The questions most often heard about Chinese e-commerce (after the “Should we doing this?” “Yes we should” internal debate) has always been: “how quickly can we be up and running and how much will it cost?”
While it was historically the case that it was both a costly and time-consuming process to get an e-commerce proposition up and running in China, the truth is that things have changed. Avenue51 has just launched an Automated Onboarding process which opens up the potential of Chinese e-commerce to the majority of British SMEs in a very cost-effective, and relatively quick – weeks rather than months – process.
How much? Well, for only £1000 (yes, £1k, 100 x @ £10, or 1000 £1 coins, you get the point) and a few minutes spent filling in a simple online form, you can get your business trading on the Royal Mail Tmall Global store in China.
