4 Cross-Border Mistakes You Might Be Making
March 15, 2016
Sending parcels cross-border can be a great advantage for your eCommerce business. However, it can also be costly if you aren’t doing it the right way.
Here are 4 mistakes you might be making:
- Incorrect customs forms and requirements. Every country is different and not having the correct forms could send your packages right back to you, or worse, stuck in customs for a long time.
- Incorrect addresses. Verify the addresses you have before sending anything. You don’t want to get stuck paying more, just because you have to ship a second time with the correct address.
- Parcels aren’t packaged correctly. Incorrect packaging could cause items to be damaged. Make sure you know the mode of transportation your packages have to take and plan ahead.
- You’re using the wrong shipping company. Know who is handling your packages and make sure you’re saving the most money. They should be able to help you avoid the mistakes above and get your packages cross-border quickly, but effectively.
Shipping cross-border can sometimes be a complicated process. The best way to ensure you’re making the most out of your cross-border shipping is to work with a company that is an expert in this area. Your customer’s satisfaction is reliant on that.
