hong-kong

Do you plan to open a multi-currency business account in Hong Kong but not sure what options you have? Perhaps you have tried to open a business account with some banks, but got rejected.

I understand your frustration in that case. Luckily, there are service providers, such as Neat HK, that allows foreign companies to open multi-currency bank accounts in just a few days and without the need of even visiting Hong Kong.

Neat HK has shaken up the banking industry in Hong Kong and made it possible for many small companies to open local bank accounts.

What is Neat HK?

Hong Kong is the preferred location for FinTech companies, startups, and eCommerce sellers that want to incorporate in Asia. Even if it’s comparably easy to open a company in Hong Kong, it’s become significantly more difficult for small companies to open local business accounts.

Hong Kong’s banking industry has been bashed on much in the past years as locals and foreigners suffer from the hurdles to open local personal and business accounts.

Therefore, Neat HK was started in 2016. The founders, David Rosa and Igor Wos, both have a long experience from the banking industry and knew what issues SMEs and startups had to deal with when trying to set up business accounts in Hong Kong.

Wine Distributors in China: A Complete Guide

Posted on 1 Comment

china-wine-distributors

Foreign companies have opened their eyes to China’s wine market, which has grown at an impressive rate in the past 5 years. The most popular option when selling wine in China is to first identify and establish partnerships with local wine importers and distributors.

These companies can help you to get your products online and on the shelves quickly, with low upfront costs. That said, finding a distributor on your own can be a challenging task. Therefore, I’ve written this article where I explain about China’s wine market, how you can find wine distributors, and some of the top importers and distributors.

China’s Wine Market

China’s wine market has exploded and sales volumes grew almost 100% from 2013 to 2017. However, even if the Chinese continue to develop a strong craving for foreign wines, the market has become more stagnant recently and the competition among foreign and local brands intensifies.

In 2018, the demand for wine decreased by 9%. At the same time, imports by volume decreased by 14% and imports by value decreased as much as 20% during the first half of 2019. The number of wine importers has decreased by around 35%, so there’s an evident trend that the wine market is in a turbulent situation, at least temporarily.

7 Top Selling Products on Taobao.com

Posted on Leave a comment

taobao-top-selling-products

Taobao is the biggest eCommerce website in China, together with Tmall, it accounts for around 80% of the market. What sets Taobao apart from other established eCommerce websites is that it’s a C2C (consumer to consumer) website and was started years before Tmall and its competitors.

People all over China buy from Taobao thanks to its competitive prices, wide assortment of products, and fulfillment capabilities. Many foreigners ask what products that are in great demand on Taobao, that’s why I’ve written this article where I list some of the most popular products on Taobao. First, let’s check what some of the differences are between Tmall and Taobao.com.

What are the differences between Taobao and Tmall?

First of all, Tmall is more premium than Taobao and mainly cater to consumers in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities. In fact, its name originates from the term “Taobao Mall” and you’ll find more branded and foreign products on the website. Taobao, on the other hand, has a wide selection of less exclusive products that are produced in China.

Taobao is known for being more price sensitive than Tmall, a reason why it’s popular in the smaller cities. Worth mentioning is that not everyone can sell on Taobao as you need to have a Chinese company before you can start selling on the website. That’s not the case with Tmall as foreigners are allowed to open stores and sell on its cross-border website, Tmall Global.

1. Clothing Products

Just by visiting Taobao.com, you’ll notice that there’s an ocean of clothing products like shoes, bags, pants, sweaters, you name it. Even if the website is more price-sensitive compared to Tmall, you’ll find everything from cheap Chinese products to Gucci bags. Don’t be surprised if you find a dress priced as low as USD 5 or a scarf for USD 2. Continue reading 7 Top Selling Products on Taobao.com
