US retailer expands internationally without dealing with fraud or changes to their operation.

BongoUS has definitely helped our business grow!

In a maneuver to try and help expand its business, EILATAN, a hip and trendy shoe store in the heart of Los Angeles, CA, recently decided to open up their virtual doors to international customers. EILATAN implemented a new process by Bongo International, or - allows millions of potential customers to shop on the EILATAN website by simply clicking on an International Shipping button in their shopping cart.

Now EILATAN sells their unique product line worldwide. They carry a shoe assortment based on "special resources and designers" usually only found in boutique stores, and normally sought after by customers with an exceptional sense of style.

"BongoUS has definitely helped our business grow!" says Ron Khy of EILATAN. "The international sales we ship to BongoUS add up for us because for one- we don't have to cover the freight. Before BongoUS we would have to manually take items to the postal service, stand in line and ship our products, which was very time-consuming. By shipping directly to BongoUS, we have been able to add on thousands in extra revenue we generally would not get. Before we started shipping with BongoUS, we only had 1-3 international sales a month on our website. Now we get upwards of 10-15 international orders a month, which is a great improvement."

According to Ron, "Retailers who are apprehensive about incorporating international shipping are losing out on a lot of potential sales. There are a ton of international customers looking to purchase from the US because products are cheaper or they can't get those items. The worst thing you can do is not try. Also, we never worry about fraud or international charge backs with anything we ship to BongoUS because we know if they are a BongoUS customer, they are a verified customer who won't try to rip us off."

Many types of companies large and small are desperately searching for ways to increase revenue for 2009. Business owners want to expand but can't afford any added expenses to their overhead. Justifiably, retailers worry about things such as customs compliance as well as credit card fraud. A free service to US retailers, BongoUS handles all customs requirements and customer service, as well as thoroughly fraud screening their applicants before activating their account.

"Our processes are extremely easy to implement. If you can put a hyperlink in your shopping cart, then you can sell to international customers in over 220 countries using BongoUS's service", says Craig Turnbull, President and CEO, of Bongo International.

Bongo International allows companies to delve into international e-commerce without the headaches involved.
By providing a US Address, a retailer only has to ship their product domestically to BongoUS's warehouse in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
