The core of all conversion services.
As you may know, price localization is a key factor in global e-commerce. It’s been proven in many studies that people tend to feel more comfortable making a purchase in a familiar local currency. When products are priced in a foreign currency, the rate of shoppers abandoning the cart increases and cuts into sales for the business.
A study done by Profitwell over 50 SaaS companies, found that those who localized prices experienced up to 30% more growth.
Of course, localization is more than setting a price in a local currency, but if you are planning to start, or even maintain, a global e-commerce, you will need to overcome this problem.
But the main reason to update your e-commerce or business system exchange rates is to keep your prices safe, and prevent:
In recent years, volatility across foreign exchange markets has become the new norm. Macroeconomic, geopolitical and also health events like the Coronavirus pandemic, Brexit, the trade war between China and the US, and other countries’ perpetual instability, all result in increased volatility and currency rate fluctuations.
Global businesses and professionals who rely on these ever-fluctuating exchange rates are exposed to multiple accounting errors, financial inaccuracy and losses if they don’t protect themselves against currency differentials between what they accounted for and what they really paid or earned.
