Retail Without Borders... International E-Commerce is Taking Charge

Share Article

Aided by recent developments in online credit card processing technology, a leading online jewelry retailer expands aggressively into international waters.

A leading internet jewelry retailer, http://www.Titanium-Jewelry.com announces a partnership with Paily, the credit card fraud prevention service developed by NPX Technologies. NPX Technologies, headquartered in Tel-Aviv, Israel, has developed proprietary methods to accommodate international identity verification, fraud prevention, and money transfer - complete with 100% charge-back insurance. International orders are now accepted by Titanium-Jewelry.com, and the transactions are verified by Paily. Shoppers all over the world can now easily and safely use their personal credit cards for jewelry purchases. Until recently, due to the high prevalence of credit card fraud involved with international orders and the difficulty in verifying credit card details from non-U.S. banks, many mid-sized e-retailers did not accept orders from outside the U.S. Fortunately, this problem has been overcome...

"We are excited to be able to offer our unique brand of jewelry to customers worldwide. Over the past several years, we have had daily inquiries from nearly every continent regarding the purchasing of jewelry from our website. Because our titanium rings, tungsten rings, and related jewelry items are very unique, international shoppers are generally unable to find similar items in their local jewelry stores. Now we can serve these folks. This is another example of how our economy is becoming part of a global community." - Ron Yates, president and founder of Titanium-Jewelry.com

Where it used to be difficult, international payment processing is now a cinch! Yates explains, "Before, we would have to ask customers to provide documentation, such as a credit card statement, that matched their billing address to the shipping address and a form of I.D. This created privacy concerns, plus extra hurdles for these customers to deal with, not to mention the extra time resources we spent on a single order that were very taxing. We ended up turning down many orders due to these factors."

The recent development of excellent web-based services such as Paily will help e-retailers extend their customer bases, both safely and effectively. Paily has developed a streamlined credit card processing system for international e-retailers. It is now as simple as accepting the credit card that usually pays, for example, in Euros or Pesos. The international customer places the order online, just as a customer from the U.S. would. The credit card companies then convert the cardholder's currency to U.S. dollars at the current exchange rate. This "translates" as no currency exchange hassles for the customer. And because the merchant is now using a third-party verification provider, once Paily approves the transaction (which can be done within a few hours or less), the merchant is covered against fraud charge-backs from the credit card company.

With the new verification system in place, Titanium-Jewelry.com now accepts orders and ships to the following countries: Austria, Australia, Belgium, British Virgin Islands, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, U.S. Virgin Islands, UK.

Because of the value of the contents, packages are shipped fully insured against loss or theft. The two shipping methods for customers to choose from are:

UPS International Express: Canada next day, other countries 2-3 days, most countries $59

USPS Express (U.S. Postal Service): 2-5 days, most countries $29

(The merchant is not responsible for any duties or customs fees that countries may require.)

Attached is a sample from Titanium-Jewelry.com's exclusive men's jewelry collection. The featured ring is made from titanium mokume, a modern version of the ancient metalsmithing art. This mesmerizing metal is composed of natural gray titanium and a patented black titanium alloy dubbed Black Ti. Fused together in folded layers, the resulting "wood-grain metal" is worked into unique and seductive men's wedding bands. These "Timoku" rings, along with many other superb titanium and tungsten wedding bands, are readily available at their website, http://www.Titanium-Jewelry.com.
