Why sell with Pan-European FBA?

Save on your fulfilment costs
You are only required to have a single VAT number with Pan-European FBA through Call-Off Stock (COS)
COS works by leveraging an EU-wide VAT legislative simplification which allows this type of transaction to occur, so long as certain requirements are met. You are only required to have a single VAT Registration Number (VRN) in either Germany, France, Italy or Spain to enable additional local storage for eligible ASINs in any of these countries.
