E-commerce delivery on time, no matter what the region
The internet has made buying and selling products easier than ever, giving commerce companies, large and small, a path for rapid growth in a global marketplace. Yet customs and tax complexity often prevents sellers from entering new markets. This is because cross-border compliance is far more complex than domestic and almost all countries require Harmonized System (HS) codes to calculate customs duty prior to importing goods. For those who are operating cross-border, some of the biggest pain points as an e-commerce seller be it D2C or otherwise, is worrying about getting shipments to a client on time, giving an accurate expected delivery estimate, calculating the right product price point, customs hold ups and import tax headaches.
For online brands and retailers looking for cross-border selling & customs insights, this event provides guidance on the most pressing issues affecting this complex e-commerce market and highlight an array of solutions to succeed.
This dinner is co-organised by FUTR and Avalara.
