Reading the news this morning via Google Reader, I noticed some articles on the growth and power of international ecommerce. One of my favorite e-commerce bloggers’ is, ChannelAdvisor CEO, Scot Wingo. Scott posted an article about international ecommerce. Integracore has been very successful at help international companies bring their ecommerce operations to the United States. For instance, a web start up in the United Kingdom might want to reach the United States market after proving their concept in their home market. Integracore allows them to enter the US market with very little risk. The ChannelAdvisor blog recommends the following:
“Some key things to think about:
Language Barriers—Would you buy a product if you couldn’t understand the product description? Knowing the local lingo is key to international sales.
Shipping Barriers—There is a lot more to think about than whether you’ll send a product via air or ground, like should you open a fulfillment center, will you accept returns, how will you communicate delivery information to the buyer, etc.
Financial & Legal Barriers—Things have gotten a bit easier since the Euro, however outside of the EU there are tons of different currencies, and that’s just scratching the surface of the financial juggernaut that is selling abroad. There’s also import taxes, VAT, local regulations and consumer protection laws to consider. “
Naturally, Integracore can help you shatter these shipping barriers. Additionally, we can help you with the other “opportunities” as well through our proven partner network. Call 800-245-8142 or email sales (at) integracoreatlanta.com us for more information
