MINNEAPOLIS — Sept. 19, 2016 — Digital River, Inc., a leading global provider of Commerce-as-a-Service solutions, is partnering with DHL, a world leading international express services provider, to present a free webinar for companies interested in accelerating the growth of their ecommerce businesses across the globe. The educational webinar called, “Ecommerce: Strategies to Expand your International Presence,” is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Ecommerce practitioners and strategists attending the webinar will learn about international ecommerce trends as well as get strategies for building and growing an online business on the global stage. Following a phased “crawl, walk, run” approach for “how to” enter new geographies, Digital River and DHL will focus on five key areas of an online operation, including language, payments, shopper support, fulfillment and the online shopper experience. Attendees also will learn about best practices for navigating complex import and export regulations.

“Global ecommerce is widespread with opportunities. But, it takes a sound strategy, significant investment and a wealth of experience to excel in global markets while safely and legally navigating the nuances of each geography,” said Jason Nyhus, vice president of global marketing and communications at Digital River. “We’ve been helping companies go global — including top tech brands like Adobe, Kaspersky Lab, Lenovo and Microsoft — for over 20 years. The global ecommerce acumen and methodical approach to expansion we’ve developed, supporting online sales across 240 countries and territories worldwide, is unmatched in the ecommerce space.”
