Founded in 2007, FedEx Cross Border (formerly Bongo International) started as a package forwarding service for international consumers who wanted to purchase items from U.S.-based websites that did not offer international shipping.
As the company grew, we recognized a need to address the merchant side of the global e-commerce equation, and began developing solutions for online merchants who wanted to expand to international markets. FedEx Cross Border offers safe, end-to-end solutions that allow e-tailers to easily accept orders from consumers outside the U.S. and Canada. Our solutions provide a seamless, localized experience for consumers, automatically displaying the checkout page in their language, accepting their preferred payment methods, and showing prices in their local currency. Additionally, we offer e-tailers the ability to display a total landed cost, which leads to price transparency during checkout. FedEx Cross Border solutions have been pre-integrated within a number of popular shopping cart platforms for quick implementation, giving e-tailers the ease of using their existing systems to access global markets.
