The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce and the EU SME Centre have the pleasure to invite you to a seminar focused on ‘How to successfully sell products online in China’. This event will take place on Thursday 19 March at 09h00 at the Port of Antwerp.
E-commerce and the efficient use of focused modest marketing budget have become key aspects to take into consideration for EU SMEs when developing their strategy in China. However, the lack of reliable and trustful information makes it difficult for businesses to make informed decisions. Small EU businesses should be particularly aware of the rapid growth of e-commerce platforms in China which has diversified the entry modes to the country, providing them with more channels to sell to the market. This workshop is designed for brands, merchants, entrepreneurs and E-commerce practitioners with a solid interest in developing E-commerce projects in China in the coming future. Our expert will provide a clear and practical view of the e-commerce environment and options for EU SMEs in China and help companies assess the potential, costs, implications, advantages and disadvantages of each of those alternatives.
The following topics will be covered:
– China at a glance
- E-Commerce market size and performance
- Market trends
- Chinese Consumers Behavior
– Selling online in China
- Modes of Selling Online
- Third Party Platforms in China
- Cross Border E-Commerce
- Payment Methods
