Q. Who would you say the market leaders are from an e-commerce perspective?  i.e what companies are you aware of that provide a complete outsourced online shop(s) through to order handling and fulfillment on a multi-country basis?

A. I think there are a limited number of Ecommerce solution providers that can deliver this. There are more that work on in individual countries or markets, but fewer which can offer the international fulfillment.

For me, these are best known suppliers which I believe have the scale to help you I would recommend taking a look at :

1. GSI Commerce international Ecommerce solutions

2. Amazon Fulfillment Web Service (Amazon FWS)

3. Venda Ecommerce Fulfillment

To review others I suggest you download the Gartner Ecommerce Leaders Magic Quadrant:
