There are a few non-negotiable requirements to register on Tmall Global: The company must be registered overseas/ Merchants should own a trading license/ Merchant must be the brand owner or have the brand re-selling authorization/ Merchants need authentic products. Now, all documents must be in mandarin for the request to be reviewed. We help you go through the whole process and figure out the cost which will depend on the type of store your open as well as the products you sell which usually takes between 1 to 2 months.
Tmall Global hosts a number of events and offers marketing tools to merchants. We optimize your traffic acquisition process on-site by setting-up compelling campaigns. It could be native advertising (paid ad integrated into the app) or by launching a special edition for an event, get ready for shopping festivals (discount/gamification/ store design, etc).
Outside of promotion, having a store on Tmall global requires as much work as an e-commerce store anywhere in the world, except that it has to be in Chinese mandarin. We design appealing stores taking into consideration the habits of Chinese netizens online for a smoother navigation experience. We manage your listing, your content and take care of the customer's services.
Unfortunately, opening an eCommerce store in China is not enough to 1: Get Traffic 1: Get conversion. And While you could still get some traffic with on-site marketing using Tmall merchant tools, chances are your conversion rate would be too low for a positive ROI. The solution is to implement an omnichannel strategy. Chinese consumers use various apps and social media daily and are used to be exposed to brand communication. Data are also showing consumers spend more and more time researching a brand online before committing to it. If your brand is nowhere to be found on the Chinese internet, we have some bad news for you.
