Alibaba.com is mostly known to U.S.-based ecommerce sellers and retailers as a global trade platform to help them source products from suppliers around the world.
Successful ecommerce merchants are smart about every step of their supply chain. A platform like Alibaba.com makes it easier by providing access to more than 150,000 listed suppliers that manufacture just about any product you can imagine.
And we’re happy to say today, for U.S.-based small and medium-sized businesses, it’s no longer just about sourcing from Alibaba.com, it’s about new selling opportunities on the platform. In the U.S., B2B ecommerce will hit $1.8 trillion by 2023!
U.S.-based merchants sell on Alibaba.com
The world’s largest B2B ecommerce marketplace has expanded its platform to U.S. merchants to list their stores and products and sell to millions of wholesale buyers in the United States and around the globe. ShipStation is thrilled to partner with Alibaba.com to grow business-to-business trading opportunities for U.S. merchants.
ShipStation and Alibaba.com will work together on providing resources to help sellers take advantage of these wholesale opportunities. ShipStation users will have the option to work with Alibaba.com’s U.S.-based Seller Success team and when sellers use ShipStation, they can more efficiently process, fulfill, and ship the orders.
See you at these Build Up events
ShipStation is also teaming up with Alibaba.com on its U.S.-wide tour of Build Up events which kicks off in Brooklyn, NY today and travels to Los Angeles on July 26 and Chicago on July 30 before hitting many more cities around the country, including ShipStation’s hometown of Austin in October.
These interactive, educational workshops are designed to help businesses grow and better access the demand, supply, tools, and services available on the Alibaba.com platform and through the ecosystem of partners. ShipStation’s own fulfillment expert Krish Iyer will be on the panel in Los Angeles and Chicago.
