Global eCommerce: The World Behind the Buy Button
Global e-commerce has come a long way in a short time thanks to technology and services that enable small local organizations to work with large global organizations at various levels of the e-commerce ecosystem.
We outlined a panel of experts who shared with us valuable information for navigating the complexities of global e-commerce and reveal some of the details behind the “buy” button! From learning how they sell their products online, to providing products for others to sell online, and learning about back-end solutions that enable participants in the global e-commerce network to optimize productivity.
On Wednesday, June 20 we were accompanied by ecommerce experts from PayPal, describing trends in global purchasing and payments; TrackR, leveraging ecommerce to keep track of things around the world; MineMine Kids, retailing unique clothing for children worldwide; FastSpring, helping businesses around the globe grow through their cloud-based e-commerce platform; and TrackStreet, providing online brand protection and market analysis.
