RevCascade_GlobalAccess_logosNEW YORK—Selling products online internationally can present a host of logistical problems, a situation that two third-party providers have pledged to resolve.

RevCascade, a company that offers e-commerce order management platforms, and Global Access, a company that provides cross-border e-commerce technology and shipping solutions, said they are working together to provide seamless cross-border logistics and shipping technology.

“Until now, the complexities and uncertainties inherent in cross-border commerce have limited the ability of retailers and brands to reach their full revenue potential,” said Josh Wexler, CEO of RevCascade. “This powerful partnership will provide retailers, marketplaces and brands control and confidence in offering products to consumers around the world.”

Global Access helps retailers and brands dropship internationally by ensuring the accuracy of duty and tax calculation and speedy customs clearance, while providing consumers and retailers with real-time package tracking through the entire order and delivery processes, the company said. This “significantly improves the brand experience and checkout process which improves conversion rates,” it added.

Brands can offer their customers international checkout capabilities, localization, fraud protection, tax and duty calculations, alternative payment methods and international shipping.

“For brands selling products on marketplaces powered by RevCascade and Global Access, it will now be just as easy to ship products to Moscow as it is to ship them to Maryland,” said Dave Nielsen, CEO of Global Access. “We are changing the way brands sell and consumers shop on e-commerce marketplaces.”

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
