Many US retailers are hesitant about doing business with overseas customers due to the hassle of completing the customs forms and paying the additional costs associated with the transport of orders across various borders. Not to mention the complicated logistics that goes into overseas shipment. Some orders may change hands up to 6 times before they reach their final destination. The truth is, while every US based company would love the opportunity to reach a larger customer base, most are ill equipped to deal with the complicated international shipping process, which means that they forgo selling to any customer outside of the US borders. This puts both US companies and foreign customers at a distinct disadvantage.
However, there is another way to address this problem.
For US merchants looking to find customers who are interested in shopping From USA, but don’t want to deal with international commerce issues, they can use an import/export company like From US. From US allows overseas customers to make online purchases from retailers based in the US and have them shipped to a US based address which corresponds to a From US owned warehouse. Then, From US handles the logistics of getting the orders to their customers who can be located anywhere in the world. From US is familiar with the processes associated with shipping goods internationally and can provide their services for much less than any US based company and can pass these savings on. US merchants who are looking to access overseas customers can refer them to From US to set up an account which will allow the merchant to avoid costly international shipping while allowing the foreign customers to order whatever they want. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
Signing up is a simple process. Customers simply go to the From US website (www.from-us.com) and register online for an account. They can choose from one of three levels:
*Open: This level is suitable for customers wishing to order occasionally
*Club Premium: This level is suitable for customers wishing to order more regularly and want to enjoy discounted rates
*Premium: This level is suitable for companies looking to import regularly from a supplier in the US and offers all of the services available from From US.
The email confirmation will provide instructions on where to access and how to use your new US based address in order to enable USA online shopping.
Next, the customer will browse from a list of US based retailers on the From US website and choose the site that offers the products he or she is interested in buying. During the shopping process, the customer will be able to access tools that makes comparison shopping, getting coupon discounts and more easy. The customer then completes the transaction and simply sits back and waits for their purchase to arrive. It’s really that simple.
US based merchants are encouraged to stop turning international customers away and encourage them to use From US to buy online from USA. For more information regarding the services offered by From US or how this service can help you boost your sales, please visit www.from-us.com
