Magento Merchants Now Have Access to i-parcel’s Cross Border Logistics and Technology Solutions
Magento US and UK merchants can sell to cross border consumers in 92 countries with the unique advantages of i-parcel’s logistics and technology platforms.
Magento Silver Industry Partner, i-parcel, LLC, has just released its Magento i-parcel Logistics Extension, allowing American and British ecommerce merchants the ability to increase their sales to 92 countries by offering a unique combination of logistics and value added technology services that are extremely attractive to consumers buying online.
Selling online to other countries is an exciting but daunting and difficult proposition, with markets outside of a merchant’s home country being exponentially larger than the merchant’s home market. Different availability levels of the home merchant’s products and prices outside of their home country create interesting and potentially lucrative opportunities. However, merchants are encumbered by a number of obstacles including resistance to and rejection of duty and tax COD fees at destination as well as high logistics prices (the biggest reason for abandonment-at-checkout for cross border purchases).
i-parcel operates a proprietary logistics and technology network which greatly reduces these barriers. i-parcel’s delivery network competes directly with the large, established parcel delivery companies on the simple concept that ecommerce merchants have their own commercial demands, which are not tailored for delivery companies that operate their networks based on B2B, 2-3 day DDU (Deliver Duty Unpaid) business capabilities. i-parcel offers fully landed costs (DDP) at checkout accompanied by rich, event based tracking and tracing options, and a 24/7/365 US based customer service team. All of this comes with ground breaking prices for the deliveries themselves, which stimulate checkouts instead of inhibiting them.
