LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — At CES 2016, Delaware-based global shipping service GoSend introduces GoSend Commerce, a simple program that will enable any-sized retailer to successfully transition into the global market. Expanding business internationally will help retailers increase sales and expand their customer-base by nearly 50%.
“Realizing that only about 1% of U.S. retailers sell internationally, we built our platform so retailers can expand their global market with all the tools and shipping rates that larger retailers have at their disposal,” said Richard Rodgers, CEO of GoSend. “This starts with our new international Shipping and Duty Calculator, which can easily be added into any retailer’s website.”
GoSend Shipping and Duty Calculator
A recent survey found that the #1 barrier to cross-border shopping was high delivery costs followed by uncertainty of customs taxes that may be incurred. The GoSend Shipping and Duty Calculator provides fully landed costs for global shipping, including the ability for consumers to select shipping options across multiple carriers and pay duty and tax up-front for no-delay delivery.
“We work with each retailer to determine the proper customs and tariff information so that we may automatically calculate an accurate landing cost for each customer no matter where they are located,” said Damir Konjevod CIO of GoSend. Customers will be aware of shipping and duty charges throughout the process and will be provided with payment assistance if needed.
Discounted Delivery Rates
Small to mid-size retailers that are currently unable to get large volume shipping discounts can now enjoy GoSend’s bulk shipping rates of up to 80% off and offer them to their customers, ultimately driving more global sales. GoSend works with top carriers and bulk consolidators including DHL, USPS and FedEx and provides tracking for the consumer through its automated online system with email and soon-to-be released mobile app notifications.
In addition to international shipping, GoSend Commerce provides retailers with global returns, e-commerce fulfilment, and logistics services, all within one simple platform.
