02/02/23 Nick Uresin
The guest on today’s episode is Anton Herman. He co-founded a SaaS startup company: SPACEGOATS simplifies global expansion for your E-Commerce business – as the CMO of the company he’s currently overseeing the Marketing and Sales department. In today’s episode, he discusses business models for expansion into European marketplaces.
- The most important thing that brands need to know before expanding into European marketplaces is compliance.
- The easiest way to enter the European market is through a distributor.
- You have to add the cost of VAT to the item price.
- In Germany, the minimum VAT is 19%.
- Amazon applies their fees on the gross price when selling in Europe and this will make the amazon fees higher.
Quote of the Show:
We have a regulation in Europe and U.K that every product that is sold on the European Marketplace needs to have a company liable for the product sitting in this region.
