Webinterpret has acquired Borderlinx
WebInterpret has acquired Borderlinx technology to offer what they call the best in class global ecommerce and cross-border logistics solutions for online sellers worldwide.
The Borderlinx solution enables retailers to provide international customers with a seamless shopping experience through guaranteed total landed cost and customs compliance support. This solution prevents delivery delays, and significantly improves customer experience, by displaying customs duty and tax at checkout.
Buyers purchasing from overseas, besides the shipping costs, have to usually shell out taxes or customs duty on the majority of items bought online. The amount due may vary for items ranging from laptops, sports equipment, and computer peripherals. This amount is also often quite difficult to ascertain. Import duties and taxes are one of the prime reasons for delays in delivery. Each year hundreds of thousands of parcels are held by the customs authorities, pending the payment. Borderlinx solves these issues thanks to accurate customs duty and tax calculations, customs documents and shipping labels printing, carrier integration, and much more.
They say that the venture brings the most comprehensive cross-border solution to the market, by combining Webinterpret localization technology powering cross-border programs for ecommerce leaders, such as eBay, PayPal or Amazon with the Borderlinx international shipping solution that in the past has helped the biggest retailers and brands like Kenzo, Loewe, Repetto and Vente Privee to expand internationally.
The technologies combined will deliver a truly wholesome international ecommerce solution, from full online store localization unleashing international marketing, to multi carrier international shipping providing best in class buyer experience. The Borderlinx Europe-wide, strong team of developers, shipping and ecommerce specialists with their invaluable know-how and expertise, will be a great asset to Webinterpret’s global team. We welcome the Borderlinx team onboard and look forward to accelerate our mission to unleash Cross Border Trade.
