Selling your products online in your local market has never been easier but selling internationally can be difficult. International markets introduce aspects of your business that you need to consider including global taxes and regulations which can be confusing to understand, and time-consuming which can keep merchants from expanding their business into these markets.
But expanding to international markets is the single biggest growth opportunity for your business as more customers are buying online—and from foreign
merchants—than ever before and now Shopify Markets Pro offers a simplified approach to international markets.
The Top Barriers to International Growth
What is keeping merchants from expanding international? The top barriers include international taxes, country specific regulations, duties and import taxes, and shipping and fulfillment strategy.
Shopify has introduced Shopify Markets Pro to handle those aspects and introduce merchants to 150+ markets overnight without the complexity. This will allow customers to browse your store and purchase in their own currency and you will seamlessly receive payment in your own currency with guaranteed exchange rates. It is the simplest way to go global with Shopify.
