GlobalShopex Launches ARK Therapeutic into the Cross Border E-commerce Market

Share Article

Leading manufacturer of specialty therapy tools begins selling internationally using GlobalShopex’s international shipping solution.

For more than fifteen years, ARK Therapeutic has been a pioneer in the special needs industry, developing niche solutions for speech, feeding, sensory, and oral motor development. By enabling GlobalShopex’s international shipping solution on their BigCommerce e-commerce store, they can now accept international orders and ship to clients in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. GlobalShopex’s iframe solution allows ARK’s international customers to purchase in their local currency, and pre-pay duties and taxes upfront at the time of purchase insuring a seamless global transaction. GlobalShopex manages all aspects of order fulfillment, including fraud screening, payment processing and international shipping, as well as taking on 100% financial responsibility for fraudulent orders and credit card chargebacks.

“Our products have always been used by therapists and parents worldwide” says John Lowsky, Debbie’s husband and the mechanical engineer behind all of ARK’s products. “But, we’ve never had an easy way for them to order. International customers would have to ship to their hotel when traveling in the US, or have friends in the US order for them, and so forth. We’re beyond happy to now offer an easy solution for them through GlobalShopex, and we’ve been particularly impressed with the quick integration, seamless order fulfillment, and the very kind customer support.”

“We are thrilled to help ARK expand their retail footprint to clients outside of the US,” says Raimundo Martinez, CEO of GlobalShopex. “It is great to partner with a company whose mission is to improve the daily lives of individuals with special needs and we are happy to be a part of bringing these products to those in need around the world.”

About ARK Therapeutic:
ARK began in August of 2000. At the time, there were very few tools available specifically for oral motor therapy. So Debbie Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP joined forces with her husband John, a mechanical engineer, to create innovative therapy tools for the special needs community. Fast forward 15 years, and they’ve since invented over 100 products used by speech therapists, occupational therapists, and parents worldwide. Every product they design is also made right here in the USA! To learn more about their products and story, visit:
