The Problem
Selling cross-border on marketplaces is resource-intensive and is
layered with operational complexities.

Establishing contracts with each marketplace.

Creating a store for your company to sell your products on marketplaces around the world requires you to establish terms and legal contracts with those marketplaces. The varying laws and regulations in different countries can make this challenging to navigate.

Technically integrating to each sales channel through an API.

Once you have established a contract with a marketplace, you will need to technically integrate your real-time inventory catalogue with their seller API. As different marketplaces will have different technical infrastructures, you will need to create several integrations.

Providing automated data management, localised content and customer service.

When you are set up and ready to sell on marketplaces around the world, you will need to automate your processes; as well as ensure that your listings are localised and that your customer service team can offer support in the buyer’s local language.

Managing cross-border shipments and returns.

As you will be selling on marketplaces internationally, you will be shipping cross-border. This requires different processes than domestic shipments such as tariffs and documentation. In addition, you will need to manage returns if the buyer is unsatisfied with their purchase.


Managing payments and multiple currencies.

Different countries have different currencies and buyers have varying preferences of how to pay. For example, Chinese customers may prefer to pay in Yuan via WeChat. It’s important to manage all of these and consider the exchange rate implications.

Managing local taxes and other legal compliances.

Each country will have its own tax regulations and legal requirements for selling into the country. It’s important to understand the laws in the countries you wish to sell into as you could find yourself in legal trouble should you misinterpret these guidelines.
