BlueSnap Partners with iGlobal for Cross-Border Logistical Automation
Aug. 4, 2014
Waltham, Mass.-based online gateway provider BlueSnap today announced a partnership it said will enable merchants to more easily navigate the challenges inherent in selling online in different countries. For merchants using BlueSnap’s gateway, the company said its integration with iGlobal Stores will let them automate international tax and shipping calculations while enjoying the localized checkout experience they have come to expect from BlueSnap. At checkout, iGlobal’s software can automate calculations of duties, taxes, clearance fees and shipping costs while mitigating legal and compliance problems by recognizing restricted items or brand relationship violations.
“Merchants don’t realize how complex payments and logistics can become when they move into the international arena,” said Clint Reid, president of iGlobal. “Our partnership with BlueSnap allows us to better minimize the difficulties surrounding global e-commerce and ultimately help merchants turn more shoppers into buyers. This is a simple integration that can eliminate an enormous number of roadblocks for online sellers.”
