Our China ecommerce solution
China ecommerce landscape
In just a few recent years, Chinese ecommerce market has become one of the most developed ones in the world. Well functioning ecosystem of online payment options and powerful mobile segment has made this market one of the important components of Chinese economy overall. China became the world’s largest online retail market in 2013, when total sales reached $307 billion. China ecommerce sales are projected to continue growing at 25% average annual rate, reaching $1 trillion by 2019.
According to the most recent data, three quarters of B2C market belong to just two platforms – Tmall and JD, while Taobao enjoys near complete dominance of C2C market with 95% market share. The relatively recent entrant into mobile ecommerce space, WeChat WeiDian is also gaining strong momentum in China m-commerce space.
Since none of the foreign ecommerce players were successful in gaining any meaningful market share, using the local platforms remains the most effective way to sell directly to Chinese online shoppers.
