Two charts recently released by iResearch show the top 10 B2C platform market shares and top 10 B2C online retailer market shares in China for the second quarter of the year 2011. The graphs showed several facts and realities, two of which are: that Taobao Mall and 360Buy have the top 2 platform market shares and that 360Buy enjoys a pretty good share in the online retailer market (35.1% is not bad but this does not represent the majority or even half of the online retailer market share, obviously).
Case in point: Edible Arrangements Hong Kong. Edible Arrangements is a business in Hong Kong that is engaged in producing fresh fruit bouquets. These fruit bouquets are truly delicious and healthy and are arranged in such a way that even non-fruit lovers may be so tempted to try the pineapple daisies and chocolate dipped strawberries. Now, Edible Arrangements Hong Kong does not only allow the customers to come visit and order through their stores (they have two branches in Hong Kong) but their website also allows online shopping or online ordering. Individuals can order for fresh fruit bouquets through their website (http://www.ediblearrangements.hk). Business owners can also order for quick corporate giveaways through Edible Arrangements Hong Kong’s website. A lot of Edible Arrangements Hong Kong’s customers do the online route since it’s not only hassle-free but the payment gateway is safe and secure. With the many orders coursed via online retail or online shopping, it truly shows how comfortable the Chinese people are with the idea of online retails. Truly, this alone proves that going digital or going online is the way to go!
