How to Get Paid After Making an International Online Sale


[ Music ]>>So you’ve built your
website and connected with your new online
international customers. Congratulations, but how exactly
are you going to get paid? There are a number of payment
methods to consider as part of your e-commerce export plan. If your company has a website,
you can add a payment gateway that is provided by a third
party and blends seamlessly with the software of your site. The payment gateway provider
accepts credit and debit cards, converts foreign
currencies into U.S. dollars, and sends the payment to you. You pay a fee for
each transaction, so shop around for
the best deal. Another option is an e-wallet,
like PayPal or Alipay, which can also collect, convert,
and deliver payment to you, but they don’t require
buyers to have a credit card. This may be helpful in selling
to many parts of the world where credit cards aren’t as
common or preferred as they are in the U.S. Also, be sure that your pricing
info is comprehensive and easy to understand. You don’t want buyers to
abandon their shopping carts or return goods at your
expense because they’re confused or shocked after the purchase
when asked to pay duties and taxes they didn’t
know they owed. Much more information about online payment
methods is available from the e-commerce experts at
the U.S. Commercial Service. Visit them at the eCommerce
Export Resource Center at export.gov/ecommerce. Brought to you by the

Trade Administration.
