Ecommerce Forum partners with Trade Conferences International (TCI) on Cross Border Ecommerce Conference

Cross Border

It gives the Ecommerce Forum of SA great pleasure in partnering with Trade Conferences International (TCI) in supporting this event on cross border ecommerce on 16 & 17 November 2022.

Ecommerce has been used for years to sell quality South African goods abroad. Business to consumer sales to the USA or Europe are a profitable niche market which grew during the COVID lockdown. So did business to business ecommerce. Now the African Free Trade Area is reducing tariffs and encouraging ecommerce merchants to look at new opportunities to trade cross-frontiers. South African ecommerce merchants need to be aware of these new opportunities to sell business to business and business to consumer within the African continent.

There have also been some innovative developments in cross-border payments which will be of great assistance to e-merchants – the TCIB system in the SADC countries created by BankServ, and the Afreximbank’s PAPSS, for example.

In the near future, South African business-to-business and business-to-consumer e-merchants will benefit from economies of scale in the new continental marketplace.

This is the first event specifically designed to assist and encourage e-merchants and ecommerce service providers to look at cross border sales to the traditional markets, and also to the African continent as their next frontier.
