Access the Full Report: Available April 2020

 

In 2018, global eCommerce sales reached nearly $3 trillion, where most consumers made at least one international purchase. As a result, cross-border eCommerce is taking over as the key growth engine to B2C trade, making up 20% of all eCommerce in 2019.

International eCommerce is becoming increasingly competitive. Driven by international sales, new markets are introducing retailers to new complexities within familiar problem areas. Specifically, retailers must prioritize new marketing, logistics, and payment processing methods alongside long-term priorities, such as customer acquisition and loyalty, to mitigate risks in these unfamiliar environments.

These challenges will only grow as retailers branch into additional international markets.
