“yStats.com report says half of online shoppers in Asia make purchases cross-border”
A new publication from Hamburg-based secondary market research firm yStats.com, “Asia-Pacific Cross-Border B2C E-Commerce 2018,” covers online retail imports and exports in 10 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. The company's CEO and founder, Yücel Yelken, comments “over half of online shoppers in this populous region shop on websites based outside their own nation”.
While more than 50% of online shoppers in the Asia Pacific region made purchases from abroad, the percentage is much higher in the city-state of Singapore and in Hong Kong. Australia and New Zealand also have a significantly higher share of cross-border shoppers than the regional average, according to surveys cited in the yStats.com report. One nation that shuns the cross-border trend is Japan, as over 90% of online shoppers there only buy in-country.
A recent survey cited in the yStats.com report indicates that cross-border purchases in the most populous nations in the Asia-Pacific region, China and India, are made through smartphones and tablets more than on desktop computers. The report also reflects that China, the USA and Japan are the most popular destinations for Asia-Pacific's cross-border shoppers.
Clothing and accessories is top product category in cross-borders shopping in the Asia-Pacific region, according to data included in the yStats.com publication. Sales of this product grouping made up over a third of cross-border volume in South Korea.
