Selling Online Overseas
If your ecommerce business isn’t currently trading on an e-marketplace, it’s time to take the next step and put your products in front of more customers around the world.
Ecommerce sales are predicted to reach £2.8 trillion by 2020, with 40% of those sales happening on e-marketplaces. The growth of such platforms is being driven by increasingly savvy shoppers and the rise of online shopping on mobile devices.
More and more online shoppers are also buying from foreign websites, meaning UK retailers are having to adopt cross-border strategies to develop their business internationally. By the end of the year, it’s estimated that 28% of European online retailers will sell their products overseas, and 83% of European cross-border shoppers will buy online from another European country.
