2015: The year for cross border ecommerce

Chinese and Russian ecommerce has rocketed in recent years and the opportunities for etailers in both countries are huge!

650 million web users, $450 billion spent online in 2014, 30% growth rate… The Chinese ecommerce market is bursting with potential for international retailers. Consumers are fond of western brands, which are renowned for their quality and the country’s marketplaces are gradually becoming more open to cross border ecommerce.

Alibaba is China’s, and by some standards, the worlds, biggest ecommerce company. Its marketplaces, Taobao and Tmall, account for the majority of the ecommerce market.

Shaoming Yang, Head of Tmall Global Europe will be taking to the stage on the big day to discuss the Chinese ecommerce ecosystem and to share essential information and advice for international emerchant wishing to break into this prosperous market!

Russia is another ecommerce market to watch! In 2014 $17bn dollars was spent online and cross border sales reached roughly $5billion.

Russian ecommerce giants Yandex will also be present at LED. Yandex is one of the largest internet companies in Europe, operating Russia’s most popular search engine and its most visited website. Pavel Aleshin, head of Yandex.Market services will be presenting a keynote titled: YANDEX.MARKET as entry point to the booming Russian eCommerce.
