Shopify US and JD.com have announced joint collaboration.

It is unlocking the world’s largest e-commerce market for merchants by giving them access to one of China’s leading e-commerce marketplaces, according to the press release.

Compared to the 12 months typically required for foreign brands to begin selling in China, JD’s streamlined channel, JD Marketplace, will allow Shopify merchants in the US to get started in as quickly as three to four weeks.

To support merchants in their effort to begin selling into China, the channel will provide:

  • Expedited onboarding to help merchants sell quickly
  • Logistics that handle end-to-end fulfillment from JD’s US warehouses directly to consumers in China, leveraging JD.com’s China-US cargo flights, 1,300+ warehouses and 200,000+ delivery personnel in China
  • Smart price conversion to local currency based on foreign exchange rates, typical category pricing, as well as VAT and Consumption Tax
  • Intelligent translation of product names and descriptions
JD.com is thrilled to partner with Shopify. We believe that the partnership will unlock the huge potential of the Chinese market for brands outside of China. At the same time, it will increase cross-border commerce by leveraging our global supply chain abilities, simplifying what has traditionally been a very complicated process
