How to scale your international development and boost your ROI
We’ve partnered with our friends at Lengow to create a comprehensive white paper to guide you through online cross-border sales in Europe.
As the ecommerce industry becomes more global in nature, cross-border sales have seen a significant increase. According a recent UPS study, 24% of online shoppers have bought from foreign websites. By 2025, cross-border ecommerce is expected to reach $250 to $350 billion, with Europe accounting for 25% of this total.
It is now crucial for online retailers to look beyond their borders in this international context, in order to stay competitive. We published this white paper to help online retailers to successfully build their global brand awareness and international sales.
