RegisterIf you thought Brexit was bad, retailers and marketplaces are bracing themselves for further upheaval over the coming weeks. With the US STOP Act, EU VAT, ICS2, on top of changes in shipping to Northern Ireland due to Brexit, this webinar will show why complete and valid data is vital for cross-border ecommerce success.

  • The 15th March sees the enforcement of the US STOP Act requiring complete and valid data on mail parcels.
  • The 15th March also sees the roll-out of ICS2 requiring postal operators to provide entry summary declarations on all parcels.
  • From the 1st July, the EU is implementing major changes regarding VAT including the ending of the low value threshold on eCommerce goods.

This webinar will show merchants, marketplaces and anyone else involved in the cross-border supply chain how they can reap the rewards of this swathe of regulatory change.

You will hear about each of the changes and how they affect the way you do business and the relationship with your customers.

But, more importantly, we will explain the crucial importance of having complete and valid data (including HS6 codes, product descriptions, country of origin etc.) and also ensuring you are screening effectively for prohibited and restricted goods and so called denied parties.

Cross-border ecommerce is growing exponentially year-on-year, as are the challenges facing retailers looking to grow their revenues internationally.

This webinar with Hurricane Commerce is essential for anyone involved in the complex world of cross-border ecommerce. The webinar takes place on Monday the 15th of March at 11am, sign up today to reserve your place or receive a replay if you can’t attend in person.
