With demand for quality imported goods rising among China's 100 million middle-class spenders, Tmall Global, Alibaba Group's cross-border e-commerce platform, is planning to recruit new and interesting products and brands from overseas, releasing them via the Tmall Global channel, and helping merchants grow in the China market over the next three years.
 
Tmall Global, which claims a user base of more than 40 million Chinese consumers, hosts more than 14,500 international brands from 63 countries and regions. The exercise will help it attract more young and affluent consumers in China.
 
"On one hand, we will continue to introduce big brands. On the other hand, we want to see more brands with personality. We wish to build a dynamic ecosystem to cater to the niche and diverse needs of Chinese consumers" said Tmall global general manager Alvin Liu at Alibaba's Hangzhou, China, headquarters. 
 
Tmall Global, which enables international brands to sell online directly and efficiently to Chinese consumers, said the number of product categories on the site climbed nearly 50 per cent in 2016 to 3,700. Some categories getting sales traction include electronic beauty devices, fresh food and dairy, wine and pet food, the company said.
 
Company officials said more than 80 per cent of the retailers it hosts made their China debut on Tmall Global. In the year ended March 31, 14 storefronts achieved GMV of at least $14.52 million, including Australia's leading pharmacy Chemist Warehouse, American fashion retailer Macy's, Japanese drug store Matsukiyo, and supermarkets Costco from the US, Sainsbury's from the UK, Metro from Germany and emart from South Korea.
 
Tmall Global and Taobao Global, a platform owned by Alibaba hosting agents and distributors to sell products from overseas markets, ranked as the number one and two cross-border online shopping platforms in China in the fourth quarter of 2016, according to research firm Analysys. The platforms captured market shares of 18.9 per cent and 15.4 per cent respectively.
 
To engage digital-savvy Chinese customers and raise awareness of new products, Tmall Global will team up with brands to invest in content marketing via social media channels. It is also encouraging merchants to expand their distribution channels within Alibaba's ecosystem by setting up flagship stores for best-selling products on Tmall.com, China's largest B2C online shopping site. In addition, Tmall Global is also promoting partnerships between overseas retailers and Tmall Direct Import, a special online sales channel designed to test and promote new products. (SV)
