QuestionsDomain for international ecommerce
btgaby asked 2 years ago

 Is it a bad idea to have a domain for my ecommerce that ends with com.br ? Our initial target audience are customers in the US and Brazil.

Where are you shipping your product from?
 
As a customer in the United States I would prefer a .com over .com.br
I think mostly because it is just more common. All the sites I go to are with .com and rarely do I ever go to a .com.br site
 
For customers in Brazil you will have a lot more people that regularly go to sites that end in .com.br.
If you can get a .com I think that is the best way to go but if you are primarily selling in brazil a .com.br site is fine to.
