Your E-Commerce Competitive Advantage

As e-commerce continues to grow astronomically (4 trillion by 2023!), e-commerce platforms need to keep up with competition. One way to maintain a competitive advantage is by saving costs in duties, VAT, and taxes. 

In 2016, the United States raised de minimus from $200 to $800, making it the highest de minimus worldwide. This threshold raise allows direct-to-consumer e-commerce businesses to import shipments into the US up to $800 without passing on the burden of taxes to customers. Using Omni’s global network, your e-commerce supply chain becomes simplified and more cost-effective giving you a competitive advantage over other e-commerce companies. Simplifying your e-commerce Customs compliance is key to keeping your customers happy.
