British luxury clothing brand Hackett London grew its international online revenues by 97%

Partnering with Global-e immediately impacted our international online performance. Within 3 months of implementing their solution we have already seen an amazing growth in our international online revenues, across both our key markets and markets that were largely untapped. We are delighted with such great results in such a short time frame and look forward to further growth.

Within three months from implementing Global-e’s cross-border solution, the luxury men’s brand saw an increase of 75% in its number of international online orders.

The Challenge

Hackett London was already selling online internationally, but they faced several barriers that impacted their ability to fully realise their cross-border ecommerce potential. These included a multi-step international checkout, no support for calculating and pre-paying duties and taxes at checkout and only being able to accept payments via major credit cards and PayPal. Additionally, they had to send their stock from their hub in Spain via the UK to their international customers, which increased transit times. These obstacles had a negative effect on their international sales and conversion rates. Hackett London sought an advanced cross-border ecommerce solution with a proven record of success supporting leading retailers and brands which would enable them to optimise their online international sales and provide their international customers with an enhanced online shopping experience.

The Solution

In order to increase its global conversion rates and increase international online sales, Hackett London chose to partner with Global-e, the leading provider of cross-border ecommerce solutions. With Global-e, the brand can now provide international customers with a seamless, localised online shopping experience tailored to local preferences and shopping behaviours and in line with its high standards of customer service and marketing goals:

  • Localised welcome pop-up and marketing banner – for customising key marketing messages for shoppers such as promoting free shipping offers over specified thresholds
  • Local pricing presented in local currencies – set local pricing per market according to the brand’s business strategy and rounded according to local market conventions – 95+ currencies supported
  • Localised one-step checkout page supporting more than 20 languages
  • Guaranteed calculation of all import duties and taxes to prevent any surprise charges upon delivery, with the option of prepayment at checkout
  • Express shipping at competitive rates, including free shipping worldwide over specified thresholds
  • A variety of the most commonly used local payment methods in each market – more than 150 methods are supported including local and alternative payment methods
  • Transparent and easy returns process – at fixed low rates

The brand was also able to grow sales in many markets that had seen very few sales previously, such as Sweden, Denmark and Mexico which are now among Hackett London’s top international markets.

The Results

In just three months since partnering with Global-e, Hackett London has seen impressive results; conversion rates have increased by 77%, online international orders have also increased by 75%, and international revenues have increased by 97% (all YoY). Hackett London has also increased its global reach and is now actively selling to more than 70 international destinations.

As a luxury menswear brand, providing a guaranteed calculation of import duties and taxes and offering shoppers to prepay them at checkout has had a marked impact in international sales in many markets worldwide. 74% of Hackett’s global cross-border shoppers choose to prepay duties and taxes when offered, while in the USA for example, the rate is even higher at 82%.

In addition, supporting a wide variety of the most popular local and alternative payment methods in different markets has also had a positive effect on conversion rates. In the Netherlands, for example, 41% of Hackett’s shoppers choose to pay using iDeal, while in Belgium, 15% of shoppers choose to pay using Mistercash.

By localising the shopping experience and tailoring it to the unique characteristics of every local market, including offering competitively priced shipping rates, the brand has seen impressive results from its key international markets with very significant increases in order numbers and conversion rates YoY from these markets.

The brand was also able to grow sales in many markets that had seen very few sales previously, such as Sweden, Denmark and Mexico which are now among Hackett London’s top international markets.

Since partnering with Global-e we can offer our international shoppers a greatly improved online shopping experience and this has been reflected in the fantastic results that we have seen so far. We have also been very impressed with Global-e’s professional support and market insights that enable us to continuously improve our international online results.

About Hackett London

Founded in 1983 by Jeremy Hackett and Ashley Lloyd-Jennings from a stall on London’s Portobello Road, Hackett London’s first shop sold only second-hand clothing. From its humble beginnings, over the following years Hackett London started designing and selling its own items and expanding its ranges to include personal tailoring and bespoke services through to formal wear, business wear, smart casual, sportswear and accessories as well as boy’s clothing. In 1989, Hackett London started its international expansion, opening a Spanish branch in Madrid. In 2015, Hackett was acquired by M1 Group and by LVMH subsidiary, L Capital Asia, and became the official clothing supplier to the Williams Martini Racing team the same year. Hackett London now has 160 stores globally with its flagship store on Savile Row.
