Our Business Model
We buy from suppliers in North America, Great Britain, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand – distributing in the UK and Europe to consumers, and wholesale/dropshipping services for resellers.
Our logistics, customer services, advertising and market-analysis tools are a cost-effective and risk-managed, direct route to market. We maintain compliance with local legislation and taxes – and provide management and feedback on regulation changes and local demand trends.
What We Offer Suppliers
Regulation and tax-compliant, VAT registered shipping – through our bonded warehouses in the US, UK and Europe – with no relabelling requirements or extra import-tax charges for international customers.
Local telephone support in 5 European languages. Email support in most European languages. Over 600 translated FAQ responses. A very high customer feedback rating on all channels for accuracy, efficiency and service.
We budget 20% of our sales revenue for brand marketing; actively encourage online product feedback and reviews; and invest in brand advertising through our network of online partners, advertising and editorial contacts in UK newspapers and magazines.
We generate unique, independent editorial to broadcast daily marketing campaigns through online channels, articles, public relations, our growing email database, and print publishing partners.
Our team of 12 programmers work on logistics- efficiency, data accuracy, security and search engine optimisation. We work with all data formats: spreadsheets, APIs and EDI etc. Our platform contains over 60,000 products and processes thousand of orders each day.
Monitoring & Analytics
We monitor your product listings, compliance, prices and brand value on Google, Amazon and Ebay; optimising local pricing, for sustainable margins and customer value. We honour MAP price policies, price-match other value-adding resellers, and help with research to identify and minimise anonymous unauthorised resellers.

Please email your latest product data, available PDF marketing material, graphics, certifications, terms & conditions, ordering contact, accounts contact and payment details to our buying team…
We will assign a Buyer from the team, specialising in your segment. They will gather, review and import all the information into our systems; analyse the expected demand; plan the logistics with you; and manage promotion campaigns – to tailor your message for each country.
