Considering updating your eCommerce knowledge?  The ITA is offering a webinar series this week.

One of the main eCommerce issues companies face, time and time again when handling cross-border eCommerce transactions is the payment process. With credit cards being the most common form of payment associated with these transactions, there are number of factors that can go into ensuring the process is as smooth as possible.

It’s important for businesses to:

  • Develop an understanding of rates and fees associated with card-based transactions;
  • Mitigate fraud risk through use of advanced security tools;
  • Employ a streamlined workflow for handling and fighting chargebacks; and,
  • Select the best payment gateway to ensure compliance and maximize ROI for their industry

To help you and other U.S. exporters to better understand the “what” and “why” of eCommerce payments, the U.S. Commercial Service will host a two-part webinar series titled “Cross Border eCommerce Payment System Strategies” on Tuesday, April 18, and Thursday, April 20, both at 1pm EST.
