NEW YORK, May 31, 2011 /CNW/ -- Barneys New York, the luxury specialty retailer, announced today that its e-commerce website, Barneys.com (www.Barneys.com), has introduced international shipping to 90 countries including Canada, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Australia, and China.
International customers of Barneys will enjoy the same full-service online shopping experience currently available to domestic customers, but will be able to make payments in their preferred currency with cost-effective international shipping and handling services. By going global, Barneys is able to offer its carefully edited assortment of products to those outside of the existing US e-commerce market.
"Barneys has always been a destination for International tourists and it is a natural step to offer our web services to the rest of the world. Barneys has incredible global brand recognition, but we could only service here in the US. International shipping has fundamentally changed that reach," says Daniella Vitale, Chief Merchant and Executive Vice-President of Barneys New York.
Barneys has partnered with FiftyOne Global Ecommerce, the recognized market leader in international e-commerce, to provide exceptional service and convenience for its customers around the world. FiftyOne allows US retailers to transact with customers in over 90 countries worldwide, making it the most comprehensive global e-commerce offering available in the marketplace today.
