    I'm looking for person living and speaking in German language to help me run my shop based on dropshipping with over 7k products, such as Lacoste, Diesel, Armani, Michel Kors, Nike, Beats etc. Delivery is from US and is automatically connected to my partners mainly from Amazon. I will need help with:

    - help me with translations (around 2 pieces of A4 pages and it looks like this: "english","german", ie "Home","Hause")
    - talk to advertisers (Bild, AOL, etc)
    - answer to customers emails


    Shop is already online and running on magento.

    I can't help you out with that but I can give you a heads up with shipping to Germany.

    If its shipped with USPS it will end up with the Deutsche Post AG - the German Postal Service.

    Some shipments will go straight to the recipient but most will end up at the nearest Customs station to the recipients home address which may be only 10 km away but could be a lot farther. In some instances more like 50 clicks.

    The recipient will receive a nice post card from the postal service stating to come and pick up his/her goods. That kinda pisses people off already, especially if they have to drive 50 km to get there.

    Once there, the customs official will of course open the package to determine value, look at the declared value, what was declared and may, if he is good, check for authenticity.

    Since they know that everyone cheats on declared value, he may ask to see the proof of payment - usually a printout of the paypal transfer, CC statement wire etc.

    Bad luck if the recipient didn't bring that. But hey, tomorrow is another day.

    If its shipped with EMS things are getting worse. EMS is notorious for collecting Euro 40 for clearance, brokerage and other BS.

    Lets not talk about pricing for small shipments with FEDEX or DHL

    Hey, thanks for info, but there's a workaround for everything. Whether you can sell overseas products depends only on your IQ and cleverness :)
