Accelerate Cross-border E-Commerce
The progress and development of E-Commerce (EC) and smartphones has made it possible for anyone to purchase products anywhere and at any time. As a result, product manufacturers and suppliers now face a variety of novel challenges related to this dynamic EC and digital marketing landscape. What this means is that there is thus a long way to go before flexible borderless commerce can be realized.Today, the concept of “Cross-border E-Commerce” has been popularized, and many manufacturers and suppliers want to expand their business activities to the rest of the world.
