Hurricane Commerce cross-border eCommerce solutions go live on Magento Commerce

Hurricane Commerce’s data enhancement, duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and denied parties screening products are now live on Magento Commerce.

The release of Hurricane’s solutions on Magento Commerce comes at a crucial time for eCommerce traders with Brexit and other changes to laws and regulations, making complete and valid electronic data mandatory.

Without the right data, shipments will be held at customs, causing significant delays, customer dissatisfaction and increased costs.

Magento merchants will be able to access Hurricane’s bespoke AI classification engine Bluestone to ensure their products have the right descriptions and HS6 codes.

Bluestone was built to understand detailed product language and nuances to identify descriptions and match them against the most appropriate customs commodity description and subsequent HS6 code.

Merchants will also be able to integrate Hurricane’s Aura solution, its API that covers duty and tax calculation, prohibited and restricted goods screening and screening of denied parties.

Martyn Noble, CEO of Hurricane Commerce, said: “We are excited that our products are now live on the Magento Marketplace and available to help eCommerce merchants drive greater performance in their cross-border trade.

“Our solutions reduce cart abandonment by enabling merchants to provide real-time calculations of duty and taxes, which gives their customers complete cost transparency.

“We know from our experience with existing customers that reducing cart abandonment can increase revenues by as much as 24%.”

The other major requirement for cross-border eCommerce shops is to ensure they are fully compliant.

Martyn added: “Regulations and laws are getting tougher around the globe.

“Merchants need to have complete and valid data on all shipments as well as ensuring they are not trying to ship goods into countries where they are not allowed. There is also the need to ensure you aren’t sending goods to anyone on a denied parties list.

“Hurricane’s industry-leading solutions are already used by merchants, marketplaces, postal authorities and carriers around the world. “We are delighted that they are available to Magento customers to enable them to accelerate the growth of their businesses and remain compliant.”

The Hurricane extension can be downloaded from the Magento Marketplace. Hurricane is a partner in the Adobe Exchange Partner Program.
