Cross Border Shipping (E-commerce)
Cross border solutions (E Commerce), generally involve a retailer in one country accepting orders from a buyer in another. The retailer needs to have the means to price the transaction for the buyer, take payment and to deliver the goods purchased to the buyer in their country without surprise customs tariffs and taxes charged on delivery.
The goal of cross border solutions is to replicate the type of experience buyers are accustomed to when buying from domestic retailers. With an international transaction, there are new hurdles to consider including foreign exchange rates, payment methods, customs clearance, associated tariffs, and more complex transportation routes and vendors to manage.
