During this 3-hour workshop, we'll be covering 5 main topics with Q&A sessions at the end of each. The last part of the workshop will be dedicated to a 30-minute wrap-up Q&A.
3:00 pm - How to Pass Logistics
Before you start the game of global expansion, an FBA / e-commerce seller must know how they want their goods to be transported. We will be discussing the importance considering door-to-door logistic solutions and what the best movement for your goods is from the origin country to the import destination.
3:30 pm - Avoid Being Charged with Product Compliance Penalties
You’ve passed Logistics! Ensure that you have chosen the right products for your new target market. We will explore the importance of product compliance and how specific markets have different needs and ways of doing things.
4:00 pm - Free Parking with Zee’s Partners
The power of collaboration is strong within Zee. We will discuss Zee’s valued partners and the journey it takes to reach global expansion. With a little help from their friends, one lucky audience member will receive a seller surprise!
4:30 pm - Don’t Leave Import Compliance to Chance
Adherence to compliance policies and regulations can be the difference between a smooth shipment and a failed and returned one. We will highlight how entity compliance trumps product compliance. If your business is not compliant for import, your products certainly won’t be!
5:00 pm - Surprise Super Tax
Before you’ve completed one rotation on the board of global expansion, don’t forget tax compliance! To enable the successful expansion of your e-commerce empire, different markets impose different import VATs on goods when they pass through customs. We will explain how to pay and to reclaim your import VAT correctly.
5:30 pm - Q&A Sessions
Solve all your tax and logistics questions with the help of these field experts. Ask away! They'll be more than glad to expand on the small details that might have been left lingering vaguely.
