Newburyport, Mass. (PRWEB) October 21, 2014
CardNotPresent.com and Payvision today released the results of a survey exploring cross-border e-commerce along with a report detailing the opportunities for online merchants interested in selling their products around the world. The report—Key Business Drivers & Opportunities in Cross-Border Ecommerce 2014—incorporates quantitative and qualitative data from more than 650 respondents (nearly 50 percent more than last year) spanning all types of e-commerce merchant, as well as participants from merchant service providers, payment providers, acquirers, issuers and card networks.
The report details the current state of cross-border e-commerce both from an importing and exporting perspective for every important region in the world, with analysis and insight into the most important trends in e-commerce.
“The ultimate promise of e-commerce is business without borders,” said Steven Casco, CEO of CardNotPresent.com and the CNP Expo. “In practice, while the opportunity is enormous, cross-border e-commerce can be daunting. Culture, currency and technology cause fear and hesitation when they instead could be leveraged to gain a competitive advantage. Our survey this year looks at the entire landscape and highlights the rise of Asia as a destination for global e-commerce and how mobile has changed the game for merchants looking outside their borders.”
