Shopify cooperates with JD, one of the largest e commerce and logistics company in China, in order to help US sellers to sell products in China. Do you look forward to it?
In fact, Shopify had dipped its toe into China market in 2020 by permitting the sellers on its platform to get paid by Alipay, owned by another Chinese e commerce giant–Alibaba. But this tie-up with JD is far-reaching.
As a Shopify seller, would you like to sell products in China? JD has more than 550 million annual active customers and JD logistics is fast. We often receive our packages several hours after we place the orders on JD.
Fast delivery make happy customers. Do you think so?
Compared to the typical 12 months for foreign brands to start selling in China, JD would speed up the process so that Shopify sellers can only take 3 to 4 weeks to set up a store via the cross-border e-commerce site of JD.
Worried about how to ship your products from US to your Chinese customers? Take it easy. JD logistics will take charge of shipping, as well as the price conversion.
Shopify and JD agree to simplify access and compliance for Chinese sellers who want to sell products in US and other overseas markets. And I think the tie-up between Shopify and JD is a win-win situation.
JD has made international expansion in Europe, and this cooperation with Shopify will make JD obtain more international market shares. Moreover, JD will make better use of its logistics advantages to become more competitive.
Study shows that the worldwide e-commerce fulfillment services market size is anticipated to reach USD 168.72 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 10% from 2021 to 2028.
