Macy's is to start shipping to 91 countries outside the US.

Department store retailer Macy's Inc is to begin shipping outside of the United States to 91 countries through its Bloomingdale's and Macy's stores.

By partnering with international e-commerce services provider FiftyOne, the two chains will now ship to locations including Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.

The announcement made yesterday (27 June) will allow international customers to shop online for men's wear, women's wear and children's wear as well as jewellery and home products.

Non-US-based shoppers accounted for 36m visits to Macy's e-commerce site, last year, the company said.

International customers will have their purchases automatically converted into their local currency and the site will provide a final price including an exact quote of the duties and tariffs associated with shipping.
