Beyond Launches BGM - Unlocking China e-Commerce for US and European SMEs
Updated: Jun 13, 2020
BorderX Lab is excited to announce the launch of a new feature in our flagship mobile commerce app Beyond – the Beyond Global Marketplace. The new Beyond Global Marketplace (BGM) is a self-serve platform that offers brands a streamlined onboarding interface to quickly place their products on the app to begin selling to China and beyond.
China currently has the largest e-commerce market in the world, with 40% of its shoppers regularly buying international brands. Our Beyond 别样 App user growth in China is outpacing its overall competitors, and is especially popular with shoppers aged 23 to 32. Beyond 别样 App’s loyal customers browse approximately 25 minutes a day on the app, and spend an average of $183 per order.
BGM allows small and medium sized merchants and brands to upload and maintain their product inventory and orders without outside help. It broadens the China opportunity for U.S. and European sellers that can use extra sales during this difficult retail era.
Getting started is a simple 3 step process: Apply, upload, and begin selling. There is no integration fee, or advertising commitment. The BGM platform is merchant friendly, and will assist with cross-border marketing, payment, logistics, and more so our merchants can focus on offering their high-quality products to the global Chinese consumers.
