New ShipperHQ Landed Cost Engine and Cross-Border Partnerships Help Merchants Unlock New International Markets  

International cross-border commerce presents a massive new area of growth for eCommerce merchants. According to recent studies, 70% of online shoppers buy internationally and every seventh online purchase is now a cross-border transaction.*

To put it mildly, cross-border commerce represents a massive opportunity for eCommerce merchants. You’ve got potential customers around the globe, demand is growing, your competitors are doing it—so what’s stopping you?

Typically, one of the biggest challenges standing in the way of taking advantage of selling internationally is confusion and uncertainty on customs, duties and taxes.

From a customer’s point of view, this challenge isn’t that shocking. After all, who wants to be hit with a surprise bill after you’ve placed an order online? It’s not a great customer experience.

But don’t fret merchants, ShipperHQ has hand-picked a cross-border solutions provider that addresses this exact challenge.

Whether you’ve been selling internationally for years, looking to accelerate sales to Europe from the US, or are just getting started and need a quick way to expand globally, ShipperHQ’s cross-border portfolio has you covered.

Through ShipperHQ’s new Marketplace partnerships, merchants no longer have to experience one-size-fits-all shipping solutions. Instead, they can assemble a powerful shipping tech stack and pick cross-border options that take care of a range of shipping needs.

Backed by British Airways, Zenda makes it easier than ever for merchants to send packages from the US to the UK and Europe at exceptional speed and value.
