By now you must be wondering what exactly it is that you stand to gain by using an overseas distributor for your company’s overseas efforts. There are enough benefits to compile a list, which we did. Here’s what you can expect from such a partnership and what distributors can provide.

  • All the shipping and storing necessities that come with selling overseas will be handled by the distributor. This allows you to focus your resources in other places as they take care of both the transport and warehouse storage for your products.
  • The distributor is basically your customer first and foremost as they are buying in bulk from you. Even though they are committing to the responsibility of selling overseas and distributing your products to buyers, they are where you sell directly in bulk meaning that you have direct line for getting your product out of storage and onto the market.
  • Usually, a product will require marketing and support, especially for new products or new markets (or both). A distributor will also be appointed as responsible for taking care of these necessities for the markets in which they are employed to distribute, meaning that you save a lot by not having to invest in another marketing campaign.
  • The distributor is familiarized with the market you are trying to sell in and will use their connections and partnerships to secure an advantageous position for your product in the market, backed by the top players in that particular market.
  • Other complications such as the ones that might occur based on different currencies also vanish since you sell directly to the distributor and it is their job to handle them so that they may sell your product.
  • Selling overseas will also require a hefty amount of paperwork as well as certain formalities to go alongside them. These are also taken care of by the distributor in relation with the various authorities and organizations involved in the process of selling your goods to the new market.
