International Shipping Simplified for 3DCart Customers with New Bongo Partnership
(PRWEB) October 17, 2011
Ecommerce software provider 3DCart is teaming up with international shipping expert Bongo International to extend its suite of international shipping solutions. Based on Bongo’s current experience, online retail stores using 3DCart can save 60-65 percent on international shipping costs as compared to similar solutions.
Signing up with Bongo is free to 3DCart merchants, who gain the ability to reach customers in 220 countries using a fully branded payment and shipping platform guaranteed against fraud.
“Bongo is a great solution for all retailers using 3DCart,” remarked 3DCart CEO Gonzalo Gil. “If you have a single order that requires products from three separate manufacturers before traveling overseas, for instance, Bongo consolidates the packages to reduce shipment prices, repackage poorly wrapped items and present a unified brand that ships all of its items from a single location. On average, the service reduces billable weight by 32% on every shipment.”
Available for translation in 16 different languages, Bongo takes international customers to a separate checkout page that mirrors the online store’s look and feel and reads the customer’s IP address to choose the default currency. The customer has the option to choose another currency if necessary.
Unlike similar solutions, the tight software integration between Bongo and 3DCart logs international orders in the merchant’s backend order management system as soon as the order is placed. Bongo provides a high-risk verification process that allows merchants to accept international orders where they might have been denied in the past, ensuring 3DCart retailers against fraud.
“3DCart is one of the most comprehensive ecommerce suites on the market, and the launch of 3DCart 4 has helped online retailers take their businesses to the next level,” said Greg Sack, president of sales for Bongo International. “This new partnership will help us offer the benefits of our service to even more online retailers throughout the world.”
As an added value for partnering with Bongo, the company sorts through the merchant’s catalogue, tests each product for compliance and categorizes and assigns each product an HS code, the international standard for classifying trade products.
