e-Exporting Programme

An e-marketplace is an online location that provides a platform for companies of all sizes to do business through e-commerce. Popular e-marketplaces include Amazon, Tmall and eBay. UKTI have identified over 400 e-marketplaces worldwide.

By selling through an e-marketplace UK companies can:
  • find new customers
  • analyse data on what consumers are searching for
  • build awareness of their brands

UK companies currently trading successfully on e-marketplaces include Burberry, Topshop, Marks and Spencer, Karen Millen, Barbour and Fred Perry.
