Amazon Ready to Open a Pop-up Store on Chinese E-commerce Platform Pinduoduo

Retail giant Amazon which withdraw its domestic e-commerce marketplace business in China in July is now set to open a pop-up store on Chinese e-commerce platform Pinduoduo.

According to the South China Morning Post, the US behemoth has been shifting its strategy in the country amid fierce competition from domestic operators.

Facing stiff competition from local online marketplace operators, including Alibaba, as well as the fast-growing Pinduoduo, Amazon’s exit from e-commerce business in July ended the company’s 15 years of journey into the China market.

In the statement, Amazon said it will continue to invest and grow Amazon Global Store business in China.

Pushing the boundaries of what and where to sell, effective use of pre-order campaigns and leveraging live streaming to drive sales were the three key factors that allowed Alibaba to generate a staggering $38.4 billion in sales at this year’s Singles’ Day shopping event on November 11.
