From the need arising from social distancing and the increase in the purchase of items from a computer; A great opportunity was created for companies to adapt to this new consumer behavior, which is definitely here to stay.

This need created the strategic alliance of international companies such as BigCommerce, Mercado Libre, CedCommerce, Payoneer, DICEX and Solucionet who, from their field of experience and services, contribute important changes for the creation of the environment that is needed for the development of eCommerce.

These changes were transmitted through the event organized by the Grow Big initiative in which the US Commerce and Big Commerce departments participated to promote exports to Latin America.

According to their experience, each of the companies involved shared their experience in:

  • Mercado Libre with the Marketplace.
  • CedCommerce with services to sell in various distribution channels.
  • Payoneer as a worldwide payment method.
  • Big Commerce as a consultant to contact brands with suppliers.
  • Solution for digital marketing services.
  • DICEX for regulatory consulting for customs clearance of products.


The event was attended by the valuable participation of Master Carlos Arévalo, who is part of the specialists in foreign trade consulting at DICEX Consultores. Specifically, the teacher Carlos Arévalo, explained the 6 most important points to facilitate and make the most of eCommerce:

  1. Understand the two models of CBT in Mexico (Cross border trade): Know the conditions to be able to use them, such as the maximum value allowed 1000 USD per package, understand that the purpose of the import is not resale products, and other important aspects.
  2. The preliminary evaluation of the product: Understanding what applies to your product that you will import, knowing and knowing your product in terms of tariff fraction will allow you to know the requirements that you need to meet.
  3. Adequate import compliance: Work not only on tariff regulations, that is, taxes, but also on those regulations that must be complied with in terms of NOMS (labeling, inspections, etc.)
  4. Having the registry of importers is a requirement that is difficult to understand for United States companies, since a Mexican company can import into the United States having a shipper who responds for it and having a registration number in CBP. However, in Mexico, a foreign company not registered with your RFC in Mexico is not allowed to carry out foreign trade operations.
  5. Fulfillment of the fiscal obligations of the import that is wanted to realize.
  6. Build an excellent work team with strategic allies for each link in the supply chain.

Through this interview, Carlos Arévalo shared his knowledge of customs clearance in Mexico, understanding the context of eCommerce in the US and his need to understand the “complex” Mexican regulations; that seen from their experience and knowledge becomes simpler and clearer.
