Target Corp, one of the largest discount retailers in the US, today announces it has launched an international version of its website, making Target products available to UK shoppers for the very first time – as well as over 200 other countries and territories

“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 U.S. 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. (PBI) 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 e-commerce for Pitney Bowes. “Our deep experience with cross-border shopping is foundational to our collaboration with Target.”

International consumers will now get to experience why Americans for decades have counted on Target for high-quality, on-trend merchandise at low prices. 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 sitewide 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 transparent for guests.

“International shipping marks another step toward Target being able to truly deliver for guests anytime, anywhere,” said Target’s Goldberger. “We look forward to getting feedback from our international guests so we can continue to test, learn and iterate to help ensure we provide a great value to our new international guests.”
