INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PLUGIN: THE PROCESS
When this gray bar is clicked, a small overlay launches the international shipping solution, which enables customers outside the US to acquire a forwarding address from Bongo. The Extend international eCommerce overlay hovers over your website, so shoppers never leave and you maintain consistent analytics for all your customers. Additionally, customers using Extend have immediate access to our international shipping rates, transit times, and other useful information.
Once the international customer has obtained an address, they close the overlay and gain access to all the useful tools our international shipping solution has to offer. Merchants can activate different apps through our Extend App Store. Extend Apps can turn your website from a domestic shopping site to an international eCommerce site in minutes, with value-added tools such as a Landed Cost Calculator and Website Translation.
From the international shipping plugin, customer continues to checkout just like a domestic one would, entering their newly-acquired forwarding address in the “ship-to” area.
After the international eCommerce transaction is complete, you simply send the customer’s package to their forwarding address domestically and Bongo will handle the remaining steps for exportation to their country. We handle all customs, paperwork, customer service. In short, what we offer is a complete international shipping solution.
The functionality of the international eCommerce plugin Extend is powered by a customizable script, which is simply copied and pasted to your site. If you aren’t experienced or comfortable with editing HTML pages, Bongo representatives will happily help walk you through the setup.
