The eCommerce Innovation Lab (EIL) is an office within the U.S. Department of Commerce's U.S. Commercial Service, that focuses on advancing the expertise and knowledge of cross-border ecommerce and digital strategy among all U.S. small and medium-sized businesses.

The EIL does not view "ecommerce" as simply a transaction, rather we view ecommerce as a sales channel that crosses all industries that sell or promote brand awareness online as a part of a businesses' overall digital strategy.

If you have any questions, or would like free 1 on 1 ecommerce counselling, please contact James.Bledsoe @ Trade.Gov or contact a Local International Trade Specialist near you!

Prepared by our U.S. Embassies abroad. With its network of 108 offices across the United States and in more than 75 countries, the U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce utilizes its global presence and international marketing expertise to help U.S. companies sell their products and services worldwide.
