The cross-border e-commerce channel into mainland China is growing at an exponential rate. In 2016, Chinese e-commerce sales reached almost $752 billion, while fifty-eight million Chinese customers are expected to engage in cross-border transactions in 2017.
As the world’s largest consumer market, Chinese online shoppers are paying premium prices for Western products including food, cosmetics, vitamins and luxury items from online marketplaces such as Amazon, TMall, JD Worldwide and Taobao Global. These marketplaces give foreign brands direct access to Chinese consumers, offering a wider selection of products, cheaper shipping, and more advanced technology than ever before.
The rapid movement towards cross-border trade into China has opened up immense opportunities for other foreign brands to follow suit, with many hailing it as the future of trade in China.
