“We believe that selling internationally should be as easy as selling domestically, and buying a brand’s products should be as easy on the other side of the planet as it is in a shopper’s home town.”
May 11th, 2015, Joeri Groenewoud, VP of Business Development, was featured in Fashion magazine, talking about international online shopping from the perspective of Italian fashion retailers. You can read the article here, but as it’s in Italian, we’ve included a sample in English below.
What are the potential horizons in international online shopping that Italian fashion companies don't fully exploit for different reasons?
At eShopWorld, our mission is to empower online retailers to succeed globally, by delivering a seamless, localized shopping experience that protects and enhances their brand. We believe that long-term, sustainable growth in global markets will come from brands building outstanding, locally optimized shopping experiences. By “shopping experience,” we mean the complete customer journey, from the first website visit through delivery, including customer service and returns.
Since 2010, our vision has been that online retailers could sell globally with the same ease and efficiency as locally, while their customers enjoy a localized eCommerce experience, regardless of their location or device. With mobile commerce exploding, and consumers increasingly becoming omni-channel shoppers, international shoppers want to browse and buy anytime, anywhere, from any device — smartphones, tablets, and gadgets that haven’t even been invented yet. We want to help brands sell, however the international customer wants to buy.
We believe that selling internationally should be as easy as selling domestically, and buying a brand’s products should be as easy on the other side of the planet as it is in a shopper’s home town. Each day we get a little closer to fulfilling that vision.
