"Retailers popular with the company's international consumers include Amazon, Gap, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bluefly, Spiegel, and eBay sellers. International shoppers love the selection of goods from U.S. retailers. They're thrilled that it can be so easy to buy. Businesses use the fast and cost-effective service to get wholesale items from U.S. suppliers to their location," said founder and CEO Eric Baird.
International shipping presents several unique challenges to U.S. retailers: fraud prevention; customer service issues based on time zone differences and language barriers; the difficulty of using domestic distribution centers to facilitate cost-efficient international shipments; and regulatory compliance with no less than five federal agencies. MyUS.com services overcome these challenges by providing thorough fraud screening, compliance and shipping consolidation services, as well as giving control to the consumer.
"Putting the consumer in the driver's seat allows them to choose which merchandise they like, rather than requiring a retailer to undergo the expense of creating a merchandise line specific to each market and each country," said Teresa Foreman, VP of Marketing and Business Development.
MyUS.com provides international package forwarding services to consumers worldwide. Secure and efficient web-based technology operates company systems as well as providing the consumer or business owner 24/7 online access to all aspects of their account. For those making several purchases, package storage and consolidation services provide real savings on international shipping. International customers who do not have credit cards acceptable to U.S. merchants make purchases through a personal shopper service.
MyUS.com, d.b.a. of Access USA Shipping, Inc., is the market leader in international package forwarding. Empowering consumers worldwide and solving merchants' global logistics challenges for more than a decade, MyUS.com moves approximately 50,000 boxes each month through its facilities in Bradenton, Florida destined for any of more than 225 countries.
