Connect with Top Chinese E-Commerce Amazon FBA Sellers

WechatIMG15Curious what is happening in the Chinese e-commerce world, specifically with Amazon FBA?

Over the years, more and more Chinese factories and trading companies have been selling on Amazon, and have grown their skills and reach – and they want to connect with you! In the international e-commerce game many sellers and suppliers have been afraid of the growing number and volume of Chinese sellers and while there is reason for alarm – there are still a lot of chances for cooperation and win win opportunities.

The team here at Global From Asia along with a top Chinese e-commerce association- Popeye Incubation – have come together to create a one of a kind event – Cross Border Matchmaker – CBM.

No, we’re not talking about speed dating.

Well, yes, in the business side of it. This will be an event where we take top sellers from around the world and get them up on stage. Simultaneous translation so the Chinese sellers speak in their native tongue alongside hosts and foreign business owners.
