E-commerce adviser tip

The eBay Global Shipping Programme makes international postage as simple as selling to someone in the UK. Sellers simply post items to a UK shipping centre, and eBay takes care of customs clearance, tracking and all the rest. You don’t have to pay anything extra - just the cost of posting the item to the UK shipping centre.

UK businesses wishing to apply, need to be either the brand owner or authorised to sell the brand.
