Amazon Belgium will open a new logistics center in Antwerp at the end of this year, allowing European sellers to increase their sales and quickly reach millions of customers.
With the opening of this new logistics center, Amazon Belgium shows a clear commitment to improving compliance and reducing waiting times.
The great opportunity offered by being present on Amazon makes it the preferred Marketplace for most sellers and the place where most people decide to make their purchases.
Why sell on Amazon Belgium?
Amazon allows you to grow your business internationally no matter where you are located. This new opening of Amazon Belgium offers the possibility of reaching more customers and operating faster with logistical options such as Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).
Its good reputation will allow us to access millions of customers who trust Amazon to make their purchases safely, so customers will have fewer problems during the purchase processes and they will be more fluid.
Having a website is not necessary to start selling on Amazon, which favors a minimum initial investment.
The Amazon website is a great attraction for customers and can be used as a portal to reach millions of customers. If you have your own brand, that is, you sell as a Central Seller, you can create your own Store within Amazon.
This generates more information to the customer, who will be able to know what brand they are buying and see all the products you offer.
If you become part of Amazon’s exclusive sellers and receive the invitation to be part of Amazon Vendor, your products will be sold and shipped under Amazon’s name. This leads to increased customer confidence and therefore increased sales.
The option to get Amazon Prime is chosen by more than 100 million people. These buyers are loyal to the platform. To join Amazon Prime, these customers must pay an annual fee of €36 or €3.99 per month. Thus, they are customers who have Amazon as their first and only option when shopping.
On the other hand, it has a good SEO positioning in all products, so if you manage to optimize your listing correctly in order to appear in the Buy Box, your sales can increase considerably.
In this way, the profitability of your business on Amazon can be very positive and you can start achieving your first sales in just a couple of weeks.
If you choose FBA (Fullfilment by Amazon), Amazon will do all the work for you.
They will take care of the storage, packaging, shipping, return and also offer customer service, so no matter if you sell on Amazon Belgium or any other country Amazon offers, good service is guaranteed.
What do I need to sell on Amazon Belgium?
International listings help you expand internationally by creating and updating offers from a single store. It is important to synchronize prices based on the market you are targeting. You should also consider whether your business can operate in the local language. Amazon has tools for automated translation.
From Epinium, we do not recommend this option, as it is better for the translation to be carried out by a native, so that better concordance is generated with the searches of the users of the country.
In this way you can carry out your research by countries, if you sell in more than one, which will provide you with relevant information to better position your products.
Logistics for Amazon Seller
If you want to sell on Amazon Belgium as an Amazon Seller, you have the option of hiring one of the rates offered by Amazon to sell in other countries.
With the Paneuropean program you can choose the countries yourself for Amazon to distribute and store your inventory, according to customer demand and at no additional cost.
VAT and legislation
The legislative theme is the one that generates the most concern when starting to sell in another country through Amazon. This is where, mainly, VAT comes into play.
Amazon wants to help its commercial partners (Amazon Sellers) expand their business in Europe and make VAT compliance simple and profitable.
From Central Seller, in the “Reports” section under “Manage VAT”, they provide you with a set of steps where you can confirm what your company type is, the countries in which you want to obtain the VAT number and act as an intermediary when making the necessary processing.
Complementarily, it will also provide you with information on changes in VAT regulations and regulations. All countries have their own regulation related to the sale of products.
Therefore, you must also inform yourself and take into account laws such as intellectual property law, product safety, export controls, labeling or compliance with products, are also some of them.

Epinium’s platform has a set of facilities to manage your brand on Amazon.
If we talk about internationalization, the main facility is the possibility to manage all the accounts and marketplaces where you have a presence from a single platform. Where you can group markets or manage them independently, an option that Amazon does not offer.
