Established contracts with each marketplace
Technically integrating to each sales channel through an API.
Providing automated data management, localised content and customer service
When you are set up and ready to sell on marketplaces in the UK, you will need to automate your processes; as well as ensure that your listings are localised and that your customer service team can offer support in the buyer’s local language.
Managing cross-border shipments and returns in the UK
As you will be selling on marketplaces in the UK, you will be shipping cross-border. This requires different processes than domestic shipping, such as tariffs and documentation. In addition, you will need to manage returns if the buyer is unsatisfied with their purchase.
Managing payments and different currencies
The United Kingdom has its own currency, and buyers have varying preferences of how to pay. For example, British consumers may prefer to pay with the ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ (BNPL) payment method. So it’s essential to manage all these and consider the exchange rate implications.
Managing local taxes and other legal compliances.
Importing in the UK after Brexit has become more
challenging as European and international retailers navigate changes in logistics, compliance,
tariffs and documentation. That’s where Arcade Retail comes in.
