Subscription Box Shipping
The subscription box industry is currently experiencing rapid growth and increased competition. The trend that began in the US has recently spread across the globe and has begun to emerge as a popular choice for European consumers.
The global subscription eCommerce market was valued at $13 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to reach $478 billion by 2025 displaying an explosive CAGR of 68.0% over the forecast period (2019-2025).
A subscription box is a recurring package of products from a brand. Many subscription boxes are delivered on a monthly basis, though the regularity can vary. The package contents are sector-oriented. On every delivery date, new products are delivered to the consumer, bringing excitement and surprise to the subscription box experience.
Customer satisfaction is a direct correlation with customer retention, which in turn, is the key to a successful subscription box business model. At RedSky Europe, we are committed to shipping orders accurately and efficiently while delivering them on time.
Our experienced team can remove the hassle and expense of order fulfilment, allowing you to focus on increasing customer acquisition, reducing subscriber churn, and growing your brand on a global level.
The European subscription market
Europe is a lucrative marketplace, giving retailers access to over 550 million people. The trend that started off in the US, has recently moved into the European market and has resulted in huge successes for subscription boxes.
For US companies looking to sell in Europe, working with an eCommerce fulfilment company such as RedSky is an easy and stress-free option. Subscription boxes that are being shipped from the US to Europe are regularly caught in customs. There are then high taxes being imposed, making the process difficult and lengthy.
These barriers to a quick and smooth process result in slow delivery and dissatisfied consumers. This is where an eCommerce fulfilment company such as RedSky can assist online retailers. Retailers can use the expertise and facilities of an order fulfilment company based in Europe, in order to avoid high taxes and long delays.
Since COVID-19, almost 50% of all online sales in Euro have been from consumers who have never before ordered online. European consumers are purchasing online at a much higher rate than ever before. As a result, right now is the perfect time for US brands to bring their subscription box model to Europe.
