Small Business Saturday is celebrated the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year in the US as a way to highlight local retailers over the mass retailers and e-tailers that dominate holiday shopping each year. WorldFirst wants to celebrate small businesses every day of the year, and while many small businesses across the US are focused on local sales, it doesn’t have to be this way. Cross-border ecommerce presents the perfect opportunity for small businesses to think BIG, like $424 billion big, which is the projected total value of worldwide B2C cross-border ecommerce by 2021.
To help small businesses better understand the global opportunities out there, WorldFirst put together the following infographic. When small business owners decide to shift their business plan to include cross-border ecommerce, they’ll find a wealth of assistance at SBA.gov – and of course, WorldFirst will be there to help with their currency transfer needs.
