It’s not surprising eBay Korea has a strong export business, but what might be surprising is the top-selling product category for exports – cosmetics. eBay Korea announced its top 10 online export categories for 2014, based on sales growth and number of items exported through eBay.
Cosmetics was the top-ranking category for cross-border trade (CBT), closely followed by mobile devices and smart watches, car parts, computer components, industrial goods, fashion and accessories, household and kitchen goods, camera goods, hobby items and collectibles.
The sale of industrial goods, including healthcare devices, grew by 84 percent compared to the previous year, with a significant increase in B2B items such as generators, science experiment products and black box batteries.
eBay attributes its support in developing new Korean sellers through its professional online export system has been key. The company said its formal Cross Border Trade program supports exports to more than 200 countries.
