Webinterpret and PayPal launch newest cross-border solution
It’s official! In partnership with PayPal we have now launched PayPal Global Sellers program, a unique solution that enables merchants to rapidly expand their online business internationally.
‘Traditionally online merchants required huge resource and manpower to localize their product catalogs, provide localized payment and affordable international shipping,’ says Patrick Smarzynski, CEO at Webinterpret. He adds …
This program removes all those biggest barriers, increasing online sellers’ international presence and sales.
The Webintepret’s Plug&Play platform includes online stores translation and localization in 60 countries, taxes/duties presentment, international shipping, as well as PayPal free returns, localized payments and much more. As part of the PayPal’s Global Sellers program, this end to end solution is offered at no extra cost to the merchants or to the buyers.
Merchants convert overseas window shoppers into buyers more easily, thanks to a set of features specifically designed for global trade:
- Translation & Pricing Conversion – their product titles and attributes are translated with a specific ecommerce translation engine, and the prices are converted based on current exchange rates. Providing the most comprehensive end-to-end localized shopping experience. The translation engine provided by Webinterpret, already powers other international cross-border programs, such as the eBay and the Amazon marketplaces, and is now available to any online store.
- PayPal Checkout – a fully localized, secure and hosted international checkout process that allows to accept payment in 25 currencies with industry-lead encryption and fraud prevention tools;
- International Shipping – low cost, hassle-free and reliable. Merchants simply send their packages to a domestic shipping hub and the program handles international logistics and delivery for them.
All this is underpinned by a state-of-the art technology and a specialized support from an account manager.
‘As the ecommerce sellers are really beginning to recognize the significance of cross-border trade, Webinterpret ensures their needs are now being adequately addressed with a solution that’s straightforward to set up and operate… and most of all at no extra cost’, Patrick continues.
