Is there already competition? We list them and give you advice on positioning and pricing

Ecommerce product testing

Is your product the first of its kind? Then we estimate whether there will be demand at all, given the culture and local habits.

 

We also look at import regulations and permissions that you should have in order to sell your product on that market. If you provide us with dimensions and weight, we look at warehousing and shipping costs and calculate the sales volume where you should switch from dropshipping to local fulfillment. This will give you all the info to decide.
