The pitfalls of international eCommerce and how to circumvent them

International expansion also means far-reaching implications for companies that have already developed an Online channel such as a SaaS Product or an e-commerce Channel. Challenges include the diverse purchase behaviour, competitive landscape, billing or payment and webshop localization, which entails more than just translating content into another language. Another key success factor is reaching your target group in the respective markets.

How to tackle these tasks? What do you need to know and how do you succeed in international digital sales and commerce in spite of it all. One of the challenges of e-commerce is international expansion, and how exactly one goes about it. There are complications around language, payment, billing, fulfillment, tax and how to integrate with back end systems. Topics like GDPR or further VAT regulations do not help to reduce complexity. How do you get the most out of your online sales channel in the diverse markets around the Globe?
