Hartford, CT - DealerConnect™, EasyExport’s proprietary tool for creating relationships between international dealers and American sellers of guns, parts and accessories, generated commercial orders in September that propelled EasyExport sellers to their best month ever. First-time orders placed with EasyExport sellers by dealers in Canada, France, and Switzerland, drove a 37% increase in the value of international orders processed by EasyExport in September relative to the previous high. Other commercial orders in September were placed by dealers in Hungary, Sweden, and the Philippines, among other countries. Overall, the value of orders received by EasyExport sellers is growing at an annual rate of more than 200%.
EasyExport uses custom-built software and a team of export specialists to manage all the tricky paperwork and risky aspects of selling guns and related products to international customers, so American sellers can ship by themselves safely and in compliance with regulations. Beyond enabling sellers to sell and ship internationally, a central part of EasyExport’s mission is to fuel sellers’ growth, with the objective of making international sales 20% or more of their revenues.
DealerConnect is the most powerful tool EasyExport has introduced to date to help to stimulate its sellers’ international growth. DealerConnect enables the more than 90 international dealers, distributors, ranges and gunsmiths currently registered with EasyExport to create a profile of their business and send it to as many EasyExport sellers as they want with a request to open a trade relationship. The whole process takes them less than five minutes. Sellers are eager to broaden their international distribution channels and have responded enthusiastically. There is no better proof of DealerConnect’s power to make growth happen than the first-time orders EasyExport sellers received in September that wouldn’t have occurred without DealerConnect. EasyExport introduced DealerConnect in July 2022.
“Most of what we now do at EasyExport is aimed at helping the companies that work with us grow their international sales,” said Jeff Grody, EasyExport co-founder and CEO. “The software and systems we built between 2019 and 2021 are finished and give us the ability to process sellers’ international orders for regulatory and shipping requirements instantly for prices as low as $15 for orders under $100. Shifting our primary focus to sellers’ growth, we rolled out our Merchant Insights monthly data packages for sellers in May, introduced DealerConnect in July, and went live with the Trusted Exporter page of our website in August. In November, we will launch our first major marketing campaign aimed at drawing international buyers to the EasyExport network of sellers. Other projects are in the works for 2023.”

EasyExport does all the regulatory heavy lifting for you to ensure that your international shipments are safe and reliable. EasyExport’s software clears most orders for shipment immediately. In other cases -- when an order cannot be shipped until after an export license or import permit has been obtained -- EasyExport places a hold on the affected items so they can’t be shipped. EasyExport staff obtains export licenses and approves import permits, removing holds as these tasks are completed. Sellers are free to ship when the holds are gone. With most orders cleared instantly, companies using EasyExport frequently ship international orders the same day they are received.
EasyExport’s service doesn’t end with clearing orders for shipment. Ensuring that shipments reach their ultimate destination is critical. EasyExport supports sellers with the tools, information, and advice they need to label packages properly, select the right carriers, interact with freight forwarders effortlessly, track international shipments, and set buyer expectations regarding delivery times.
