Ever found yourself contemplating the global market? Wondering if your products could reach customers beyond borders? You're not alone. Many e-commerce brands miss out on this extra revenue stream and reach a point where they ask: should I take my business international?

The global B2C e-commerce market is estimated to reach 7.9 trillion U.S. dollars by 2030. If you're not expanding your international selling capabilities, you might be missing out on a world of loyal customers.

Now, how do you overcome the many hurdles of global e-commerce, like navigating customs clearance and dealing with foreign currencies, or grappling with shipping costs and handling returns? In this article, we’ll discuss the challenges and benefits of selling online internationally, and we’ll dive into the easiest way to expand across borders using Ryder and Global-e’s integration.

The Benefits and Challenges of Global Fulfillment

Expanding your e-commerce business internationally opens a world of possibilities. Let's talk about the benefits and challenges you might encounter along the way.


Expanded Customer Base: When you venture into international markets, you're tapping into a vast pool of potential customers. By breaking down geographical barriers, you can reach consumers who might otherwise never have bought directly from your brand. This expanded reach can significantly boost your D2C sales and revenue streams.

Competitive Advantage: By offering international shoppers a seamless experience, just like they’re accustomed to when buying from domestic websites, you’re set to win customers beyond borders and cater to their preference to buy directly from the brand. Customers appreciate the convenience of buying from a seller that caters to their location, giving you a competitive edge in the market.


Currency Conversion: Dealing with multiple currencies can be a headache – it adds complexity to your pricing strategy and financial transactions. Fluctuations in exchange rates can impact your profit margins and pricing competitiveness. By implementing robust currency conversion tools and staying updated on exchange rate fluctuations, you can make this challenge completely manageable.

Customs Clearance: Navigating the complexities of customs clearance isn’t easy if you don’t have experience. Each country has its own set of regulations and procedures, and failing to comply with them can result in delays, fines, or even seized shipments. Partnering with a provider with expertise in international logistics, that handles the clearance process for you, will streamline the process and minimize potential disruptions.

Fraud: International transactions are inherently riskier due to the lack of familiarity with foreign markets and customers. As an e-commerce seller, you must be vigilant against fraudulent activities such as payment fraud and identity theft. Implementing robust fraud detection measures and staying informed about common fraud schemes can help you mitigate this risk.

Returns: Dealing with returns is a challenge for any e-commerce business, but it becomes even more complex when shipping internationally. High return shipping costs, longer transit times, and differing return policies across countries can complicate the returns process and impact customer satisfaction. Implementing a streamlined returns policy and offering localized return options can help alleviate these challenges.

To sum up, while international trading offers huge opportunities for e-commerce sellers, it also comes with its fair share of challenges. By understanding and addressing these challenges proactively, you can unlock the full potential of international markets and take your business to new heights.
