An ecommerce platform to support international expansion
There are many challenges involved in successfully shaping and delivering cross-border ecommerce. Selling into global markets requires merchants to overhaul their customer proposition, tailoring it to address the needs of local markets. Buying habits vary dramatically from country to country and so considerations such as accepting payment in the local market currency, logistics around fulfilment and delivery, and local customer service & returns should be carefully planned. Merchants looking to improve their international ecommerce offering, or to start selling internationally for the first time, should select an ecommerce partner and platform that enables them to deliver a fully internationalised experience that engages local customers, increases exposure and ultimately drives revenues, increasing market share.
