TOKYO, Dec. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Shanghai transcosmos Marketing Services Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shanghai, China; CEO: Eijiro Yamashita; transcosmos China), a wholly-owned subsidiary of transcosmos inc., is proud to announce that with its e-commerce services primarily for TMALL and JD, clients generated gross merchandizing volume (GMV) of over 2.909 billion yuan (about 46.32 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen) on November 11, China's Double Eleven Shopping Festival.
Unlike previous years where the campaign ran only on November 11, 2020 Double Eleven campaign period was extended to fully stimulate consumers' buying appetite. The campaign was conducted in two phases this year, first from November 1 to 3 (3 days) and next on November 11 (24 hours). Accordingly, each platform tallied up each brand's GMV for 11 days, from 12 a.m. November 1 to 11:59:59 p.m. November 11, an extension from only 24 hours on November 11 in the past. The first Double Eleven - a mega national shopping event in China - after the novel coronavirus outbreak showcased China's strong consumer appetite and its potential. During Double Eleven, TMALL achieved GMV of 498.2 billion yuan (about 7,931.3 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen), whilst JD reaching GMV of 271.5 billion yuan (about 4,322.2 billion yen, converting 1 yuan to 15.92 yen). And, transcosmos China provided its services to nine brands that were ranked in the TMALL "1 billion yuan club" (brands with 1 billion yuan sales or higher during Double Eleven).
Year after year, Double Eleven continues to heat up, and expectations for new retail services also keep rising among e-commerce shopping malls and brands alike. Against the background, service providers are facing tough times for they must show their collective strength including capabilities to gain ad resources from the platforms, grasp on and off-peak periods, select items, operate data, manage consumer operations, and more. As a TMALL five-star partner, transcosmos China secured advertising spots and resources, and ran them both online and offline from the night before the Double Eleven pre-sales period, ultimately helping clients hit a record high GMV during Double Eleven using data tools and a variety of marketing techniques.
