BlueSnap announced today a partnership with ecommerce software provider iGlobal Stores, according to a BlueSnap release. Now, through iGlobal’s integrated checkout page, merchants can automatically calculate cross-border tax and shipping fees, lower costs of logistics and meet legal obligations, all while localizing the checkout experience in 180+ countries.
Only 27 percent of U.S. ecommerce merchants are set up to sell internationally, according to the Multichannel Merchant’s MCM Outlook 2014 Survey. The BlueSnap-iGlobal partnership will serve to “help merchants overcome the barriers to international commerce and beat competitors to untapped markets.”
In addition to an integrated checkout page with BlueSnap to allow for local checkouts in 180 countries, 30 languages, and 60+ currencies, iGlobal also has its own logic engine that recognizes restricted items and brand relationships violations so merchants can dodge potential legal issues.
“Merchants don’t realize how complex payments and logistics can become when they move into the international arena,” said Clint Reid, President of iGlobal. “Our partnership with BlueSnap allows us to better minimize the difficulties surrounding global eCommerce and ultimately help merchants turn more shoppers into buyers. This is a simple integration that can eliminate an enormous number of roadblocks for online sellers.”
