Drop shipping to the USA?


I am based in the UK and my products are being manufactured in China. Can I sell and deliver straight to a customer in the USA?


Hi there,

I hope you get an answer to your question shortly.

In the meantime, I recommend also looking at the Institute of Export and International Trade’s helpdesk for more specific advice:

Hi there!

Absolutely this is possible! To make things as simple as possible for the buyer, you can register your UK company as an Importer of Record in the US, which makes the trade the same for your client as if they were buying from a US company. Alternatively we can arrange clearance in the name of the US buyer and charge import duties and taxes to them.

There may be some restrictions on importing goods to the US, depending on what the commodity is? If you can advise, we can let you know of any issues that you may face, if any.
