Top tips for selling online to Germany
A lot has been made of the fact that if the UK leaves the EU, after the referendum on 23rd June, that UK traders will lose a chunk of exports to Europe. And who knows which way that not will go?
But, in the meantime, it’s clear that Germany represents a massive market for UK ecommerce sellers to sell to. So how do you make the most of DE marketplaces?
This ebook from PlentyMarkets is bursting with insights. It looks at the peculiarities of selling in Germany and considers payments, returns and delivery issues with a keen local focus. The Germans do ecommerce differently from the Brits.
And, perhaps most usefully, it examines the very many different marketplaces that German shoppers use to buy. And then how UK sellers can plug into them.
It’s more than eBay or Amazon: think Ricardo, Fruugo, Zalando and the rest…
And, if any of that is news, then you definitely need this Guide to selling in Germany.
Why would we lose trade to Europe if we exit its not like the big businesses of Europe would allow the EU to turn its back on the UK they have more to lose than we do its all scaremongering?
It’s called import tax and VAT and noone wants to pay them when shopping online :)
Customs charges would make buying from UK extremely unattractive.
We import more from the EU than we export so somehow I cant see the EU doing anything to make selling to and from the UK more expensive for the rest of the EU.
Any customs duties added by the EU and mirrored by the UK if the UK leaves would cost the EU countries more than the UK because they sell us more than we sell them.
The UK could use the excess customs charged on imports from the EU to subsidise our exports making UK goods cheaper the rest of the EU would not be able to do a subsidy as it would be against EU policy.
The UK have all the cards in the EU trade game why do you think they want us to stay so much.
