Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma brands will be offering international shipping, joining PBteen in its partnership with FiftyOne Global Ecommerce.

Products in the following categories will be available in more than 75 countries: bedding, decorative accessories, kitchen tools and utensils, tabletop, select furniture, lighting, kids’ storage, rugs and window coverings.

Currently, international shipping is available for the Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen brands in 40 currencies,. International shipping for the West Elm and Williams-Sonoma brands is expected to launch by the end of the month.

“This is a true milestone for Williams-Sonoma, Inc.,” said Laura Alber, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our brands have a strong presence in the U.S. and Canada and it’s exciting for customers around the world to now have access to the high quality home furnishings that we offer, whether buying for themselves or shipping to friends and family in more than 75 countries around the world.”

A localized homepage appears automatically, welcoming the customer with a flag denoting their country and their selected currency. At checkout, a customer can view a guaranteed order total in their own currency, including international duties (if applicable), taxes, and delivery costs, with a guaranteed exchange rate – and no unexpected fees.
