Amazon info on Brexit
Amazon recently published an overview of FAQs about Brexit. Among other things, it dealt with possible problems at the new customs border and the best shipping method when shipping through sellers. So that you don’t miss anything, we have compiled the most important information for you.
Problems at the customs border
The first question answered was whether problems at the new customs border would affect seller performance. Amazon has responded to these concerns by relaxing the thresholds for late deliveries, cancellations and order defects until January 31, 2021. Thereafter, it will be reviewed whether this will continue to be necessary. However, you should still make an effort to comply with all specifications.
Shipping method when shipped by seller
When asked about the best shipping method for shipping by sellers, Amazon responded by saying that it depends entirely on the product. Many shipping providers also offer a service where customs duties and VAT can be paid by the customer before delivery. When Amazon ships to the UK, you also need to be aware of the new VAT guidelines. If you have not yet read up on the new regulations, you can find an article on this topic here.
