Alibaba Wants to Dominate Russia Too: AliExpress Expands in Russia With One-Day Delivery

East-West Digital News:

AliExpress, the Alibaba subsidiary which has overwhelmed the Russian e-commerce scene with cheap Chinese products, is still expanding aggressively in the country.

The Chinese company, which opened its platform to Russian merchants in late 2015, has announced that domestic deliveries will be performed in just one day.

At start, the one-day delivery standard will apply to some Samsung and Apple smartphones, Asus and Lenovo notebooks, Philips headphones and some other items delivered to 20 Russian cities. […]

Cainiao, the logistics arm of Alibaba Group which recently launched in Russia, will provide the required logistics services.

AliExpress launched in Russa three years ago and started to grow fast in the market early on.

Recently, AliExpress launched a live video service in Russia.

In India, for contrast, a whopping new 41.49% tax made AliExpress more costly for Indian customers.

Launched in 2010, AliExpress is allowing small to mid-size Chinese companies to sell their products to international customers.

AliExpress is a marketplace like Alibaba’s own Tmall or Wish, with the latter being a very similar distribution channel to the world abroad for Chinese vendors.
