Overseas Start-up, Growth of the Reversed Direct Purchase Market
Korea uses the fastest internet in the world.
America’s brands Nike and Adidas have of course entered Korea,
but there are more low-priced various models in the U.S. than in Korea.
On the contrary, Korea’s global brands Samsung and LG
are cheaper or have many more new products in Korea.
The shopping scale of Koreans purchasing products from overseas through
internet shopping has exceeded a trillion won annually (940 million dollars).
Korea uses the internet fast and freely.
Even if you are an American living in the U.S.,
I access eBay and Amazon and purchase products faster than you do.
The internet speed is 50 times faster than
yours at most and is 3 times faster in general.
Also, Korea has “Incheon International Airport,” which was chosen as the
top airport distribution center for 9 years in a row.
In one word it is the country with the fastest internet in the world,
and has the fastest and safest distribution system in the world.
So we purchase your country’s products the most.
In contrast, Koreans selling Korean products to your country,
the overseas start-up (reversed direct purchase) business,
is gaining huge popularity in Korea in the second half of 2012.
It has started to draw attention as a popular start-up item.
Thanks to its fast internet and distribution system, and the
national brand that it handles the best products in Asia,
Korea sells and buys products easily.
Soon, Korea will sell stronger and many more products to you.
Compared to 2010 and 2011, the number of Korea’s
eBay sellers has increased by 102%.
The country that Korean sellers export the most through eBay is the U.S.,
which takes 83%,
followed by Australia (10%), U.K. (4%), and Germany (1%).
