Today, it's the community and recommendations that sell. Social E-commerce has been around for several years now in China. Media platforms and brands have found that people influence each other when it comes to shopping. More than 60% of Chinese consumers say friends and family members are a major source of product information, based on which they make purchase decisions. Also, mobile first culture in China, where 98% of Internet users access the Internet via their smartphone, has seen a real explosion in the importance of social networks in the daily lives of Chinese citizens. It is important to understand that the Chinese market is unique, comparable to no other when it comes to how consumers engage with the digital ecosystem where influencers (KOLs / KOCs) are the kings and queens of these social platforms and play a crucial role. China’s technological growth in the past decade has been largely mobile-driven, it has seen the booming global mobile apps industry which has permanently changed the way Chinese citizens live, consume, work and play. To respond to this growing sector of social e-commerce, Chinese social platforms have started to develop new functionalities, allowing users to buy directly on their apps. Douyin is TikTok’s name in China and its daily active user count currently stands at 400 million. The platform has a clear e-commerce integration and users can click links within each short video and complete purchases inside the app. This feature is also implemented for Livestreaming sessions. Douyin is thus a new sales channel, perfectly suited to impulse purchases.
