Quidsi, an Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) company, announced it would offer international shipping on nine of its e-commerce sites, including Diapers.com, Casa.com and BeautyBar.com. Now customers in 67 countries throughout Australia, Asia, Europe and South America will have access to products on the e-commerce sites, with competitive shipping options such as one- to three-day service in select destinations.
"With this launch, we reinforce our dedication to making busy parents' lives easier via best-in-class product selection for the whole family, fast shipping and 24/7 customer service—not just in the U.S., but now across the globe," said Robyn Brown, international expansion leader at Quidsi. "We are thrilled to offer U.S. residents the ability to send gifts to loved ones overseas or easily ship products to their destination in advance of international travel, as well as make it simple for residents around the world to order from our sites directly to their homes."
Diapers.com and the other e-commerce sites offer more than 65,000 products for international shipping. In addition to competitive shipping rates, Diapers.com has partnered with international shippers to manage the customs clearance process, including the payment of any import fees on behalf of the shopper.
Quidsi was sold to Amazon three years ago whent Diapers.com was no longer able to compete with Amazon's Prime shipping. Since the sale, the brand has undergone several changes, including a relaunch of Vine.com to cater to customers with dietary restrictions.
Quidsi's former owner, Marc Lore, recently raised $55 million to start a new e-commerce site.
