BeCommerce Cross-Border Summit 6th Edition
In a small market such as Belgium, the key to e-commerce growth is crossing borders and selling abroad. We hear many worldwide and European facts and figures. In 2018, 36% of the European online shoppers did their purchases cross-border. What does our cross-border spending really look like? What is happening on the Belgian market? The International Post Corporation will open the summit and share the key results of their in-depth market research with us by presenting facts and figures about the Belgian cross-border e-commerce market.
Knowing this is one thing, taking action is another.
Which market do you have to choose?
How can you expand your business? Directly through your own webshop? Or are online marketplaces the solution?
How can you understand what customers in that market want? You have to be able to communicate in the dominant language your customers read.
You have to acquaint yourself with payment practices across different markets.
How will you be clearing customs?
How will you be dealing with e-commerce returns?
How do you optimize your performance marketing abroad? How do you manage all this market data?
How do you deal with the complexity?
