If you want to expand your US based ecommerce business into the European Union; the chances are you will target the UK first. The premise for doing this is sound. There will be no language barriers to cross as both US sellers and UK buyers have English as their first language. Whilst that may be the case, there are important differences in the two markets, which may affect your successful expansion, if you fail to take account of them or don’t even know they exist.
