Why is the Chinese E-commerce Retailing Market Booming?

Here are the 6 main reasons why the Chinese E-commerce retailing market is booming:

  • Impressive Internet usage rate;
  • High mobile penetration rate;
  • Highly developed and integrated digital ecosystem (including the blend with social media);
  • Efficient logistics systems;
  • Wide variety of products;
  • Willingness to spend money;

Why is there No Amazon in China?

Amazon joined the Ecommerce space in China in 2004 and left in 2019 due to intense competition from the local platforms. From 15% in 2011 - 2012, its market share dropped to just 1% in 2019. The company was losing in terms of shipping speed and product variety. Its differentiating factors, including high credibility, also diminished as local players took more serious measures to deal with counterfeit goods. Moreover, Amazon was not as aggressive in its marketing efforts. This caused it to lose visibility to local giants that frequently implement large sales promotions and advertising campaigns.

Which E-commerce is the best in China?

There is no so-called ‘the best’ platform in China because they all have their expertise in different areas or product categories. Out of the most popular Chinese e-commerce platforms, Alibaba's Tmall is the top e-commerce retailer in the country. The top 3 - Tmall, JD.com, and Pinduoduo - have already accounted for nearly 80% of the total online retail market in China.

Can I open my own online stores or WeChat mini-programs for e-commerce?

Yes, you can. But there are many legal requirements that must be met before opening your own e-commerce. Here are some requirements:

  • ICP License;
  • Prohibition of Daigou (the process of purchasing a product out of China for a lower price and then bringing it back to China to resell it);
  • Taxes When Making Purchases;
  • Intellectual Property Protections;
