FAQs and useful information

The following are some frequently asked questions and useful information about international eCommerce shipping and the services we provide:

How easy is it to track a parcel internationally?

Very easy. We use the latest technology and tracking options, with fast and accurate scanning at various points of delivery. You can see every step of the way by simply opening the app and entering your tracking number. From here you can see every detail about your package and monitor the shipping process as it unfolds.

How do I ship internationally with eCommerce?

You need to be selective with your products when shipping internationally. While we are capable of sending parcels all over the world there are specific target countries that will block certain imports if they do not meet customs standards – or otherwise outright forbid. For example, sending a parcel to a country such as Iran will mean you must comply with very strict customs and moral laws before shipping, so you could never ship something like alcohol. Similarly, countries such as Australia and New Zealand have delicate ecosystems and forbid certain types of food. If you are unsure about sending items then your account manager can help you.

How do I ship my products from home?

Many eCommerce providers operate from home and it is possible to arrange collection from a regular address if you do not have a dedicated warehouse or other business space. We can collect your parcels and ship them internationally as we normally would when visiting larger business premises.

What is the cheapest way to ship internationally?

If you want to ship internationally you can find good shipping rates from many providers. However, these rates will adjust depending on the size of your items and the class of mail you choose. You also have the burden of complying with shipping requirements and mailing the items yourself. There is a time cost with all of these tasks, so the overall cheapest way to ship internationally is to outsource the parcels to a reliable mail handler such as The Delivery Group.

I sell on eBay, can you still help me?

Yes. We offer a specific eBay courier service that operates in a similar way to our other eCommerce services. eBay does not currently offer a courier service and we can provide a fast alternative solution for this if you do not currently have a website or dedicated online store.

How can I offer free shipping for my customers?

We offer competitive rates that are very flexible, so depending on your margins you may be able to offer free shipping to customers as standard. When factoring in your delivery budget free shipping can seem less appealing as a business owner, however many customers not only expect this but demand it. Our team are happy to offer flexible rates that are bespoke to your needs, which can help keep overall costs down. However, a simpler way to do this is by asking for a minimum order amount from your customers to qualify for free shipping.

If I ship to a developing country, how can I be sure I receive an ethical service?

Our service commits to recognising the signs of modern slavery throughout all of the supply chains. The values that guide our operations mean we consistently update our practices and do our utmost to address the gender pay gap across the business. Another of our ethical practices concerns the environment, and we continue to reduce our energy use within the company. Throughout our staff, we provide extensive training and awareness regarding our ethical approach. As part of our technical processes, we also maintain a commitment to privacy and cybersecurity.
