FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DutyFreeZone.com is not a traditional E-commerce company. It operates an "open marketplace" that connects worldwide buyers with sellers.
It has created an E-Commerce platform to compete against competitors, such as B2B web sites in Asia, which helps businesses of all sizes worldwide reach consumers and importers. It does not sell anything directly and does not own any warehouses.
With DutyFreeZone.com, you can also sell to consumers the same way as its American E-Commerce counterpart; it is a perfect hybrid business model. B2B - B2C
DutyFreeZone.com is also joining the food and luxury businesses with the simultaneous launches of DutyFreeFood.com, an open B2B platform for the food industry and soon PIMM.COM, an open B2B platform for the luxury industry. PIMM stands for" Premier International Merchandise Mart."
DutyFreeZone.com will make sure to block the uploading of any fake merchandise, unlike the Asiatic competitors who do not care about that at all.
Angel David, DutyFreeZone.com's Vice President of Operations, said that the company is all about "Building a business or selling a few products on DutyFreeZone.com's open, worldwide marketplace, listing products in more than 150 categories, and being seen by buyers in 200 countries. With DutyFreeZone.com, you can sell your products to consumers or importers and make money immediately."
Import duties will be calculated automatically and DutyFreeZone.com will encourage its community to do business in countries with free trade agreements in place.
For example, many American companies do not know that they can export directly to Mexico and Canada without paying any import duties, because a free trade agreement stands between those countries.
DutyFreeZone.com will list the countries enjoying free trade agreements to facilitate international trade.
