There are various variables involved in the conducting of the shopping between borders, not only nationally but internationally as well.

For example one might be influenced by the taxations that occur between different countries to have a negative or positive attitude towards the shopping. Not only is one motivated by the taxations and the different sales avenues that are experienced in cross-border shopping but also other variables that exist in the case, which might include the tariffs, currency exchange rates, restrictions, governmental regulations, border crossing costs and access among others. When these variables are fully and expansively articulated and brought into consideration one is able to have a view of what to expect in conducting a cross-border shopping (Zinser and Brunswick ).

Research Hypotheses Borders have been implemented to ensure that certain policies and jurisdictions are respected and observed throughout the world. For example, there are various customs that are shared by the people of the United States not experienced in other parts of the world as well as laws that govern these citizens, and as such require to be respected by the other people of different diversities in the globe.

He used a city in Canada that was separated by hundreds of miles from larger cities to carry out his hypotheses upon. It was evident from these previously conducted studies that the Canadian border was experiencing a lot of cross-border shopping mainly from those who travelled to other parts of the United States to make their purchases. The security offered to the people and the availability of policies that were entrusted to this effect ensured that the completion of the trading processes between the different geographical positions was effective. Among the studies that are considered for the research are the models proposed by Koiter and his fellow authors in 2004. According to this model, there are functional and technical constricts that determine the quality of the products that influence motivation in the shoppers.

For instance the natural resource that influences cross border shoppers to travel to other regions for product purchase. In the aim of growing Canada’s economy certain policies and regulations concerning outside shopping are implemented in the Canadian borders that govern the cross-border shoppers on the different taxes that they should pay for the goods purchased. These taxes are imposed not only on Canadian who shops from other regions but those from other regions shopping in Canada. How long did it take for the products to be processed for purchase and what were the tariffs experienced? 4. What experiences were perceived at the border protection and customs offices? 5. To what extent were the regulations, restrictions and laws fair or unfair during the process?
