How to fulfil EU orders WITHOUT PAN EU


Hello, we are a UK based seller, that uses EFN to fulfill orders across all EU marketplaces (we don’t have stock in any EU warehouse).

Due to Brexit, from Jan 1st the EFN will be abolished and we are not sure what our options are besides PAN EU which we don’t want to do.

We were wondering if this could be possible:

  1. Registering for VAT in 1 country, say Germany or Spain, in order to send stock to a fulfilment centre there (directly from China)
  2. Using Multi-Country inventory, selecting only 1 EU country to have inventory in, to fulfil EU orders from that warehouse?

Please could you advise? Your help would be hugely appreciated!

Thank you
