Open-an-Amazon-Store-in-Croatia.jpgPlacing a business on Amazon, the largest online retail company in the world according to the registered profit, can be an excellent expansion opportunity for investors in Croatia. There are numerous internet users who prefer the online purchases today, therefore, investing in this field can be the key to success. Companies interested in expanding their portfolios can set up their stores on Amazon, a matter where our company formation agents in Croatia can help with documents preparation.

Amazon in numbers

Establish in the USA in 1994, Amazon became the largest online mall which serves customers worldwide through the representative offices placed in numerous countries and varied products and services with quality guaranteed. At the beginning, Amazon was an online bookshop but later decided to expand the areas of interest and focus on selling different items like audiobooks, video games, software, electronics, furniture, clothes, jewelry and even food by acquiring in 2017 Whole Foods Market, an American supermarket chain. The online platform registered around $316 billion in 2016, a number which is expected to be surpassed by the end of 2017 with the help of the shopping sessions dedicated to this time of the year. Numerous companies or entrepreneurs register on a daily basis on Amazon, the account number being over 300 at this moment. One should know that for placing his/her activities on Amazon, a registered limited liability company is necessary, in order to issue invoices and legally sell the products and services. If you already have a registered company, you can work on a website to promote your services and then focus on how your company can generate revenues on Amazon.

Steps in opening an Amazon store in Croatia

Before setting up an Amazon shop in Croatia, one must register a limited liability company with a minimum share capital of about EUR 2,500 or HRK 20,000 deposited in a Croatian bank account. Even one person can be registered as the owner or shareholder of an LLC in Croatia if all the requirements in this matter are respected. As soon as the incorporation certificate is issued, alongside with the special licenses and permits which allows you to activate in the chosen domain, you can develop your store on Amazon. Our Croatian team of company formation consultants is at your disposal with information and support when registering an LLC in Croatia, in order to set up the Amazon store.

Payment methods for your Amazon store in Croatia

Just like for any type of online shop, one must set up the payment methods for the Amazon store, and provide to the customers the possibility of purchasing the wanted items. A PayPal account can be a suitable option, as it is a well-known trustworthy payment platform worldwide. A business PayPal account is easy to set up and can be connected to your business bank account, meaning that the money for the sold items can be settled instantly through your PayPal.
Another payment method which is extensively used is the merchant account which allows clients to pay for the products by using debit and credit cards. This is also linked to the bank account of your business, and furthermore, it is a secured payment method. Please consider that for opening an Amazon store in Croatia, one needs to offer to the clients the possibility of viewing the items in their own currency, as the business can be promoted in many countries around the world.

Choosing Amazon for business development

Even if your company in Croatia is successful, the business direction can expand even more by creating an Amazon store. This will help entrepreneurs gain visibility and awareness on the international market, and also future important clients. Once you have decided for opening an Amazon store, you should also consider the necessity of creating or renting a storage place from which your goods will be shipped. Foreign business persons interested in opening a shop on the largest online retail platform can also direct the attention to the local workforce for the main departments in the company: human resources, marketing, financial, delivery and so on. We remind that the Croatian authorities encourage the foreign investments, whether direct or indirect, by offering important and beneficial incentives related to the tax regime in the business environment.
