Canadian Online Business Has Never Been Better

How Can You Capitalize on the Great White North?
  • Canadian shoppers are a patriotic bunch.  
    They actively look for Canadian merchants first when shopping Online.  There are a number of reasons, but the biggest reason is the devalued Canadian dollar.  The US dollars costs almost $1.50 Canadian. ( That's 50% more ) This is enough reason alone for Canadians to try and purchase in Canadian currency.  

    Tip #1   Canadians Actively Look For Canadian Merchants First.  
    If you are based outside of Canada, you may wish to set up shop in Canada.  Or, form a strategic alliance with a Canadian based Online merchant.  Remember, shopping in US currency is approximately fifty percent more.  We would suggest this is a major sting to the Canadian pocket book and good reason why they will try to avoid US currency whenever possible.

  • So how do you attract the Canuck Bucks?  
    Innovative and creative discounts and special offers will go a long way.  You could consider free shipping or special Canadian discounts.  Offering prices in both Canadian and American dollars is another option ( Don't forget Canadians also pay a premium exchange fee from their Canadian credit card company... a double whammy!).  

    Tip #2   Offer Innovative and Creative Discounts to Canadian Shoppers.  Offer prices in both Canadian and US currency.

  • If you do ship to Canada, check out the Brokerage Fees that your Canadian customer may have to pay.  Depending on the method of delivery, your customer may get hammered even harder for border processing fees.  As an additional service, you could pre-determine if your Canadian customers were subject to any Canadian Duty charges also.

    Tip #3   Check Out Brokerage Fees Within Canadian Borders.  Consider pre-determining Duty costs.

  • Pay attention to Canadian trend setting E-commerce Web sites.  Canadians are a pretty competitive bunch.  Shadowed by their giant neighbor to the south, Canadian sites are working harder for that e-dollar.  As a result, they are blazing the trail across the Web.

    Tip #4    Check Out Canada Shopping for trend setting Web Sites.
