China Cross-Border E-Commerce (CBEC) Solution
According to PwC’s Economic Quarterly Q1 2017, Chinese online retail scales of goods and services reached 1.40 trillion yuan (AUD$290.6 billion) in the first quarter, 32.1% higher than a year ago.
China has been the largest and most innovative retail eCommerce market in the world. Based on PwC’s report, Chinese online retailing is expected to grow from 17% of total retail sales in 2017 to 25% by 2020.

This great success in online retail is mainly driven by Chinese ecommerce giants like Alibaba and JD. However, if speaking of cross-border ecommerce in China and only these two giants pop up in your mind, then you obviously need to cramming knowledge in this area.
