The turnover of this year’s “Double 11” shopping festival reached 57.1 billion yuan ($9.32 billion), as shown on the screen at the headquarters of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, on Nov 12. Many newspaper around the world where spreading this news, but there is more behind.

Unlike visiting brick-and-mortar stores, online shopping may seem a lonely experience as there are no salespeople fawning on you or recommending things that they think would interest you.

Though they lack in human interaction, online websites do know what you are looking for, thanks to big data technology.

Big data usually includes data sets with sizes beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, curate, manage, and process data within a tolerable time.

The real impact of big data in online shopping was evident after the recently concluded “Double 11” shopping festival. Shoppers could find slightly different front pages when they visited Taobao and Tmall, the two major online websites of China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. Based on previous shopping records, Alibaba recommended goods that suit your tastes and needs, to ensure that there is something that will certainly interest you the moment you click on the website.

Was sind Ihre Erfahrungen mit der Kundenansprache in China via Internet? Wir würden uns über Feedback freuen.

Was kommt nach dem Internet? Wir wissen es nicht, dies gleich vorne weg. Jedoch eines ist klar, es ist globaler als wir denken.

Während Forrester Research für Europa ein Wachstum beim E-Commerce von 12.5% pro Jahr bis 2018 prognostiziert haben wir hier schon einige Artikel dazu geschrieben. Das Potential von e-Commerce ist gerade in China noch riesiger. Es ist aber sicherlich wichtig, die Erfolgsmodelle aus Europa nicht eins zu eins nach Asien oder China übertragen zu wollen. Asia Briefing hat hierzu gerade ein E-Book mit dem Titel “E-Commerce Across Asia: Trends and Developments 2014” veröffentlicht. Dieses können Sie auf Ihrer Homepage beziehen.

If I asked you to name the biggest online shopping day of the year, what would you guess? Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Free Shipping Day in mid-December?

Guess again.

Even though Cyber Monday sales were spectacular this year, as online sales surged 20 percent and beat Black Friday receipts, the day didn’t top November 11, Singles’ Day in China. Singles’ Day is a day of celebration for people who are single and has become popular among the young in China…

In December 5, 2013, the People’s Bank of China, Ministry of Information Industry, China Banking Regulatory Commission, China Securities Regulatory Commission, and China Insurance Regulatory Commission jointly issued a notice warning citizens about the risks of Bitcoin. The immediate response was a steep drop in the bitcoin price, led by the Chinese exchanges.

The reaction from foreign commentators ranged from panic to measured optimism. Posts on Bitcointalk ranged in title from “China Bans Bitcoin” (a post that has since been deleted), to discussions regarding the extent of the restrictions. Gigaom reports that the government is calling for the registration of all Bitcoin transaction services and their users, Bloomberg declares that China has banned financial companies from Bitcoin transactions, and Reuters adds that while China will act to prevent illegal activities with Bitcoin, individuals remain free to use it.

Rather than providing a full translation of the notice, the five main points are, in summary:

Bitcoin is not a currency;
Financial institutions and payment companies may not engage in Bitcoin-related businesses;
The government will exercise increased oversight of Bitcoin-related websites;
The government will act to prevent money laundering risks associated with Bitcoin; and
The public should increase its awareness of and education regarding currencies and investments and their inherent risks.

Alipay, the eWallet of the e-Commerce giant Alibaba has allready about 100m of users. We discusse in the west if Bitcoins are good or not – while the Chinese Plattform BTC makes 1/3 of all Trades. This are just two facts which are showing to me, that we should rather look to the east then allways watching what Apple or Google brings next. The country of the copy-cats is on the move to be the leading e-Commerce nation. Not only by the numbers of online shoppers. Further more in the online eco-system. We will be watching carefully and share our views in this Blog or at our Events. Therefore let’s have a deaper look into Alipay and the ali-wallet.
