Tmall Real Sales Data
Before foreign brands and retailers entering into the Chinese market, we often recommend them to take a look at the biggest Chinese e-commerce marketplaces, such as Tmall, JD and Kaola to get a feeling about the China e-commerce market, the platforms, the stores and the products. Since there is no English version of the platforms and stores, eTOC made an example to teach you how to read the data even if you don’t understand Chinese:
There are several key figures which will reveal a lot of information about the product performance, such as price, monthly sales volume and reviews. These are real market data which will be updated automatically after every transaction. For example, you can estimate the product monthly sales value by simply multiply “Shelf Price” by “Monthly Sales Volume”. The “Recommended Retail Price” is always there but crosses out. This gives the consumers a feeling of already be given a discount. “Reviews” are very important KPIs in the Chinese e-commerce business. Consumers´ feedback and insights can be read out of the reviews. Mostly importantly, Chinese consumers actually spend a lot of time to read about and are greatly influenced by the reviews before making a purchase.
For a quick check about certain product performance (e.g. similar products to your brand, if these kind of products are generally demanded in the Chinese market), this is a very good and practical way. However, if you want to check many products or need a systematic analysis, the research workload is very big and time consuming.
