eBay said a new partnership with Shanghai-based cross-border firm Winit Corporation will provide Chinese sellers with greater opportunity to reach overseas markets, including the US, UK, Germany, and Australia.
The agreement, signed last month, will offer comprehensive warehousing services to eBay China sellers and promises to enhance the customer experience.
Key features of the deal, which will mean faster delivery to customers and an easier returns service, include:
- A one-stop, cross-border supply chain solution, supported by overseas warehousing;
- Full-package services ranging from international shipping to overseas warehouse management;
- An end-to-end transparent tracking system and business consulting services including inventory management and business expansion.
The partnership seeks to provide eBay China sellers with more business opportunities in categories such as Home & Garden, Parts & Accessories and for other large and heavy products, while improving the overall retail shopping experience for the customer.
eBay told ECNS.cn, “Sellers can enjoy full-package services ranging from international shipping and overseas warehouse management to last-mile delivery. In addition to the end-to-end transparent tracking system, value-added business consulting services based on big data will also be available to sellers, including inventory management and business expansion.”
The article said Winit has established four warehouses in the U.S., UK, Germany, and Australia since 2013 and lets Chinese sellers “compete with overseas counterparts by improving delivery efficiency and quality, and optimizing the return and exchange experience.”
Managing Director, eBay Greater China, John Lin said in eBay’s announcement, “We continue to invest in enhancing our China CBT (Cross Border Trade) retail export business and this new partnership helps us bring even more CBT sellers to the market.”
