Domestic vibrato has been seriously involved, but looking at the world, TikTok’s live streaming is still a blue ocean.

Among the many sites launched by TikTok, Southeast Asia and the United States are very good choices.

But there is a certain threshold for entering, and there is a deposit mechanism.

Sellers who are not good at making videos and want to purely sell goods can do TikTok by bringing goods through experts.

In 2023, TikTok’s GMV goal is to increase by 10 times compared to 2022! Definitely worth the wait!

2. Amazon

Amazon, the leader among cross-border e-commerce platforms, has sites in 17 countries around the world.

As an American company, Amazon has the largest number of American sellers, while Chinese sellers account for about 30% of the market.

Due to the platform’s restriction on the registration process,product Quality has strict standards and specifications, and Amazon has certain requirements for the professionalism of cross-border sellers.

If you do not have a certain understanding of the platform, it is easy to be closed for violations.

Amazon is suitable for sellers who have a source of goods and experience in cross-border e-commerce operations. The initial investment is relatively high, and advertising is a must.

However, some sellers have reported that the prices of products on Shopee are generally low, and we must pay attention to differentiation during the product selection process.

For sellers who continue to be Shopee, the store traffic will be more sufficient.

The difference between Lazada and Shopee, in simple terms, is that one focuses on Tmall stores and the other is similar to Taobao stores.

Lazada greatly supports the traffic of the flagship store in the mall, and the quality and price of products on the platform will be relatively high.

After Alibaba restructured the global e-commerce landscape, AliExpress focused on cross-border, while Lazada focused on local markets.

Those who have experience in cross-border operations can try to be a Wal-Mart store group.
