Cross-border e-commerce continues to rise in the payments industry – by 2020, more than 900 million people will be international online shoppers.

Without adaptation to this global expansion, which will see the cross-border e-commerce market grow to $1 trillion next year, you risk being left behind.

KeyTrends in The Rise of Cross-Border E-Commerce

It’s important to consider wide-ranging trends when you’re looking to take advantage of the global e-commerce swell.

These include:

  • The Importance of Local Knowledge Continues to Increase:

While payments may be global, having a granular understanding of the places e-commerce is taking place is critical. Entering new markets can be made easier with the help of a payments partner that can combine global scope with this important local knowledge.

  • Global E-commerce is Increasing Exponentially:

We’re not talking a small-scale bump, here – global e-commerce is exploding. It’s time to partner with a payments provider ready to scale up alongside that growth and look ahead, not simply focus on catching up.

  • New Compliance Standards are Being Set:

You’ll need to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), PSD2 and GDPR, but, as open solutions continue to be developed into 2020, it’s likely that even more compliance standards will come down the pipe.

  • External Demand for U.S. Goods:

According to Kount and Internet Retailer, e-commerce is projected to exceed brick-and-mortar sales by 2036 – and that growth is mainly fueled by demand for U.S. goods.
