Minneapolis-based Target Corporation has launched an international version of its website available to shoppers in more than 200 countries and territories, it said in a press release. The new site, which Target recently began testing, will also allow American customers to ship Target orders to family and friends around the world, just in time for this holiday season.

“We believe international consumers will love shopping the great brands, great prices and exclusive products that are synonymous with Target,” said Jason Goldberger, President of Target.com and Mobile. “Target.com already gets tens of millions of visitors every year from outside the US, and this test will give us even greater insight into how shoppers around the world engage with Target.”

At Intl.Target.com, both international and US guests will be able to shop about half the assortment of Target.com, including apparel, beauty products, home décor, housewares, baby goods and toys. The prices will be the same as those offered in the US on Target.com, and can be shown in nearly 60 different currencies. Countries where shipping from Target is now available include China, India, Canada, Mexico, European Union countries and more.

Target's partner Borderfree, a Pitney Bowes Inc. company, is a market leader in global e-commerce that operates a technology and services platform that some of the world's most iconic brands rely on to expand globally and transact with consumers worldwide.

“We are thrilled to deliver our global e-commerce capabilities to Target,” said Lila Snyder, president, Global Ecommerce for Pitney Bowes. “Our deep experience with cross-border shopping is foundational to our collaboration with Target.”

When international guests visit Target.com, they will be taken to Target's new international website. Guests can then designate the country they would like to ship to and also choose their currency.

Prices will be shown in the local currency, reflecting current conversion rates. The checkout page will be translated into the local language and the all-in price with shipping charges, duties and tariffs will be clearly shown and will be transparent for guests, the release said. (SH)
