Thanks to Edward Weinert for alerting me to this.
The Jingdong online mall has started an English-language website.
Their tablet section begins here. For cellphones, go here. For JD-Exclusive New Arrivals, go here.
Cellphones and tablets can now be ordered from Jingdong and shipped to America.
I wonder how this will affect all of the small middleman sellers that have usually filled that gap?
And how long before Alibaba offers this?
Taking the friction and uncertainty out of buying Chinese cellphones and tablets can only increase their popularity and put increasing pressure on second-tier global brand names such as Asus and Acer — and even on first-tier global brands that seem not to care at all, such as HP.
One response to “Now You Can Order In English From Jingdong”
Alibaba has an ebay-like site called Aliexpress with many sellers (some reliable some not – note the ratings system) that sell world-wide.
