Webinar: VAT & International Shipping Options

August 17, 2015

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST

Are you using Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)? How about eBay’s Global Shipping Program (GSP). Do you have orders that you ship directly to Europe?

If your response to any of the above questions is yes, then Wednesday’s webinar is for you.

During Wednesday’s webinar, we’re teaming up with global consulting company Meridian to help you, as retailers, understand the value-added tax (VAT) implications of popular shipping and fulfillment options for international orders.

Expanding sales internationally is a hot initiative among many North American retailers, but the list of considerations can be daunting — such as navigating foreign taxes, designing an efficient fulfillment strategy and hurdling cultural nuances.

Zdenek Vajnlich, Meridian’s senior VAT manager, and Delisa Reavis, ChannelAdvisor’s marketing director, will explain how the Agile Cross-Border Trade framework can simplify selling internationally. They’ll also compare tax obligations related to Amazon’s FBA and eBay’s GSP as well as provide avenues for sellers to ensure compliance with tax obligations in other countries.


This is a must-attend webinar for all retailers currently selling abroad or interested in expanding internationally. Sign up today!
