Consignment Sales in Europe

Benefits of Doing Consignment Sales in Europe

When for­eign sup­pli­ers start sell­ing in the Euro­pean coun­tries, they only import the prod­ucts accord­ing to the cus­tomer require­ments lead­ing to a waste of time and money.

Con­sign­ment sales ser­vice lets the sup­pli­ers sell their goods in Europe with­out hav­ing a legal Euro­pean enti­ty and ware­house. The prod­ucts are held in Europe on a con­sign­ment basis and are direct­ly shipped to the cus­tomers from their dis­tri­b­u­tion centers.

The sup­pli­er owns the goods till the time they are sold to the con­sumers and becomes the con­sign­or. CAPLINQ ser­vices let you hold the prod­ucts as a con­signee, and Euro­pean clients become the buy­ers. This ser­vice saves both time and over­head costs while pro­vid­ing faster deliv­er­ies to the clients.
