With Amazon you can – Easily, cost effectively and with minimal risk and outlay
Team up with one of the world’s leading internet retailers and join over two million active sellers generating billions in sales on Amazon every year.
Now from one single home marketplace account and for a monthly subscription fee of only £25 with no subsequent listing fees, you can list your offers in over 20 different product categories on multiple Amazon Europe marketplaces in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
With Fulfilment by Amazon and Amazon’s European Fulfilment Network (EFN) sellers can then ship their products to an Amazon fulfilment centre in their home marketplace where they are subsequently made available from a local inventory pool and delivered directly by Amazon to your customers purchasing on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr and Amazon.it. Amazon even takes care of customer service and returns handling.
Gain reach and flexibility, save time and money. From one order report in your seller account, you have easy access to a complete overview of your Amazon European online business. Offer your customers an unparalleled customer experience, with fast and reliable delivery, regardless of where the item is ordered from.
Should you initially prefer to sell only on Amazon.co.uk, with Fulfilment by Amazon’s Export to EU option, Amazon will take care of shipping to customers purchasing your products throughout the EU. With our multichannel fulfilment option, we will even take care of delivering orders from the same inventory pool to your UK customers which originate from your own, other third-party sites and even in-store sales.
Sellers are letting Amazon Services help them grow and expand internationally faster than they could possibly do themselves
As Julius Oliveti, director of UK electronics and PC accessory firm Gizmo-Deals, says: “Fulfilment by Amazon is the only way I know of allowing a one man company to sell in multiple countries and turnover in excess of £1 million a year. If I was to take this idea to Dragons’Den they would bite my hand off to invest.”
Sylvain Desprez, founder of French merchant Moeroshop, admits that his business is years ahead of where it would otherwise be thanks to Amazon. He is now selling successfully across Europe too. “Sales are up and we have access to an excellent customer base on Amazon in the UK and Germany,” he says.
Ravi Karia from Universal Textiles based in Leicester took the family business online. “Amazon has enabled us to easily expand our business into new countries and grow our UK business through the economic crisis,” he says. “They offer an excellent low-cost and low-risk model allowing small businesses like ourselves to reach new customers all around the world. Within 18 months from launching our products on Amazon’s international websites, 30 per cent of our annual turnover is now from non-UK sales. Signing up as a seller has been one of the best decisions we have made as a company.”
An increasing number of sellers are also teaming up with Amazon to expand outside of Europe, leveraging the Amazon network and Fulfilment by Amazon to sell their products in the USA.Get off to a really strong start in 2012 and become an Amazon seller.
