The Department for International Trade's (DIT's) E-Exporting Programme helps UK companies export their products via e-commerce.
What is the E-Exporting Programme?
The E-Exporting Programme provides support for UK companies looking to sell their products to international consumers through global online marketplaces.
The programme provides support to companies of any size who are:
- new to exporting through e-commerce
- experienced and looking to expand into new markets
Services provided by the programme
Our E-Commerce Advisers provide one-to-one support, tailored to your specific challenges. They can help with everything from developing an e-commerce strategy and data-driven market research, to internationalising your website.
DIT has partnered with many global marketplaces to maximise opportunities for UK companies. 40% of international online transactions will take place on global marketplaces by 2020 and they are widely regarded as a major opportunity for businesses looking to expand into new markets (source: Statista).
