Cross-Border Ecommerce Has Evolved with World First’s New World Account

Online sellers can pay suppliers, transfer currency balances, and manage their account on their phone with this new service

The growth of cross-border ecommerce seems unstoppable. It’s predicted that by 2022, cross-border shopping will account for 20 percent of global ecommerce sales.

As sellers have flocked to take advantage of global markets, many have used World First’s receiving accounts to bring funds from international sales back home. These accounts support a wide range of currencies, and offer preferential exchange rates compared to online marketplaces and payment providers.

But online selling has evolved, and sellers need more than just an account to collect their marketplace payments. They need to pay suppliers, transfer between currencies, and manage their accounts on the move. That’s where the World Account comes in. It’s a big leap forward in currency services for online sellers.

If you sell on Amazon, you are probably familiar with messages like this, professing to be from an “Amazon SEO expert” who can bump your product up to the first page of search results.

You are probably just as familiar with moving that email to your trash, and thinking no more about it. Just another phishing scam, right?

That’s what I thought too. But then I heard, from a reliable source, that these services can actually work. I was shocked, and more than a little skeptical, so decided to investigate further. Can these services really deliver on their promises? Or are they just trying to get access to your Amazon account? Will using them get you suspended?

Those are the questions I want to answer in this post.

When Should I Submit Changes to an Amazon Listing?

Does improving Amazon listings help your competitors? And why can a higher-priced seller still win the Buy Box? Matt has the answers.

Have a question for us? Send it to questions@webretailer.com. Readers’ Questions are in partnership with Emanaged and Online Seller Consulting.

Question

I have been selling on Amazon for 3 years, mainly cosmetics. I have a few questions about listings and the Buy Box. Lately some of my listings have been suppressed due to not having a photo, but these were usually existing listings which already had photos attached. Should I add a photo? If I’m not winning the Buy Box, would it just help my competitors?

When adding my offer to an existing listing, how important are my own keywords if the listing is already selling strongly? Is there any way at all to promote my listings other than Sponsored Products ads?

Finally, I created a new listing but another seller is now getting the Buy Box. We both have the same feedback rating, but his price is double mine. Why am I not winning the Buy Box? Apparently price is not the issue!
