Hi
I am new on here just joined, so unsure if I am on the right section.

I just have a quick question
I have tried a few Companies and Ebay US to purchase products
BUT I am finding that a lot of people and companies do not export to the UK.
So my question is Does anyone know why ?

Thanks for any help

Hi silaba,

Can you share with us what specific products are you trying to export to the UK? Charges depend on product classification, and suppliers need to consider their profits on top of the expenses. There are also items that are prohibited to be sent. :)

Hi
I was looking at wholesale sweatshirts etc. on ebay US and I emailed a few companies
All said the same thing Do not supply UK
I was just wondering why ?

Also does this apply to other items. If so not worth spending time looking to import from US.

Thanks

Hi Silaba,

I think it just so happened that you encountered suppliers who do not sell internationally. There are many suppliers who will readily ship to the UK or actually based in the UK.

I would be happy to help you find suitable suppliers for sweatshirts.

Are there other products you are interested in?

Talk to you soon!
