Royal Mail and AliExpress Extends Strategic Partnership to Link Chinese Exporters Directly to UK Online Shoppers

Royal Mail and Alibaba Group are extending their strategic partnership to link Chinese exporters directly to UK online shoppers. There is already a Royal Mail shop front on Alibaba's Tmall Global marketplace. The agreement offers new, faster Royal Mail shipping solutions to Chinese merchants on AliExpress, Alibaba's global retail marketplace for consumers. Chinese exporters will be able to supply goods for UK delivery within two weeks, much faster than standard international postage from China. Merchants and shoppers will also benefit from faster, high quality and secure Royal Mail Tracked 48 and First Class services. The new service comes in time for the 11.11 Global Shopping Festival, China's annual shopping event. Royal Mail's partnership with Alibaba supports its strategy to grow import and export volumes by developing international e-commerce solutions. Royal Mail and Alibaba have strengthened their strategic arrangement with the launch of new services to link Chinese sellers directly with UK online shoppers.

AliExpress Starts Selling Russian Goods

AliExpress announced that the company starts selling the goods of Russian online vendors and resellers of international brands. Until recently, AliExpress offered primarily the goods of Chinese sellers, while Russian online retailers cooperated with the Chinese shopping marketplace in a test mode. The cooperation of AliExpress with Russian online stores will start on November 11, 2015 the day of the traditional online sale "The Global Shopping Festival" for all Alibaba platforms. Last year, Alibaba sold goods worth $9.23 billion worldwide during this sale, with around 286 million orders made in just 24 hours. The goods of Russian vendors will be sold at AliExpress Mall that was launched in Russia this spring and targets people with higher incomes than the audience of giant AliExpress. The goods of around 20 Russian partners will be available on AliExpress starting November 11, including Wikimart, Technosila, 220 Volt, and official Russian resellers of Redmond, L'Oreal, and Baon international brands. Currently, Russian retailers are connected to the marketplace manually, but later they will be able to connect automatically.
