“Consumers around the world who love to explore and shop top brands now have a compelling experience,” says Lila Snyder, Executive Vice President and President, Global Ecommerce at Pitney Bowes. “The new Borderfree.com encourages cross-border shoppers to try new brands and the 2016 Holiday Gift Guide will inspire shoppers to make sure that their special someone – even if it is themselves – receives a unique holiday gift.”

To help cross-border shoppers find that perfect gift, Borderfree.com released the 2016 Holiday Gift Guide that promotes retailers offering a seamless cross-border shopping experience. The guide highlights gift ideas for everyone on a shopper’s list.

Pitney Bowes’ Global Online Shopping Study found that two-thirds of global consumers have shopped cross-border in the last year, and the Borderfree.com site is a resource for the growing population of shoppers looking for items that they cannot find locally. For example, a Canadian shopper can set up a free account at Borderfree.com that stores her address and preferences, and easily shop a variety of retailers from the US, UK and Australia. She then can track her orders all at one site. Over 100,000 shoppers from around the world have already signed up for accounts on the recently launched Borderfree.com site.

Pitney Bowes offers the Borderfree retail experience to consumers as part of its Global Ecommerce business. The Global Ecommerce business includes cross-border ecommerce solutions and shipping management solutions. On its cross-border ecommerce software platforms, more than 250 direct merchants and online marketplaces ship millions of parcels to over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
