Stockholm, May 5 (ChinaEuropeNet) — Sitting in my Stockholm’s home, I can register in Taobao online shopping and they had a special overseas service. But due to payment details, I gave up. Also I didn’t want to buy the massage sofa because my mother said she didn’t need it. Later I changed my mind to buy sleeping pyjamas for my parents.

On May Day they went back to our countryside home. And I asked my niece to order two sets of silk pyjamas for my parents. It is easy to buy online. I contacted my niece through wechat. And I paid her through wechat. She ordered the pyjamas in Jinzhou, a middle sized city in China and she is good at buying online. And we both buy for my parents in the countryside. She told me that the Shunfeng Express och Chinese DHL can’t send to Dizangsi village yet.

I like to say when Shunfeng can reach Dizangsi, then China is really commendable. That means there is no place online goods cannot reach.

The following is the Xinhua news about online reatailing in China.

Online retailing is changing the supply structure of goods and services in China’s rural areas and accelerating rural consumption upgrade, an industry report said.

As rural infrastructure continues to improve and big e-commerce platforms start targeting rural customers, more high-quality products are available for consumers in rural areas, the Academy of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade said in the report.

Data showed rural residents are nowadays more inclined to buy home appliances and digital products online, said the report.

Rural residents expand the sales channel of agricultural products through online retailing and earn more money, thus leading to robust growth of rural consumption, said the report.

In the January-March period, rural online retail sales reached 439.79 billion yuan (about 68 billion U.S. dollars), increasing 35.3 percent from a year earlier, according to data released by the Ministry of Commerce.

Online sales of agricultural products amounted to 105.58 billion yuan in the same period, representing a year-on-year growth of 4.9 percent, the ministry said. Enditem
