eBay (EBAY) and Global Sources (GSOL) have formed a strategic alliance to offer a new service called Global Sources Direct to create more sourcing opportunities for eBay's PowerSellers in China and around the world.
Global Sources will provide its clients with the opportunity to market their merchandise directly to individuals and businesses in China through eBay EachNet, eBay's website in China. eBay EachNet's PowerSellers will therefore be able to easily find more sources for high-quality products at lower prices.
The service will also subsequently be provided worldwide via eBay's Reseller Marketplace, an off-eBay B2B website designed to help eBay PowerSellers source products for resale on the eBay marketplace.
With its warehousing, supply chain and payment services, Global Sources Direct aims to be the most robust service in the China market. It also aims to offer suppliers the greatest geographic and distribution channel scope.
