Shipping to UK for eCommerce Sellers
The United States is the second highest importer to the UK, and the two countries have a long and rich history of trade. And it’s no wonder: between the large population, the extended life expectancy, and the annual GDP hovering around $2.622 trillion, each country has plenty of consumer needs.
At this point of time, there are about 40,000 companies that export to the UK each year. Reports state that 34% of the UK’s population regularly makes purchases abroad, with 15% buying a product online from overseas at least once a week.
Of particular note as it relates to eCommerce and shipping, consumer prices in the UK average about 10.87% lower in the UK than in the US. While prices are lower, spending is often higher, and continues to go up at a rate of about 4% per year.
Shipping Challenges in UK
US sellers must differentiate their products as a cut above the others in the competitive market that exists in the United Kingdom. Many of the complexities of UK’s politics and public policies make for difficulty with regards to complying to changing regulations and postal standards.
This should not be a deterrent to businesses looking to export to the UK, though. In 2016, the UK reported an import amount of $6.25 billion in goods and services. It is the fourth largest importer to the world, which is why exporting to the UK is a primmer offering to US sellers and shippers of all kinds.
- Use preferred payment methods – Debit and Credit Card.
- Plan on holiday delays. Public holidays in the UK differ from American holidays. Royal Mail and others don’t deliver on holidays in the United Kingdom.
- British people like purchasing from overseas retailers to secure a product before it’s been released in the UK.
