Before starting your shopping agent journey, please briefly read this introduction of Chinese popular e-commerce platforms.
Tmall: Tmall.com is an open and the largest business-to-consumer (B2C) retail platform in Asia, enabling businesses worldwide to access China's vast and burgeoning consumer market. Tmall.com has established itself as the destination for quality, brand-name goods catering to increasingly multifarious Chinese consumers and is the most popular B2C online retail website in China. As Tmall sets high standard for products, most of its products are slightly higher than the average market price. But its reputation is great. If you are seeking for good-quality products, we recommend you to choose Tmall.
Taobao: Founded by Alibaba Group on May 10th, 2003, Taobao marketplace facilitates consumer-to-consumer (C2C) retail via providing a platform for small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to set up online stores that mainly cater to consumers in Chinese-speaking regions (Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) and elsewhere. As there are so many sellers on the marketplace with different levels of reputation, it might be difficult for consumers to choose the right things. In order to avoid any unnecessary loss, we recommend consumer to check out the seller's reputation, such as whether this store provides deposit or not, or check out the store's rating and customers' reviews.
JD.COM: Back to the early stage, JD used to be an e-commerce for electronics but nowadays, it has become a comprehensive e-commerce platform where most of the products' price is relatively cost-effective. Focus on customers first, JD make promises to users that all the products sold are 100% good-quality and authorized, just like the products you bought from the local market, with guarantee, invoice, professional delivery and after-sales care. After JD has transferred to a platform, an increasing number of sellers have established their online stores at JD. However, delivery time and after-sales quality are not guaranteed anymore. We recommend users to choose JD self-support items as priority.
