UK’s Finest launches new Amazon webinar series for Retail & Consumer companies


With the global demand for Retail & Consumer products booming, UK’s Finest has collaborated with The Department for International Trade for an exclusive webinar series focused on selling in Japan, the USA and Europe with Amazon.

It’s common knowledge that e-commerce platforms can be a quick and easy way to begin exploring new markets, as it can allow you to test potential customer bases without the costs traditionally incurred. But selling online overseas isn’t always as simple as copying and pasting the methods learnt selling your products online in the UK. It’s always best to listen to the experts before taking the plunge!

Why have we focussed on Amazon?

As a trusted household e-commerce name, the platform offers huge opportunities for all Retail & Consumer companies. With over 2 billion visitors in June 2021 alone, once up and running on Amazon in international markets you’ll be accessing a colossal number of new customers right from the comfort of your desk in the UK!

UK’s Finest has recognised the USA, Europe and Japan as high potential markets for Retail & Consumer companies, working with the Department for International Trade to tailor an exclusive webinar series for marketplace members that already have experience selling on Amazon in the UK. Each free, hour-long webinar will be hosted by experienced experts in the industry, covering 3 topic areas:

  1. The main differences between that marketplace and Amazon UK
  2. Fulfilment solutions
  3. Compliance

If you want to increase your customer base across the globe, but are not sure which markets to try or how to access them, don’t miss out on this webinar series.
