Can your E-Store Sell Products Internationally and Quote DDP (Door to Door) Pricing

At Klatu, We Focus on Delivering International E-commerce Solutions. International customers demand security, a technically reliable web site with up-to-date real-time product information and assured quick deliveries.

(PRWEB) May 22, 2005 -- U.S. online companies generally are unable to accurately calculate the costs of international transactions. Many avoid international sales because customs and tax issues prove confusing, they do not understand U.S. Export laws or another country's import laws, and consider international sales risky. Many sell on e-commerce platforms designed for domestic sales and unable to manage international information, export documentation, or accurately estimate total delivery costs.

International customers require privacy and security, a technically reliable web site with up-to-date real-time product information and assured quick deliveries. Uniquely international issues include different languages and other currencies.

At Klatu, we focus on delivering internet solutions addressing international needs.

This marketplace represents nearly 550 million people and nearly 50 countries .

We designed our e-commerce solutions to allow U.S. companies to sell internationally and for Latin American resellers to sell online to their country and elsewhere throughout the region, sourcing from U.S. and regional IT suppliers. Our e-commerce solutions allow international freight calculations, multiple IncoTerms sales, transactions in multiple languages and currencies. International customers go online, receive accurate DDP pricing with delivery to their doors. We also designed the engine to calculate transportation and landed costs such as duties, taxes, clearance charges and VAT separately from the sale's profit margin,
