Consumers from over 200 different countries, from France to Belarus to Tahiti will be able to purchase K’NEX manufactured building sets by going to knex.com and selecting their country from a list. They will then be able to view the building sets that are available to them: because of licensing and distribution agreements, not all sets are available in all countries. Export compliance is one part of the service being provided through Bongo. Consumers simply place their orders as they would on any local website. They receive their purchases in 3-5 days.
At the most basic level, selling internationally involves offering international shipping and accepting various methods of payment. Bongo enables this and much more.

The process includes everything from HS classification for accurate duty & tax calculation to complete fraud protection. This allows K’NEX to focus on maintaining their products’ high quality and continued success- wherever they go.
