Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. has introduced international shopping online to better serve customers globally, the company announced. Customers outside and inside the U.S. can now browse and buy merchandise from in different currencies and easily ship items to 30 countries.

Customers have the flexibility to ship to a particular country but pay in a separate currency. The new online feature also enables simple, reliable international order fulfillment and shipping. At checkout customers receive an estimated delivery timeframe, global tracking number, a guaranteed exchange rate at purchase and a complete order total including all applicable international duty, tax, and delivery costs.

“We are excited about this opportunity to better serve our customers internationally,” said Jamie Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom Direct. “We've made it a lot easier for our customers abroad to shop from Sending great fashion merchandise from Nordstrom to friends and family overseas is also more convenient than ever for our domestic customers. We will continue looking for ways to improve the shopping experience for customers, no matter where they live.”

Nordstrom has partnered with FiftyOne Global Ecommerce to offer international shopping. FiftyOne ensures a consistent shopping experience for Nordstrom customers by integrating all aspects of the international transaction — global pricing, payment, logistics and delivery — into an automated online order process.
