Digital Shoppingby Jungeun ShinKIC the Globe Vol. 10 / Fall 2014 Without a doubt, electronic commerce is a global uptrend. E-commerce refers to trading services using online networks, such as the Internet. In other words, it is online shopping between business and consumers or business and business. In both developed and developing countries, the online market is expanding its size. In a developing country like China, the online shopping mall is quickly expanding along with the Internet. The biggest e-commerce corporation, Alibaba Group, has contributed greatly to the Chinese market. Alibaba was founded in 1999 and has grown rapidly. It earned 52.50 billion Chinese yuan in 2014, which amounts to approximately $85.87 billion dollars. Alibaba already surpassed Amazon, America’s biggest e-commerce market. Considering that about half the population of China does not have access to the Internet, China seems to have huge potential to grow in the e-commerce market, or perhaps it already has.Not only is China’s online market growing, the rest of the world is also experiencing a similar phenomenon. This is mainly because of the positive perception people have on the Internet market. Undoubtedly, convenience is the most influential factor for consumers. Nowadays, we can find computers and smart phones practically everywhere. Widespread penetration of the Internet and smart phones contributed to the convenience of online transactions. Online transactions tend to be direct and do not require as much capital because they are able to reduce the costs associated with them. Online malls are wholesalers themselves, so that they do not have to go through many cumbersome steps typically required in transactions. Offline shops, on the other hand, have to go through many processes including purchasing from factories and managing delivery costs in between them. They also have to invest a lot on the shop itself with carefully chosen location and trained employees. Inevitably, they have no choice but to increase the price of goods and services with which they deal. This growth of e-commerce is expected to continue with massive potential though we do not know the direction of the growth yet, for it is still in the process of developing. However, we do know that globalization will play a significant role in how e-commerce will advance. People now have more access to information about foreign goods than before. Consumers have become smarter and smarter by being able to compare prices and quality of local goods and those of the international market. This is also what incentivized many Korean people to purchase directly from overseas; it has become a trend. According to Korean Customs service, about 1.5 trillion-won worth of goods are being bought through direct overseas-purchasing. Many Koreans believe that they can purchase better products at better prices through foreign shopping malls. Consequently, many companies that buy goods from foreign countries for the Korean consumers are emerging. Often, foreign online shopping malls do not provide international shipping to Korea. Thus, these companies help customers with overseas delivery. It works like this: customers request goods from a foreign online mall to deliver to the company that then sends the package to the customers. This way, Korean consumers can buy foreign goods from malls that do not provide international shipping. Korean buyers purchase foreign goods through such companies because even through all this burdensome process, the overall cost is lower than purchasing the same goods in Korea. The uptrend of e-commerce will continue to expand along with direct foreign purchases. The market has so much potential and advantages that will outcompete offline shops. This is also good for customers since the competition among sellers will not only exist domestically but also globally. The price of goods will decrease in general, and offline stores will also take part in the competition with their own decreased prices. Hopefully, e-commerce will even promote enhancement on individuals’ lives.
