Our Revamped Worldwide Dropshipping Programme

Effective: 18th October 2021 onwards

In order to provide our customers with the choice of ordering products from outside the UK – we are pleased to announce a worldwide delivery service by Artisan Furniture. This service will cover Europe as well as the rest of the World. Europe will be covered by road while rest of the world will be covered by Air.

Please find below the other terms of this arrangement.

  • At the time of placing the order you can select the country where you want the product to be delivered.
  • The list of available countries is as below and will be shown at the time of checkout as well.
  • Certain products might not qualify for international deliveries due to size restrictions.
  • International shipping cost would be calculated at the time of checkout. Free delivery does not apply.
  • EU Shipments by Road – Duties and taxes, if any, would be payable on top of the product and shipping cost and will be automatically calculated at checkout.
  • Road & Air service will be served by DHL

In an ever changing world where policies and world markets change as fast as the English weather, we are pleased to offer you a simplified dropshipping programme to cover all worldwide destinations. These include the EU, the Republic of Ireland and US among many, many others.

How our system works

  • No minimum order quantity is required
  • No minimum monthly spend is required 
  • VAT, when applicable, is paid at the checkout for UK & EU shipments
  • Custom Duties, when applicable, are paid at the checkout for EU shipments.
  • Hence, the recipient of the parcel receives a fully paid product inclusive of all charges. In logistics terms, it’s called Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) merchandise. This is applicable for all EU shipments.
  • For Non-EU shipments – VAT/Taxes or Duties will be calculated but not charged at checkout. In logistics terms it’s called Delivered at Place (DAP) merchandise.

No surprise for the recipient and no hidden charges, this is the Artisan way. You expect the expected and we forever aim to exceed these expectations.

Artisan obtained an IOSS (Import One Stop Shop) registration. This allows us to collect VAT for all EU markets and deposit it with the relevant authorities. Further, we can also collect duties and process shipments under DDP.

Here a few examples of how the system works.


A Wooden bedside with a value of £100 is being shipped to Malta. Our system will automatically calculate the prevailing Maltese VAT rate, 18% in this case. The system will also calculate the delivery cost, say £15. VAT applies on the final cost, which will be £100 (product cost), plus £15 (delivery cost), totaling £115. The VAT would be charged on top of this figure. The trade customer will pay £135.70 in this case inclusive of all costs, and can then add their own margins and sell it on.


A wooden cabinet with a value of £200 is being shipped to New York City. Our system will automatically calculate the prevailing duties applicable for the State of New York, 12.5% in this case. The system will also calculate the delivery cost, say £150. Duties apply on the final cost, which will be £200 (Product Cost), plus £150 (Delivery cost), totaling £350. The trade customer will be charging his/her customer £393.75 duties & taxes in this case inclusive of all costs, and can then add their own margins and sell it on. The trade customer would not be paying duties & taxes to Artisan as we are offering DAP for Non EU shipments until March 2022.

The below alert will appear at the time of check out against EU orders

Approximate duties & taxes are calculated here. This needs to be paid at the time of check out as we are offering DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) for all EU road shipments.

The below alert will appear at the time of check out against Non EU orders

Approximate duties & taxes are calculated here; however this needs to be paid directly by the recipient at the destination – DAP –  until March 2022

Like everything in dropshipping, there are pros and cons to the new process. Some of them are below- 


  1. You can live in almost any part of the world and become part of our Worldwide Dropshipping Programme. Similarly, worldwide deliveries are also supported.
  2. You don’t need to hold any stock.
  3. There is no minimum spend in any way when working with us.
  4. Duties and VATs will be calculated automatically when you checkout, letting the recipient receive a fully paid product inclusive of all charges.
  5. We use appropriate delivery means for optimum savings —economical road deliveries for Europe and premium air deliveries for the US and the rest of the world.


  1. This module only works with business to business transactions 
  2. Payments can only be made in Pound Sterling, even if you use an International card. The respective exchange rates will apply automatically.
  3. Every product will not be available for shipment in every country due to volume or regulatory restrictions.
  4. All our products are stored at Ipswich in the United Kingdom. Hence, delivery costs will vary depending on the proximity of the delivery point from the United Kingdom. 
  5. Returns are unfortunately not accepted for any international deliveries. In the unlikely event of the incorrect product being sent, or one that encounters transit damage or manufacturing defect, due refunds/discounts will be offered or we will ship you another one. This is decided on a case to case basis.
