The metrics confirm it. 57% of global online shoppers purchase from overseas retailers. Cross-border sales have achieved a 220% gain (to US $627 billion) in just five years. But although cross-border commerce is a logical expansion strategy, moving into new global markets is a complex undertaking.
In this super succinct and actionable session, we will touch on the following themes and lay the groundwork for you to take the next step:
Optimize global payments: Offer preferred currency, payment methods and customer services while reducing FX rates, decline rates and generating customer loyalty.
Collect customer data: Comply with local data privacy laws and harvest data that drives customer acquisition and lifestyle value.
Charge the correct taxes: 43% of CFO survey respondents rank taxes on digital services among the top three policies impacting their businesses.
Fulfillment Strategies: Partner with local providers, optimize reverse logistics without leaving taxes and duties from returns on the table, build repackaging procedures and reduce operational burden on labeling and re-routing inventory
Keep up with compliance: Compliance is an ongoing, ever-changing beast that must be closely watched by experts. Do you want to invest in an in-house team to do this, or will outsourcing be more effective?
