The USA is an established market for ecommerce business due to obvious reasons of development, currency values, and technological advancements. Several entrepreneurs are based in India who wants to sell their products in the USA to earn more profit.
In contrast to the old days, now it is possible to sell everywhere globally, even when you are not physically present in that region. Well, that’s what ecommerce is all about. Your business is not limited to your company’s geographic location, and everyone in the world in your potential buyer if you allow them access to your products.
To serve the customers in the USA, you can establish your business in the USA while living in India. You can have a business based out of India serving orders of the USA. The mode of business conduction that you like to adopt is that of your choice.
How Can I Sell Products Online In The USA?
Register to global marketplaces:
Call it the easiest option to start selling your products to all the geographic locations of your choice. Register your business on the global marketplaces like Amazon, Alibaba, and a few others to unlock global selling options. You can centrally manage your inventory and restrict the visibility of some of your listings in the region where you are not selling.
The major benefit of partnering with ecommerce marketplaces is you don’t have to get the import/export registration done for your business at an individual level. When you enable the option of global selling, you will be signing a virtual contract with the marketplace. We recommend you refer to that contract to gain an understanding of the import/export rules that can protect your business and enable easy movement of orders.
While living in India, Amazon is the best ecommerce marketplace that can help you with global selling. You can serve three countries at a time from a single account.
To fulfill the order, you have two options viz. Shipping the product from India when you receive the order or sending it in the US’s warehouse and let FBA take care of the rest. The latter option is convenient and value-adding for customers as you can offer lightening-fast delivery of the products, while the former option will have control over your In-stock inventory.
Partner with the order shipment services:
Serving your potential buyers via marketplace or your website is totally your choice, but don’t forget it’s all about the timing. The courier partners can pick the product from your location and deliver it directly to your customers. It will serve well for local orders but will take 10-15 days roughly to fulfill your orders from the USA.
There are courier partners that offer the end to end order fulfillment services. By partnering with them, you can serve your orders, just like you do with FBA. You will create the threshold limit of your In-stock products depending upon the count of which you will be sent to the US’s warehouse of that shipping company. When you receive an order at your store, a receipt will be sent to your shipping carrier as well. They will pick, pack, and ship your products on behalf of fixed order fulfillment fees. Though you will be charged for space, your inventory will be occupying in the warehouse of your shipment partner. You will be able to fulfill your orders at the earliest. Even when your business is based in India, you will be serving customers in the expected timeline.
Network with local wholesalers:
You can network with dropshipping businesses in the USA and associate with the local wholesalers. Suppose some of the local businesses in the USA like to sell your products. In that case, the deal can be fairly profitable for you, as you will be selling the bulk quantity and get the deal done at once. In this case, you need not bother about frequent shipping and order fulfillment tasks and can improve the net ROI of your business by networking with more such businesses.
