Difference between domestic trade and foreign trade and their peculiar problems
Trade, no doubt, implies exchange of goods between persons, but there are marked differences between domestic trade and international trade. The differences and the complications arise therein are as follows:

Distance
The distance involved in export of goods in external trade is generally greater than on the domestic trade.
Language differences
There are differences in the languages of the nations of the world. The overseas traders should be very careful in preparing the publicity material in the languages of the trading country
Cultural difference
A producer should have full knowledge about the market of his products. For exporting goods particularly a thorough research is undertaken.
Technical difference
In the national market the difference in the technical specification for goods and their requirements is not wide.
Tariff barriers
In the national trade, there are no custom duties, exchange restrictions, fixed quotas or other tariff barriers.

Documentations
In the home trade there are few documents involved in the exchange of goods.
Payments
In the internal trade, the goods are exchanged in the currency unit of the country. In case of foreign trade currencies differ widely throughout the world and those also vary in value.
Transport and insurance cost
The transport and insurance costs are less in case of domestic trade. For the exports, on the other hand the cost of transport is high and the insurance is complicated.
