Find out how you can grow international sales with online marketplaces – Register today

40% of all online sales will be take place through online marketplaces by 2020…

…making this a lucrative yet low-cost, low-risk route to find new sales growth – and diversify beyond just Amazon and eBay. Even so, for sales to thrive you have to choose the right online market places for your products and the right logistics partner at the outset.

That’s why we’re inviting you to this GFS Masterclass to take a deep-dive into the key online marketplaces around the world in both the biggest (i.e. US and China) as well as the fastest growing e-Commerce regions across the world. We’ll also equip you with knowledge regarding cross-border delivery and returns in those markets so you know what to look for and what to avoid when choosing your logistics partner.

Register now to build your strategy for success:

  • Where are the biggest and fastest growing eCommerce opportunities?
  • Which online marketplaces are in those markets, and what are the pros and cons of each?
  • How can you be confident your delivery and returns are not going to let you down?
  • Getting the groundwork done – how do you build a checklist to set you up for success?
