Retail Partner Program
Do you, like many UK retailers, want to serve overseas customers but worry that the hassle involved or the cost of shipping means that it is not worthwhile? Or perhaps you offer international shipping but customers find it too expensive or unreliable. If that has been your experience forward2me can help!
We are not merely another shipping company. By partnering with us we can enable you to serve customers around the world without costing you a penny in extra shipping costs or carrying the risk of loss or damage. Nor would you have to deal with any export paperwork or extra collections from an international courier company. In fact you can carry on without changing anything about how you dispatch or ship your goods while benefiting from a vastly increased marketplace.
How does it work?
At or before checkout you invite your overseas customers to open a free account with forward2me with a link to our home page. We give them their own UK address. When they checkout on your store they enter their new UK address as the shipping address, you arrange UK delivery as usual and we take care of the rest.
When the goods arrive your customer pays us for the international leg of the shipping. We often dispatch the same day. Because we ship such large volumes with the major international couriers (DHL, UPS, TNT, DPD) we can offer very competitive prices on express, tracked shipping to over 200 countries.
What’s more we’ll even pay you £10 for every new customer that ships something by tracked courier (affiliate terms and conditions apply) and promote you in our newsletter to many thousands of overseas buyers.
Is it reliable?
We believe we offer the best quality forwarding service available anywhere in the world - an assertion backed up by the thousands of fully independent reviews by our customers on Feefo. We are very proud to have such a high approval rating and to be a gold trusted merchant yet again this year.
Furthermore customers can choose to insure their goods at a very reasonable cost so if the worst does happen they are fully reimbursed. Best of all none of this adds to your costs or risks.
What about returns?
If a customer needs to return a product we can help them arrange this, but either way they are responsible for the cost of getting goods back to the UK, not you.
Customers buying from you will often also be buying from other UK stores and we can combine their purchases into one parcel for onward shipping delivering big savings compared to shipping everything separately.
Starting is simple
All you need to do is include information about forward2me’s service and a link to our homepage (www.forward2me.com) on the relevant pages of your site (such as delivery and checkout pages). For examples of what some existing partners see:
