Which countries can I sell in?

On DaWanda, you can sell your products on the English DaWanda website, as well as the German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Polish sites. To list your products on other sites, all you need to do is to include your product descriptions in those languages, and your listings will automatically appear on the relevant site.

 
When listing in other languages, you also need to adjust your shipping details so that buyers from other countries can purchase your products. You can create a shipping profile for each individual country (e.g  France, Portugal, USA etc.) or for a region (e.g. EU, Europe, Asia, North America etc.).
To sell internationally, you should also include a translation of your shop description, shop categories and shop window in the languages that you list your products in. You can read about how to do this here.

 
Please keep in mind that, when you advertise your products in other languages, your buyers will ask questions in those languages and expect a response in that language too. So please ensure that you can offer effective customer service in the languages that you select for DaWanda.
