01/07/2015 ChannelAdvisor integrates with Amazon Mexico to help retailers and branded manufacturers expand internationally
Research Triangle Park, NC – July 1, 2015 – ChannelAdvisor Corporation (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced it is helping its customers expand their international reach through its support of Amazon Mexico (Amazon.com.mx), that just launched its physical goods store and marketplace on June 30th. With products in categories such as consumer electronics, home and garden, sports, health and personal care, home improvement and more, Amazon Mexico offers retailers and branded manufacturers a comprehensive site to sell into Mexico.
“The e-commerce market in Mexico grew 32 percent in 2014, and its double-digit growth is expected to continue to a 30 percent increase in 2015,” said Scot Wingo, ChannelAdvisor executive chairman. “Through the development of its fulfillment network, Amazon has simplified the logistics of selling internationally. Amazon’s extensive catalog and expertise in e-commerce will likely resonate well in Mexico, and we see this as a great opportunity for retailers and branded manufacturers to enter this market.”
Retailers can ship Amazon Mexico orders from their own distribution center or use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). Retailers and branded manufacturers using FBA for Amazon Mexico orders are required to import their products to an Amazon Fulfillment Center located in Mexico for storage and local fulfillment. When using FBA, Amazon will provide 24-hour, local language customer support on behalf of the retailer.
In the ChannelAdvisor 2015 Online Retail Survey, U.S. respondents listed Latin America as the second most popular destination for international orders, behind only the U.K. ChannelAdvisor’s Agile Cross-Border Trade framework helps retailers increase product visibility on global marketplaces and other online channels. By selling on marketplaces abroad, retailers can access additional sources of demand and generate new revenue opportunities.
