Online Payment & e-Commerce in China 2012, Report 2
Online Payment and e-Commerce in China 2012 is the newest edition to our series of reports covering online payment and payment providers in China.
In the past few years, China's e-commerce market has been expanding rapidly. When this report was first published in 2009, only 50.6% of transactions were processed through an online payment channel. Today, more and more payments are occurring online: 73.9% of transactions are processed online and only 11.6% of transactions are cash on delivery. In this report we identify the characteristics of the Chinese online payment market and China's B2C e-commerce market. We identify the problems payment providers and online merchants face, and we explain the solutions that are key to overcoming these problems. Ultimately, this report provides the reader with a deeper understanding of e-commerce and online payment in China today while simultaneously displaying the trends that help shape future developments in the market.
