China Facts: One outcome of the recent ecommerce law regulation per January 1st 2019

 

 

China's daigou are both loved and loathed, depending on who you talk to. For Chinese consumers, they deliver quality western products - from vitamins to luxury handbags - that are sometimes unavailable in the Mainland, often at a lower price, and more likely to be authentic. For consumers in places like Australia, they have been known to empty supermarket shelves of products like infant formula. Brands who used to oppose them have increasingly embraced daigou as another channel to build awareness and preference for their products. By some estimates, there are half a million people working as daigou globally. The new E-commerce laws coming January 1st, although still vague, are likely to impact daigou in the most concerted effort yet to temper the grey trade. It is expected that daigou will be made to register with the industrial and commercial administration departments and pay tax on imports. *)
