How can you ensure your e-commerce store's success in the post-Brexit time?

The Brexit transition period is still ongoing, and there are many still unknown implications for e-commerce businesses. However, for the UK, the well-recognised e-commerce giant in Europe, the stakes are high.

The top 10 countries UK based e-commerce merchants sell to are the United States, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Ireland, China, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, and Spain. Of the top 10 list, seven countries are members of the European Union.

The question on industry minds is undoubtedly how Brexit will affect UK based e-commerce merchants selling to Europe. Experts anticipate slower online deliveries and increased costs for deliveries from the UK. Exports to the European Union are also forecasted to decrease due to changes in tariffs.

Whether this will eventually be the case or not, online consumers in Europe already think Brexit will lead to slower delivery times and increased costs, which in itself may be enough to impact sales.

Here are 3 practical ways we can help you

1. Store your goods in a Europe-based fulfillment center

With our expansive warehouse network, you can reach central Europe and the Nordics either the next day, or within two days. We currently have warehouses in The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia, and we’re about to open new warehouses in Northern Spain and the UK in 2020.

A few examples:

  • Shipping time from our Netherlands warehouse to Munich: approximately 1 day
  • Shipping time from our Netherlands warehouse to Paris: approximately 2 days

2. Gain benefits from multi-warehousing

By multi-warehousing, you can store your goods in several warehouses — while still managing everything from one store. When a customer places an order, the fulfillment center closest to them fulfills it. Easy, right?

A multi-warehousing option is available for all OGOship customers. It’s as simple as choosing the warehouses you want to use, integrating your e-commerce platform to our Order Management System myOGO, and storing the goods in the locations that suit you best.

3. Multiple stores, one stock

For example, if you have different language versions of your store or different prices for other countries, you can still use the same stock. With this feature, you will have one less thing to worry about when operating your e-commerce store in the post-Brexit era.
