Paypal has just announced that it is bringing consumers access to low-cost products via a new mobile store, in cooperation with Chinese wholesale marketplace DHgate. Users can reach the new site by visiting m.dhgate.com, which will implement PayPal’s Mobile Express Checkout.
PayPal claims to have over 94 million active accounts around the world, and has been helping Chinese merchants access overseas customers for some time now. This new deal will make it even easier for those sellers to access customers outside China’s borders.
This marks the second PayPal deal that we’ve reported here recently, as the company partnered with Singapore Airlines a few weeks back to enable travelers to purchase flights with just a few clicks.
But DHgate is PayPal’s largest client in the Asia-Pacific region according to its website, and having an established and recognizable service like PayPal on board for mobile commerce transactions certainly gives it some credibility.
Because lets face it. Some people might be a little cautious about the Made-in-China brand. Take this Russian man’s experience for example.
