Apparently global sourcing experts can pick inadequacies quickly. So your best option would be to be a gateway to multiple dropshippers with huge inventories, import and export licenses and exposure to international trade.

Either way, you need a sound website either independently built or customizing e-commerce sites available with big-guns like Yahoo and hosting with them which is inexpensive and quick. The biggest issue with e-commerce and import & export sites is configuring shopping-cart and accepting payment.

Regardless of import/export, e-commerce sites need to have payment processing and shopping-cart facilities as you can restrict or extend import and export depending on your interest. An e-commerce system like full-featured osCommerce and X-Cart solutions make setup simple. You will be required to buy their hosting, install the package, and customize to use. Another option is from PayPal and with all these you can receive payments from global sourcing or import/export customers. PayPal let’s you receive payment from the clients’ PayPal account too.

-Tips To Ponder Before Getting On With the E-Commerce Website

Remember, many a times, site design is the decider whether your international trade via e-commerce will make or break. If your ecommerce website caters to global sourcing parties, take extra care to establish credibility using site authentications and SSL certificates. Put-up a privacy policy, helpline and warranty policy pages to drive home the point. Getting an e-commerce website up is not a joke, but is a good energy drainer.

From your point of view, security also means, database security, selection of operating and website maintenance systems etc. No withstanding whether yours is import/export, domestic or even global sourcing, budgeting and monitoring is critical.

Your e-commerce can succeed only if it meets global sourcing standards of import and export necessities. E-commerce on a retail scale can think of dropshipping instead of import/export chores.
