SYDNEY, Sept 11, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - One of China's fastest-growing retail e-platforms, Aomaijia launched an Australasian office in Sydney last week and signed agreements with local brands Sukin, Kids Smart, Nestle Australia, b.box and Tasmann UGG, who'll join fellow brands Swisse, Blackmores, Devondale, Bellamy's and a2 Milk in becoming available to 30 million consumers across China with the Aomaijia e-commerce platform.

Aomaijia has rapidly developed China's most innovative e-commerce program, not simply selling foreign-made products to Chinese end users, but providing an entire suite of services to deliver products from the supplier through the supply chain to sales channels and customer delivery - cutting out agents and maintaining better control of branding and distribution in the world's largest market.
Speaking at the Aomaijia Sydney Roadshow, Group CEO Ms. Meggie Liu said, "Aomaijia distinguishes itself by only dealing directly with manufacturers, or their appointed agencies. The Aomaijia platform was created to give suppliers, like those in Australia, control of their branding in China, as well as control over distribution, sales volumes and ultimately their profits.
"Unlike China's two best-known online retail platforms Taobao and T-Mall, 90% of the products on the Aomaijia platform belong to international brands. This differentiates the Aomaijia platform, which is dedicated to supporting the branding strategy of international manufacturers," said Ms.Liu.
"Other online trading platforms allow overseas companies to connect quickly with millions of Chinese consumers; but they have significant limitations. The biggest drawback is that online malls sell many products through second-hand agents, who in many cases may not be appointed by the producer. They generate sales but the trade-off is a loss of control in branding, distribution and retail pricing."
Australian brands will not only benefit from access to China's most sophisticated retail e-commerce platform, but from Aomaijia's entire suite of services, from supply chain financing and management through to technical services such as tracking end users with tailor-made CRM solutions.
Aomaijia's marketing and sales network consists of a mobile phone app, the online retail site, and a sales mini-program operated on the WeChat platform. Aomaiji also has 14 physical stores in key locations across China's major cities, from Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuhan and Zhuhai to Wuxi. Aomaijia, with an aggressive rollout strategy, plans to open nearly 100 stores nationwide in the coming year.
Aomaijia calls its retail outlets 'dual-line stores', allowing customers to connect online while browsing in-store, enjoying a more efficient shopping experience. The stores not only allow a customer to try new products, but to track individual products across the supply chain from entry into China right to the dual-line sale. This gives Aomaijia's consumers absolute confidence they are purchasing genuine products through recognized channels.
Established in 2015 in Guangdong, Aomaijia launched its online platform the following year. In 1H 2019, Aomaijia's total customer base grew more than 200%, and it now has more than 30 million registered users across its three digital platforms. In total, Aomaijia sells more than 100,000 product lines across 3,000 individual brands.
