In China, noon aims to establish a trusted network of high-quality Chinese brand owners with unique offerings, to bring the best range of products to customers in the Middle East.
A dedicated noon team, with support from Chinese counterparts, has been working on the ground to meet directly with local brand owners and cultivate valuable business relationships, showcasing noon’s attentive and unique approach to digital commerce. To further grow local partnerships, noon will also be soon establishing a permanent office space in China.
“China’s booming e-commerce market has one of the most active marketplaces in the world. noon is fully embracing the opportunity to work closely with leading Chinese manufacturers to bring a high quality, value driven assortment to the region. We’re also looking to partner with top brand owners and marketplace platforms to help us curate a wider and more diverse assortment of products for our customers in the Middle East. As always, customer experience is at the core of all that we do,” says noon founder, Mohamed Alabbar.
noon has also been working with a leading financial services company that provides secure online money transfer and digital payment services, to guarantee efficient payment solutions to Chinese sellers and facilitate the process of doing business in the Middle Eastern market. Furthermore, noon is expanding its logistics capabilities in China and the region to ensure smooth and fast delivery of Chinese brands to Middle East customers.
Earlier this year noon participated at the Cifnews Cross-border E-commerce Exhibition (CCEE) held in Shenzhen, which hosts more than 50,000 professional cross-border e-commerce buyers with hundreds of exhibitors offering an array of consumer products.
As a customer-focused and Arabic-first e-commerce platform, noon brings a growing product assortment owing to connections with the local, and global, retail community. Recently noon also announced its partnership with eBay.
