Pilibaba and PrestaShop partner to open up the Chinese Market to E-Retailers outside of China.
New partnership provides e-retailers with the ability to enter one of the world’s largest ecommerce markets
Paris – Ecommerce platforms Pilibaba and PrestaShop have joined forces to open the world’s second largest economy to foreign merchants, retailers, and businesses.
Pilibaba, a one stop ecommerce solution which specializes in delivering easy, fast, and free access to the Chinese market, have partnered with PrestaShop, the leading open source ecommerce platform, to provide online merchants from around the world with access to a pool of over 650 million Chinese e-shoppers.
With Pilibaba unifying payment, marketing, and logistics into a one-click solution, Chinese consumers will have direct access to foreign products, which were previously only available through grey market resellers.
Powered by China’s burgeoning middle class, demand for western brands, luxury goods, cosmetics, and health supplements continues to grow daily, with demand often outstripping supply.
Through Pilibaba and PrestaShop directly connecting buyers to sellers, Chinese consumers are not only provided with the most competitively priced products possible, but a truly safe global ecommerce environment.
Keen Sun, the founder and CEO of Pilibaba stated:
“Through the partnership of Pilibaba and PrestaShop, we are bridging the gap between East and West, enabling companies both large and small to sell their products directly to Chinese consumers. We are a truly one click solution which provides a complete payment, and logistics service. At Pilibaba we are proud to provide over 650 million e-shoppers in China with this service, and we look forward to working closely with PrestaShop.”
PrestaShop CEO, Corinne Lejbowicz added:
“There has never been a more exciting time to be in ecommerce. Companies like PrestaShop and Pilibaba are tackling the complexity of cross-border commerce so e-retailers of all sizes can reach hundreds of millions of Chinese shoppers. PrestaShop has years of experience helping merchants to sell goods and services internationally. We’re therefore delighted to partner with Pilibaba because we believe the Chinese market represents a very significant opportunity for all PrestaShop merchants.”
