China Telecom Beijing branch has opened a flagship store on the Internet e-commerce website Taobao.com, providing 3G terminal products such as 3G network interface cards, 3G mobile phones, and 3G netbooks as well as communications services such as wireless broadband service, 3G wireless packages, and voice service packages.
Compared with products sold in China Telecom's business halls, those in the online store are offered synchronously, but with lower prices. At present, the online store only targets users in Beijing.
If users buy products and services from China Telecom's online store, they can gain discounted prices, free delivery within the areas of Beijing, and other gifts. All products sold in the online store can enjoy a twelve-month nationwide warranty.
According to reports in local Chinese media, China Telecom Beijing also plans to set up specialty stores on Tencent's Paipai.com and Baidu's Internet shopping platform Youa. Prior to this, China Telecom formed channel cooperations with several e-commerce websites, including 360buy.com, Dangdang.com, and Joyo Amazon.
