In the bottom-right corner of your browser you should see the Extend launch bar. This international eCommerce launch bar appears for customers located outside the US. It can also be positioned on the bottom left corner of your screen. These placements are crucial, in order to alert customers about your site’s ability to ship internationally.
When clicked, you will see that the Extend international shipping plugin launches as an overlay – but doesn’t re-direct you to another site. This aspect of our Extend international shipping solution is extremely beneficial, as you never lose your international consumer and maintain all analytics.
From here, the customer registers for a Bongo forwarding address and closes the international shipping overlay. Then, the international customer is now back on your website and can enter their newly-obtained address in the “ship-to” area of your checkout.
Through our global eCommerce App Store, you can activate several value-added tools to help your international customer along the way. These tools are available as long as the Extend overlay is open – and remain available after our international shipping solution is closed as well via our website.
