The global e-commerce retail market continues to grow at a rapid pace. Increasingly US ecommerce is integrating global suppliers into marketplaces that were once relegated to US dominated brands and suppliers. The China-to-USA business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce market has seen a rapid growth in the breath of suppliers as corridors like China-US, India-US, Japan-US, South Korea-US shipping lanes have opened. Government encouragement among many of the worlds top 10 supply markets have helped encourage cross-border activity. As governments relax regulation and policy related to customs clearance, improve or simply tax regulations, and permit greater logistics flow through Free Trade Zones or Special Economic Zones, foreign suppliers stand to benefit significantly in both near and long-term economic outlooks.
Cross-Border E-Commerce in USA
The trend of purchasing goods from overseas markets started in American a few years ago and has become specially popular among younger middle-class Chinese between 26-40 years old. Many cross-border shoppers use their mobile devices to purchase goods. Popular shopping destinations include the China, Hong Kong, Japan, the United Kingdom, and India. Instrumental to the growth of this trend has been Amazon.com's move to redirect global sellers onto their flagship website. Very often Amazon shoppers are unaware that their products are being fulfilled from overseas suppliers. The interaction between seller and shopper is filtered through Amazon, allowing the shopper a perceived shopping experience that is entirely Amazon.
The outcome has been a continued increase in cross-border orders supplied by overseas merchants.
