International ecommerce sales are set to soar to $1 trillion in 2020, up from $230 billion in 2014 and will then account for nearly 30% of all ecommerce sales, according to Accenture. Studies have shown that 25% of shoppers from North America have bought items online from other countries, compared to 23% of German shoppers and 15% of French shoppers making cross border purchases. International shipping may be becoming increasingly popular with consumers but businesses that take advantage of the global ecommerce markets often get hit with expensive and time consuming procedures when navigating the confusing world of international shipping regimes.
The confusing and expensive procedures have shown that retailers are becoming reluctant to expand their reach over international borders. As of 2013 only 25% of EU retailers sell their products cross-border, a smaller number than in 2011. Whether you are shipping to the USA, Ukraine or Uganda, each country has their own particular customs procedures along with substantial shipping charges depending on what area you are delivering to. More and more small businesses are using modern ecommerce to expand their reach over international borders but the common obstacles of customs and international delivery charges can become increasingly difficult for small businesses to navigate.
Some common problems encountered by businesses trying to ship aboard include: regulatory issues, payment processing, international logistics and expensive delivery charges.
