eCommerce Companies - Currency Hedger

FX management for ecommerce companies


From sport, fashion and beauty, to gaming, marketing, and publishing, most retailers sell their products or services through different ecommerce channels, including their own websites, apps or via third-party online marketplaces.  

Ecommerce businesses have exploded in recent years, with global retail ecommerce sales expected to reach $4.9 trillion by 2021. Despite its success, we still encounter many merchants that are not leveraging currencies to their full competitive advantage. We often see:

  • Merchants that are not selling in foreign currencies, leading to higher customer friction, shopping cart abandonment and fewer repeat purchases
  • Ecommerce companies that are not using currency accounts to collect funds in local currencies, leading to higher PSP conversion fees and unfavourable FX rates
  • Those that are selling and collecting in different currencies but that are not hedging their FX risk properly.

eCommerce companies and merchants are already using Currency Hedger solutions to unlock new customer segments while protecting their margins
