Product or service innovations

Datasync: The ultimate feature developed by empact to eliminate the enormous resources invested into the creation of API integrations or their maintenance. With empact’s Data Sync feature, there is no need for API integration any longer, which means that data can be received on our side seamlessly by only simple sales reports issued from any online shop or ERP system with no limitations.

VAT Reporting Tool: The perfect tool for auto reporting generation for eCommerce sellers who are acting with their own VAT numbers to reduce time &money resources as well as penalties for inaccurate/late reporting.

Console Service: Console service shipment provides the ultimate solution for cross-border sales to increase your conversion rate for direct sale rover with a value higher than 150 EUR per order. These days, there are 2 ways for the seller to ship orders- DDP terms which reduce their profits, or DDU terms which significantly reduce the conversion rate.
With empact’s console solution, the seller can create a console shipment of several orders that will be cleared as 1 shipment containing all your orders on behalf of empact with 0% VAT regardless of the value, and, upon clearance in Europe, each order will be domestically shipped to its destination. The outcome is:

  • Improved customer experience
  • Increased conversion rate
  • Reduce your shipping costs
  • Improved shipping time

B2B Offline: The perfect solution for traditional cross-border trade into Europe to enable B2B sales in door-to-door terms, eliminating the necessity to establish a local EU entity and having the benefit of selling as a local EU business with 0% VAT on importation.

Customer case study

A US-based Amazon seller faced a critical situation when their 40 ft container, with 1800 cartoons, got stuck in Germany due to new import restrictions for non-EU established companies. Despite having a valid German VAT number, the seller incurred demurrage fees of 4,000 EUR over 4 weeks. Without prior knowledge of the new regulations and lacking support from tax experts and shipping partners, the seller turned to empact for help. Our operations team arranged a solution, including T1 to the Netherlands, customs clearance with 0 VAT, offloading at a partner's fulfillment warehouse, and efficient coordination with Amazon FBA. This intervention saved the client a total of 19,000 EUR, showcasing how empact resolves critical issues and prevents unnecessary expenses for businesses.
