Taking your online business to an international level can sound intimidating, isn’t it? But once you understand the twists and turns of the global market, you can tap into your eCommerce business’ fullest potential.

Get yourself familiarized with these tricks of the trade by keeping in mind these pointers:

Know what products tickle your customers’ fancy

One way to reach more international consumers is to know what items are hot and popular in the market. If you’re targeting online buyers in the U.K., selling vinyl and eyelash accessories are a few products to consider due to their increased demand in the country. 

A sports water bottle is another trendy item this 2022. This product makes way for profitability from a large audience due to the versatility and convenience it can offer, whether it's a gym enthusiast or a stay-at-home busy bee.

But first, check the allowed items for import shipping.

Different countries have distinct rules on acceptable goods to be strictly followed. Carriers implement this policy in compliance with the U.S. customs prohibiting FDA-regulated products and to avoid unforeseen damages on the way. Doing otherwise will not only drain your precious time but will also affect your seller performance. 

The solution? Further review the allowable commodities for import. Stallion Express offers global shipping while encouraging our clients to check the permitted goods in the destination country.

Visit APC and PostNL restricted items list for your reference in your next shipping transaction.

Whether big or small, keep the shipments secured for long transit

No one can anticipate the transit hiccups as your package makes its way towards a long journey to your customer. Purchasing shipping coverage, securing items with interior packaging, and tampering a fragile sticker are among the options that can relieve your worries once the shipment is on the road.

Check our available shipping supplies specifically for internal cushioning and outer packing to keep your goods in their tiptop form, just like how you shipped them out with utmost care.

Make it personal!

The days (or mostly weeks!) spent waiting for your international shipments to arrive is serious business.

Make the long arrival worthwhile by sending personalized notes along with your buyer’s purchased items. Giving away freebies as a token of gratitude for trusting your online shop is also a surefire way to increase customer loyalty.

Opt for a shipping carrier that provides an efficient delivery option.

Surprises can’t always be good, especially if it’s the unexpected charges upon receiving your package. Ship internationally without having your customers pay for tax and duties separately with APC Priority Worldwide Tracked (DDP) service! 

Your recipient no longer needs to worry about transparency and cost issues as fees will be credited straight to your Stallion account. We’ve created a price summary for APC Priority for quicker access to your much-needed information.
