Daraz launches DExports, opening international markets for local sellers
In collaboration with Alibaba, Daraz has launched DExports, a program that will give local sellers the opportunity to list their products on Alibaba’s B2B website, thus, enabling them to reach a larger, and global customer base. Daraz is providing complete support to local exporters to help them capitalize on this opportunity in the form of free-of-cost training, knowledge sharing and offering a full ecosystem of payments and logistics support.
The 2018 acquisition of Daraz by Alibaba opened up a number of opportunities for the Pakistan-based e-commerce leader. Since then, Daraz has been able to leverage Alibaba’s expertise in technology and online commerce to drive growth at the national and international levels and has become a strategic channel partner for Alibaba.com. DExports is a product of the collaborative relationship between the two companies.
As Alibaba’s local partner, Daraz will assist Pakistani sellers to list their products on Alibaba.com through an annual membership program which will give them complete access to the global market. Daraz will support local exporters by providing them with essential knowledge regarding global trade. As the leading e-commerce platform in South Asia, Daraz will also share unique insights on digital entrepreneurship with local sellers. Through the DExports program, local sellers will be able to reach over 300 million buyers in more than 200 countries including Russia, South America, Africa, Canada, United Kingdom, France, and the USA.
“Daraz will bring unprecedented opportunities for Pakistani exporters using Alibaba.com’s Gold Supplier Membership. With its local knowledge, experience in e-commerce and training facilities, Daraz has the potential to unlock hidden export potential in thousands of sellers across Pakistan,” Jan Poeter, Head of Cross Border, Daraz
The membership to the program is divided into three different gold categories: basic, standard and premium. Each of these categories has their own benefits. Overall, the program will help in maximizing exposure to buyers globally for companies registered with Alibaba’s B2B website. Moreover, it will help in building a relationship, growing businesses and gaining credibility. This means that getting authenticated by Alibaba.com would help sellers not only build instant credibility with buyers but also to acquire more business.
