The UK Goverment supports exporting via eCommerce via its Sell online with UKTI's E-Exporting Programme

This contains a number of steps including meeting, resources and the following:

  • arrange a free meeting through your local UKTI office to get expert international trade advice and support, and access to UKTI’s global network of contacts
  • meet an e-commerce adviser where relevant to help develop and implement an international online strategy
  • set up on e-marketplaces quickly and also identify new e-marketplaces around the world
  • access better than commercial rates to list on some e-marketplaces, including lower commission fees and ‘try for free’ periods
  • access the E-Commerce Business Network, a group of over 180 companies offering advice and support to online exporters

Although advice is great the preferential rates for marketplaces is a great aid to get started.

There are some good case studies like Tangle Teezer with success exporting to Germany and China. DTI were able to help with the trade barriers to China.
