Cosabella is a global, luxury lingerie company that has brought color and innovation to their industry for over 30 years. From bodysuits in the mid-eighties bringing innerwear out, to ultra-stretch lace bras far too beautiful to be hidden beneath clothing, Cosabella has always been on the forefront of new trends. They believe lingerie should reflect mood and each season bring vibrant, cutting-edge colors into their apparel, reflecting the high-energy, eclectic world. Moving forward with a solid digital platform, they look forward to continuing their story of excellence, ethics and quality.
Cosabella needed a platform that could support international storefronts, offer local currency conversions and multiple languages. Moreover, they needed easy-to-use inventory control tools, integration with multiple ERP systems, and dynamic merchandising tools to their vibrant and diverse collections.
As Courtney Connell, E-commerce Manager for Cosabella explains, they were looking for a solution that had the “scalability of Magento but that didn’t require all of the extensions that Magento would need to service our i... Read more

You’ve determined that the time is right to expand your ecommerce company internationally. You’ve identified an ecommerce platform that offers multi-language solutions, offers an integrated backend toolkit to make managing your storefronts easy, and is versed in the SEO best-practices to ensure your translated, localized site will show up when customers search for the products you sell. Three important considerations remain before taking the global leap – currency conversion, shipping, and landed costs – to ensure customers complete purchases once they’ve found your global-friendly site.
Offer Currency Conversions in Real-Time
In addition to a marked preference for shopping in their native language, international customers appreciate having prices displayed in their local currency. Having a platform that can do instant conversions and present customers with accurate, current pricing in their preferred currency takes unwanted uncertainty out of the transaction and fosters greater confidence in your company with your customers.
While third party vendors, like Borderfree, offer conversion software, the cost of utilizing their tools can often be prohib... Read more

Online shopping has gone global; having a solid plan to take your ecommerce company international can prove fruitful. Offering a more familiar, welcoming experience to international customers is key to an effective international strategy. In other words: localization – through native-language pages and SEO optimization.
Research indicates that customers are more likely to purchase from companies they feel comfortable with and for international ecommerce – this means sites that offer native-language content. Making the effort to convertat least some of your site content for international customers can translate into a significant competitive advantage. A survey conducted by Common Sense Advisory in 2014 of consumers in 10 non-anglophone countries found:
- 75% of respondents preferred to shop in their native language
- 60% rarely or never bought from English-only sites
- 50% prefer to have at least some elements of a site in their native language
Making a great first impression, with targeted native-language content, may not be as challenging as you think. While it may seem necessary to translate all ... Read more

While it’s easy to see the benefits of an optimized and integrated ecommerce system for customer management, it’s equally – if less obviously – important to have that system integrate with the one managing your inventory and shipping operations. The best ecommerce systems allow you to track customer and merchandise information with one interface; integrate with supply chain and finance systems; quickly and consistently update product data for multiple channels or storefronts. Having an inventory system that syncs with all of these other mission-critical systems further optimizes your ecommerce system and makes your ecommerce company even more competitive.
Optimize Service Delivery
Customers have found your site, been impressed by what youoffer, and made their purchase. Delivering exceptional service does not end with that transaction. With major brands offering ever-quicker delivery options, having an integrated inventory and warehouse system that continues to provide a superb and streamlined customer experience is essential. For some vendors, taking advantage of drop shipping may be the answer; for others, it may involve warehouse space in multiple locations. Whatever the solution, a system that integrates all your tools will make your company the mos... Read more
