Your cross border partner
Benefit from our expert advice across VAT, customs and duty so you can deliver a standout retail experience to your customers. Working with Whistl gives you access to overseas postal operators and multiple carriers through one UK supplier.
Our international mail services range from a time sensitive, registered service for those wanting greater peace of mind to economy solutions when time is less critical.
We can collect your domestic and international mail, packets and parcels in a single collection and process through our tried and tested Whistl UK network.
Give your overseas customer a local experience
In the UK, consumers demand home delivery but delivery expectations differ country by country. Here at Whistl, we offer a range of delivery options to meet consumer expectations across the globe, not just focusing on the law in those countries, but what they culturally like to do. Our standard and premium tracked services means we get in touch with your customers when your parcel is in transit, so they are in control of their order, and can enjoy the experience!
Reach for the stars. Say hello to emerging markets
Consumer confidence for online retail is growing, especially from retailers abroad. Common markets where UK retailers appeal to internet savvy shoppers include USA, Australia, France, Germany and S. Ireland. Whereas emerging markets such as Russia, Brazil, China and Japan may be more complex to deal with but represent massive potential for UK retailer growth.
Delivering exceptional service with global insights
We help you explore established markets such as Europe, USA and Australia and gives you insight into emerging markets such as China, Russia and Japan.
Our global insights can help you shape your international offering and uncover markets which you thought were out of reach.
Let’s take Australia - they love UK brands and our opposite seasons means they can benefit from our home-grown bargains. Add the fact that their domestic delivery costs are similar to international shipping costs makes this country a fabulous market for UK e-retailers.
In established markets such as Spain, France and Germany there is no customs process so customers buying from the UK will get a similar experience to a domestic purchase.
The USA is already a big market for the UK (in the top 5) and USA duty threshold has just risen from $200 to $800 making us even more attractive.
Russia can be complex with changes in personal allowance levels but we have a solution to make the most of this lucrative emerging market.
