Abstract

See full text

Consumer goods sold through international ecommerce sites can be classified using pertinent information extracted from data related to previous sales/shipping of commodities. A database stores historical information related to previous sales of commodities, including a description of the commodity, HS code, weight, size, etc. When a consumer makes a purchase of a commodity on-line with a request for an international shipment, the server operating the seller's website provides descriptive information related to the commodity being sold to a classifier server. The classifier server accesses the database and performs a search of the information stored in the database using the information provided by the seller's server to find a best match for the commodity being currently sold. The classifier server will then determine one or more parameters for the commodity based on the historical data stored in the database, that are used to calculate the fully landed cost for the commodity.
