Newport Online Seller Meetup 29/06

We had a really enjoyable evening yesterday with our Newport Online Seller Meetup. We had attendance from 20 businesses and they came from Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Newport. There were sellers already selling online on Marketplaces ( eBay & Amazon ) and Website and sellers who are exploring online avenue. Really mixed audience!

Our first speaker and sponsor of the event, Carsten from PlentymarketsUK gave us a really good insight in how to expand into Germany. There was really good tips on postage, product listings and payment. Here’s slide on expanding into Germany:

We rounded up the evening with me taking questions about Amazon FBA and Private labelling. There were few businesses attending who were already doing well with Amazon FBA so, I had opportunity to share some best practices. And for the rest they had good key points to take away on how to start selling with Amazon FBA.
