When developing an e-commerce website for America, it's necessary to take into account the expectations of American consumers
Online selling isn't a concept that's the same always and everywhere, unchanging over time and insensitive to the country in which it takes place. Online selling actually has its own specificities:
Temporal specificity: what was the norm years ago, isn't today. New technologies and new ways of purchasing have emerged. Just think of the integration between electronic commerce and social media [Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter...], something that up until a few years ago wasn't even on the horizon.
Geographic specificity: every culture has developed its own habits and customs with regard to purchasing processes, which have then also spilled over into the world of online sales. America has not escaped this reality. That's why it makes sense to say that our e-commerce platform is specialized for the United States.
Finding an importer in the US is getting harder. This is because in the years since the financial crisis of 2008, the importer has practically disappeared and been replaced by the distributor. Or, put another way, importers now act like distributors. Still, the need for an importer in the US is a tough-to-kill myth.
