In Europe, Amazon and eBay are two of the world's fastest growing e-commerce sales platforms. Sellers know that in order to gain a good competitive edge they must emulate for their customers the same shopping experience as they would when compared to buying from native EU based sellers. UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy are the prime markets.
Furthermore, they must also meet the stringent delivery requirements of the principle sales platforms (Amazon, eBay, Rakuten). By warehousing your inventory in the EU you are able to satisfy all these criteria and gain excellent customer feedback for your sales and delivery performance.
Stock is delivered to Western Eye Limited's warehouse in Bristol UK (conveniently situated at the junction of the main M4/M5 motorways) and with Royal Mail, DHL and other courier depots nearby.
All stock is logged into our industry standard Warehousing System and is instantly visible online on the client's computer. Clients forward their orders each day direct to Western Eye Limited as CSV or XML files and the orders are picked (packed if necessary) and dispatched the same day using the requested mail/courier service.
Western Eye Limited offers 24 hour, 48 hour and 72 hour delivery services in the UK for items up to 15Kg. Europe transit times vary between 3 to 5 days depending on location and a low cost 'next day' European Express Service is also available.
Mail can include a 'Signed For - Proof of Delivery' option where the customer's signature is recorded upon delivery and parcels are fully tracked.
There are no customs formalities for mail distributed within the EU.
All Signed For and Tracking Information is forwarded to our clients daily for on-forwarding to their customers within 24 hours of making their purchases.
Western Eye is also LQ (limited quantity dangerous goods) certified which is useful for the distribution of authorised batteries, cosmetics and similar products. "Note: These services are subject to meeting EU certification and regulatory requirements".
So - the customer receives their orders quickly, efficiently and with local mail stamps (typically Royal Mail, Deutsche Post and Nederland Post) indicating despatch from the UK. You can state 'Dispatched from Bristol, UK' on your Amazon and eBay listings. It's exactly same service level as if the customer had ordered the goods direct from a local UK/EU seller.
To complete the shopping experience, a UK return address assures the customer that the Returns Procedure is economic in postage and local. All returned items are logged in to the Western Eye Returns Database and detailed RMA reports are sent to the client as PDF and Excel files daily.
Western Eye Limited can be considered as an extension of your warehouse in Europe. With its considerable knowledge of the e-commerce market, the use of its sophisticated warehousing system and the logistics involved in reaching the customer, the Company is committed to helping its clients achieve optimum market share in the UK and EU through efficiency of service and excellent customer feedback.
These are just a few reasons why Western Eye Limited can put you ahead of the competition and help grow your business into the lucrative UK/EU marketplace.
