European Expansion Accelerator
Sell internationally with just a few clicks
Sell your products internationally using Amazon's brand new solution: the European Expansion Accelerator. The European Expansion Accelerator is a free automatic expansion solution that creates data sheets, sets prices, configures shipping settings and models, and enrols your products in logistics programmes in the stores where you choose to expand.
If you have already signed up for a professional selling plan and sell in at least one Amazon Europe store, a few clicks is all it takes to get started:
1. Choose stores to expand into 2. Accept the terms and conditions of international sale 3. Click on the 'Start Expansion' button
With just one account, you can reach customers all across Europe through our five European marketplaces (Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.fr, Amazon.de, Amazon.it and Amazon.es). You can also manage all your listings and inventory in Europe.
Boost your sales with new opportunities
With more than 30 product groups available, you can sell a huge amount of items on Amazon in Europe. Take advantage of European peak periods by honing your strategy using our European holiday selling calendar.
If you sell goods in any European country, it is likely that you will be required to register for Value Added Tax (VAT). VAT is a tax in Europe on consumer spending. Our solution providers can help make your VAT registration straightforward and uncomplicated. Amazon accepts payment in many currencies and pays you in your local currency to streamline processing.
