Start Selling Internationally on eBay - Expand your Exports: Masterclass Series

Tuesday, 1 December 2020 10:30 am to 12:30 pm


Once a consumer-to-consumer auction platform, eBay transformed rapidly into a huge marketplace for retail businesses to sell anything from stainless steel teaspoons to bean bag chairs to brand new iphones. Now, some of the UK’s biggest brands have listed their catalogue on eBay, which opens doors for retailers in a multitude of industries.

This 2-hour event is part workshop part webinar and will help businesses understand what they need to do to start selling internationally on eBay and become a successful exporter. A customer in Barcelona is just as easy to reach with eBay than a customer in Birmingham!

What will I learn?

The workshop is not a ‘How to list workshop.’ and nor is it a ‘How to get rich quick on eBay.’ workshop.

Instead it will take you through a structured approach to starting your export journey one of the world’s most used marketplace and explore how you can access free listings for first time sellers on the Pay As You Grow scheme.

You will look at the countries served by eBay, learn how to research what products will sell where, and what competition you have within that market.

You’ll also hear from small business owners like yourself, that have gone through this journey, often the hard way and they will help you understand how you can manage the platform and how to ensure you remain where you need to be.

More importantly you will come away with a defined action plan that means you can start this journey with a clear route map for the future.


Who is this masterclass for?

The masterclass is for South West companies with products suitable to sell on Amazon. It is more suitable for companies with an annual turnover exceeding £500,000.


Please Note: We will send you details of the online platform and login details prior to the event.
