Selling overseas has never been so easy
Cross-border e-commerce is ahead of domestic sales
10 years of growth
Online sales in the domestic markets of the European Union and the United States will continue to grow for another 10 years or so, after which they will be at a constant level. So where to look for development opportunities? Asia and Africa are waiting.
Cross-border sales are growing
Experts predict that cross-border e-commerce will overtake sales in domestic markets, achieving annual growth of 17% in 2017-2022. For comparison, the annual growth rate of online sales in domestic markets for the same period is expected to amount to 12% * (The Explosive Growth of Cross-Border E-commerce, CBCOMMERCE).
Some simple advice
Organize your resources before venturing out into the world
Aim high, but don't forget the basics. Start by preparing a solid technological foundation on which you will be able to build a global brand.
Go back to the basics
Before you set out to conquer the world, take a look at your business and think about what you can improve in it. What is customer service like in your e-commerce? Did you take care of payment, return policy and fast shipping? How do you present yourself against the competition? Take care of the basics. In a moment you can compete with the best in the world.
Don't start running until you've learned to walk
If you've never been selling in foreign markets, don't jump into the deep end. Take time to learn about the challenges of cross-board e-commerce. Start by selling a few of the most popular products that are ready to ship. Be mindful and learn from your mistakes.
Know your customers
The Internet opens the way to customers from all over the world. But knocking on 8 billion doors at the same time in the hope that someone will be interested in your offer is not the best idea. Act strategically - choose the markets where your business has the best chance of success. Analyze and learn about the countries you want to enter - thanks to this you will better understand the needs of your future customers, their purchasing habits and the prices they are ready to pay for your products.
Learn about international law
Cross-border sales require knowledge of international trade regulations. Find out about customs, duties and taxes in the countries where you want to sell. Also plan how you will deliver your products - international or drop shipping will be a better choice?
Measure your progress
Monitor your e-commerce traffic and check if your customers behave according to your expectations. Use tools that will allow you to measure whether you are achieving your goals. If necessary, make modifications to your strategy. And measure your results again.

While we can’t influence your products, we can take care of the flow of information about them to let you manage your sales, marketing, logistics and finances in a clear and simple way.

Differences are a reason to grow
What works in the domestic market doesn’t necessarily work abroad
Every market is different. When you take an e-commerce business overseas, you have to make sure a lot of things are in place, from the legal requirements, payment and shipping methods, to a specific message tailored to the local shopping culture.
Do you have to worry about all of these things personally? No. We have solid experience growing e-commerce businesses in new overseas markets, and we’re happy to use it to help your business. We work with:
