.
