Note: In Q1 2016, Bongo announced the cessation of the Extend product. AspDotNetStorefront will remove it from future releases.
Bongo Internationalis a 3rd party service that allows customers outside of the United States to sign up for US forwarding addresses, which they can use when shopping on eCommerce sites. During checkout, customers can enter the US address that they got through Bongo, so your site doesn't have to worry about handling overseas shipping! Ship the customer's package to the address they entered, and Bongo will forward it on to the customer overseas.
AspDotNetStorefront integrates with theBongo Extendservice, which allows US stores to tell customers about this great service through the eCommerce site, and easily expand the site's customer base to non-US countries, all at no cost to the site owner!
