Hurricane offers a solution to this problem, which can affect businesses of all sizes. Being transparent with customers about the total cost of a purchase will mean they are more confident in the the merchant’s service, and also ensure that the merchant remains compliant in international trade. This added customer confidence can result in up to a 24% increase in revenue.”
