Alibaba's JV with YNAP: a short-cut to bridge their trust gaps with Chinese shoppers and with brands

Article

In OC&C’s recent research on Chinese luxury online shoppers, we found that international platforms like YNAP and Farfetch scored among top 5 for overall satisfaction by Chinese users, mainly due to their ability to guarantee product authenticity, and for the breadth of their offerings, including in-season products.

Both Alibaba’s Tmall and JD.com have been struggling to attract luxury brands and build attractive luxury E-Commerce platforms. Alliances with international players seem to be the best way to reach their goals.

Farfetch was already partnering with JD.com (JD is one of Farfetch’s major shareholders).
