Offline retailers face some major challenges that limit their potential of reaching the world beyond their immediate environment and make a huge profit.
They lack the technical experience to make their business online. Since the adoption of the internet has boomed over the years, the internet has been seen to be a marketplace where retailers can easily reach an untapped market which is normally beyond their reach. Because offline retailers lack the technical knowledge to run an online business, they hire developers to help them. Developers or e-commerce managers collect a huge amount of money from the offline retailers to help them. This may not be the fault of e-commerce managers, as they also go through a lot (in terms of cost and processes) to bring all useful tools that the online web service need into one place. These tools range from adverts to payment options, delivery services, etc.
Huge costs and Language Barrier
Retailers (both offline and online) also face the challenge of boundaries. Their good and services are needed out of the country of residence because they sell at a very cheaper price. There is a great market opportunity for their business in other countries but they are limited because of their language, tax requirements, and regulations, transaction fee, delivery, etc. Consumers also face the risks of getting a worse quality than expected since they are transacting online. Because of this, they need a third party agent to serve as escrow.
For example a retailer who lives in Nigeria may face a lot of challenges sending his goods to another country (e.g. France) because of many limitations like language (the official language in Nigeria is English, while in France is French), border fees, taxes and other paper works which usually take a lot of time to complete. Getting paid is another challenge he has to look into. Sometimes because of the transaction fee (and other fees), the amount to be paid by the consumer may double the actual amount requested or to be received for various payment options. This forces the retailer to significantly lower the prices of his goods or services (to cover the huge fees) so as not to discourage the buyer who is in another country. Better still he may choose not to sell.

Payments Made a lot Easier
With the aid of the smart contracts that are on the platform, both buyer and seller are made secure. Money is made secure with the smart contracts on the platform. The smart contracts automatically pay the seller on the delivery of goods after it has been checked by a third party agent for quality as agreed. This rules out the cost incurred with cross-border deliveries since fiat currencies are not used. The blockchain technology and smart contracts do not increase transaction fee because of distance.
