We know about Alibaba’s Singles Day shopping festival on Nov 11th but have you heard of the 12.12 sales event on Dec 12? A month and a day after Singles Day, the 24-hour 12.12 sale is catered for C2C Taobao Marketplace’s smaller e-tailers, who have difficulty competing against deep-pocketed major brands that sell on Tmall, a B2C site, during Singles Day.
And it’s not just in China: international stores from various countries including Taiwan, Australia, Thailand, Korea & and Japan have jumped on the shopping bandwagon. Last year, Double 12 generated sales from more than 49 million Alipay users with 300,000 overseas shoppers& helped to connect 1.5 million merchants to 110 million shoppers.
