Partnering with Bongo to handle the international shipping leaves us to do what we do best; develop and deliver quality, unique products for residential and commercial environments
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
The US market has been a successful one for Destination Lighting. The decision to expand the online business came after receiving a constant flow of international inquiries. The company decided to partner with Bongo International in order to offer their products to consumers in over 220 countries.
“Partnering with Bongo to handle the international shipping leaves us to do what we do best; develop and deliver quality, unique products for residential and commercial environments,” writes Dave Mckee, Chief Operating Officer of Destination Lighting. Since opening its digital doors in 2006, Destination Lighting has grown rapidly and is known as a great resource for lighting and home accessories of all styles. They have a full 95 years of lighting experience to draw from. As a result of their expertise, they have become the well- known source they are today, and have developed their own successful brands known as Design Classics and Dolan Designs.
Currently, 7.5% of Destination Lighting’s website traffic is international, coming largely from Canada, the UK, and Australia. This is an analytics metric that all US retailers should be reviewing to ascertain where any latent markets might be waiting. If international consumers are visiting your US website presently, it’s very likely that expanding globally is overdue.
The unprecedented growth of international e-commerce, even in tough economic times, has initiated the interest of many US based merchants into expanding overseas. The numbers have been too consistent to ignore despite the complications that international expansion invites. This is one of the major benefits of Bongo’s Checkout solution. Bongo handles international credit card transactions, fraud protection, landed cost calculation, logistics, and more. Achieved through your existing e-commerce infrastructure, there are no disruptions to your domestic operation. Additionally, the solution is easily integrated.
Bongo allows retailers to do as Dave Mckee stated, stay focused on product quality and maintaining service levels, while Bongo manages the international details.
