Newburyport, Mass. and Amsterdam, The Netherlands (PRWEB) October 16, 2015
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 free report—Key Business Drivers & Opportunities in Cross-Border Ecommerce 2015—incorporates quantitative and qualitative data from nearly 1,200 respondents (about 85 percent more than last year), making it the largest B2B cross-border e-commerce survey in the world.
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. It highlights changing attitudes regarding emerging markets, notably documenting increasing comfort with China as an export destination and the effect mobile is having as a driver of online commerce.
“The ultimate promise of e-commerce is business without borders,” said Steven Casco, CEO of CardNotPresent.com. “In practice, while the opportunity is enormous, cross-border e-commerce can be daunting, but merchants are beginning to look past the difficulties to the opportunity provided by emerging markets. The results of this report show the culture, currency and technology differences that used to cause fear and hesitation are beginning to give way to recognition that merchants can unlock the value of untapped consumer bases.”
