How do I sell for Amazon in Europe?
When an Amazon seller finds success with their sales in the United States, they may wonder whether the next best move is to take their business into the European marketplace. Amazon recommends that those who are English speakers register on Amazon.co.uk, because it will be their home marketplace and is already in English. You can also register elsewhere and have marketplaces in German, Spanish, Italian, and French.
One question that a lot of people have about entering the European Marketplace is regarding the fees that Amazon will charge you to do so. If you want to sell in all five of the previously mentioned marketplaces, you will only be charged for one membership fee that allows you access to each. You will also be able to translate all of your pages on Seller Central into English.
The monthly fee to sell in all 5 European marketplaces is £25.00/month, which equates to roughly $32.53 per month in U.S. dollars, and $130.13 annually. You also have the option to only sell in the UK market, if you want. Those who decide to work with Fulfillment by Amazon in Europe will be able to use the European Fulfilment Network and the Multi-Country Inventory.
It is incredibly important that you have an Amazon accountant assist you with the taxes and regulations that are applicable to your business. You don’t want to get into financial or legal trouble by unintentionally not paying certain taxes that you simply weren’t aware of.
