With ComGateway, merchants never have to worry about fraud or chargeback, nor will they need to charge a premium for shipping
Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 8, 2009
Comgateway, an eCommerce leader in facilitating international sales for US-based eCommerce Merchants, will work with EgyptianMagic.com to expand sales to online shoppers in Asia.
"We are delighted to be able to partner with ComGateway to provide our Asia Pacific customers with access to Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream at a reasonable cost," said Stuart Henigson, marketing manager for Egyptian Magic. "Egyptian Magic is already one of the best-selling imported skin creams in Japan, and we feel that an all-natural product like this has enormous potential throughout the rest of Asia Pacific, where consumers place so much value on pure, all-natural products.
"Through this relationship we can now lower the expense of freight to serve our existing markets in the region, including Taiwan and Hong Kong. At the same time we can safely expand into several new markets with ComGateway's 'Pay For Me' service," Henigson added.
"In 2008, Asian Pacific consumers purchased over $5 billion worth of products and services from US based eMerchants and yet fewer than 15 percent of U.S.-based merchants actively sell internationally," said Paul Schmudde, President of Gateway Express, ComGateway's logistics facility in Portland, Oregon. Due to the absence of the credit card industry's Address Verification System or AVS outside North America, merchants are taking a risk whenever they accept payment other than cash or bank wire transfer which is immune to chargeback and fraud.
"With ComGateway, merchants never have to worry about fraud or chargeback, nor will they need to charge a premium for shipping," adds Mr Schmudde. "It's a whole new ball game when it comes to shipping to and accepting payments from international buyers. comGateway combines marketing programs with fraud protection and logistics solutions to provide a turnkey solution to US merchants who wish to sell safely to international shoppers."
