VICTORIA, BC, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Just in time for Cyber Monday and
the busy holiday shopping season, Duty-Back www.duty-back.com the online service for cross-border refunds, has launched a customized
platform for business.
"Duty-Back for business helps with customer retention, provides a new
revenue stream for online retailers and delivers fast duty and tax
rebates for international goods returned," said David Gustavson, CEO.
"Businesses can also refer customers to us and receive commissions."
Cyber Monday falls on December 2nd this year and promises to be the busiest shopping day for many
retailers. FedEx estimates it will ship more than 22 million packages
that day as online holiday shopping increases three times faster than
in-store shopping. Canadians are big fans of online deals from US and
international retailers but the majority are losing money every time
they return goods.
"Most businesses can't help their international customers reclaim
millions of dollars in duty and tax paid on goods returned," said
Richard Vining, Duty-Back's Chief Operating Officer. "We provide the
missing link for online retailers, consumer groups, online shopping
communities and mail forwarders."
Duty-Back manages the duty and tax preparation and filing, so customers
can easily claim rebates from a computer or mobile phone anytime,
anywhere. Duty-Back collects information directly from business
partners via a secure API platform. Payments are processed and paid
directly by various methods including e-money transfers.
Duty-Back is currently available to customers who return goods for which
they have paid Canadian duty and sales tax. The company plans to offer
the service to American, Australian and European customers by 2015.
