JD Worldwide Sources Products Directly from International Malls
by Rachel Liu
JD Worldwide (JDW), JD’s platform for imported products, announced on November 15th that it will be working with leading international shopping malls and e-commerce platforms to directly source products from their offline stores or official websites. Popular partners from Japan, US, South Korea and more countries including Rakuten, Kintetsu, AUTOBACS, SOLETRADER, Muller, AKPLAZA, LUXBOY, Tiendas Agatha and Qoo10 have joined the project. Malaysian e-commerce platform PGMALL will be the next to join.
JDW works directly with the partners to launch the latest products, such as Burberry watches, Samsonite suitcases, Dyson vacuums and more from their stores or online platforms simultaneously on JDW. Previously, the partners’ flagship stores featured on JDW were not always the most up to date versions. JDW will transfer the orders to the partners for them to send products to customers directly from overseas, without third-party transit.
Partners usually delivered imported products through the bonded warehouses, which could take a relatively long time for the orders to reach customers’ hands. Now, the direct source project allows customers to enjoy authentic new products from all over the world in the fastest way. For partners, this not only adds a new sales channel in China with lower logistics and warehouse cost, but also help them test the Chinese market and cultivate best-selling products in a convenient way. Additionally, JD Worldwide can offer richer imported product choices for customers through this project, especially non-standardized and high-value products like fashion and electronics.
To optimize customer experience, JDW provides special services for the flagship stores which joined the project, such as exclusive customer service and 30-day quality assurance. Any shopping malls or e-commerce platforms interested in tapping into China’s market through JD Worldwide can apply via https://www.jd.hk/cooperation_en or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
