Logistics and Shipping

The US holds a well-developed logistics market and has a vast range of strategic warehousing centers and locations. With these fulfillment centers often come preferred shipping options such as UPS and FedEx, though small businesses could also use the government-run postal system; the U.S. Postal Service for quick local delivery.

When you outsource your operations to a third-party logistics company such as Simple Global, you’ll be able to reach US customers quickly and efficiently while providing them with a much more satisfying customer experience. This comes with rate savings for competitive shipping prices, faster delivery, and hassle-free returns. We’ll also handle the tedious customs work so that you can focus on the front end of marketing your business in the USA.

Simple Global covers all fulfillment aspects of your business, so you can sit back and relax while your products reach customers around the US. Not only this but Simple Global ships worldwide – enabling your brand to expand and scale globally.

Accepted Payments in the USA

According to a survey by American Express, the most popular payment method among US online buyers is credit cards. They are used for purchases for 73% of US adult digital buyers, versus debit cards at 62%. Some companies even adopt a ‘buy now, pay later’ method, though it’s more popular in Europe than North America.

Other examples of accepted payments include PayPal, Mastercard, American Express, Visa, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
