Everything You Need to Know from Our wegginar® with Cristina Bandal

wegginar_NOV_2018_website

This past Wednesday, wegg® had the pleasure of hosting the Industry Segment Manager of Retail and Consumer Goods for UPS, Cristina Bandal. Bandal lead one of our free online wegginars®, which provide monthly, accessible education to women entrepreneurs everywhere. Bandal’s talk covered how to overcome the obstacles that people face when trying to sell their products to the global market. She also answered the questions of wegginar® participants. Read their inquiries, and her responses, below:

  1. What’s the single biggest challenge on why people don’t setup an online storefront?  Setting up an international store may sound complicated if you are thinking of creating a country site – but with only a few enhancements, you can make international customers feel at home. 
  2. What are your thoughts on how to factor in taxes, (shipping and duty), to price my products profitably, yet make them affordable to my customers?  With the solution available, your catalogue will provide the information needed to calculate a duty and tax, and offer a landed cost to your customers (and protect you from abandoned goods!)
  3. How does our current trade war with China impact the information presented in this wegginar®?  Whatever tariff regulations are passed are updated to protect the shipments.
  4. Is there a way to target one foreign market when I launch my e-commerce site so that I can test the waters?  YES!!  You can choose what countries to target.
  5. What’s the best way to setup a payment method, in your own currency or the customer’s?  International consumers would like to see their own currency to avoid surprises. By using the UPS i-parcel solution, you are protected by allowing transactions to be processed through UPS, and provide fraud protection.

To read Bandal’s extended answers to these questions, and more, you can view the full presentation (PDF) from the wegginar®, here. wegg® was honored to have Bandal share her experience and knowledge with us.

If you were not able to participate in this month’s wegginar®, we already have registration open for our 12/5 talk with Andrew Molinsky, Ph.D. He will talk about how, “if you are not outside your comfort zone, you won’t learn anything.” Register here.

Be Joyful and Gear Up to Go Global in 2018

As we enter into a new year, WEGG will continue its focus offering top notch education programming via its popular monthly WEGGinars™ and on-the-ground workshops but we will also look into building an online platform that facilitates “access” to key movers and shakers in international trade and encourages more knowledge sharing peer-to-peer.  Watch for more on this development as the year progresses.  And if you are not signed up for our WEGG World Newsletter, here’s a sample of what you missed in our last issue.  By signing up, you can stay in the know on all things related to expanding your business globally.  It’s the eve of a new year:  be joyful and gear up to go global.

Meanwhile, the public-private consultation on the development of ‘Women National Business Agenda’ was organised by the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and USAID Pakistan Regional Economic Integration Activity (PREIA) in collaboration with the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).  The goal of this women-specific agenda is to give women a voice – ‘a first step towards their participation in the economic policy advocacy process’. Here’s one suggestion.

Recommendations to the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) included allocation of 25 per cent budget/quota for women exporters to ensure their participation in TDAP-sponsored trade delegations/exhibitions, establishing of platforms for knowledge sharing, and increasing formal exports by women entrepreneurs in online business.
