Samarkand Japan is a cross-border e-commerce company focused on connecting overseas brands with China and helping UK brands develop in Japan. They operate more than 10 different e-commerce storefronts on a range of e-commerce platforms for clients in China, and have got a proprietary technology platform that called Nomad, which powers everything that they do. Samarkand’s mission is to connect Japanese brands to Chinese e-commerce, and UK brands with Japanese e-commerce by making it simple, accessible, and profitable for brands and retailers of all sizes.
For Japanese brands, the Japan-to-China cross border e-commerce market is exciting. It is estimated to be worth over USD 25 Billion in trade per year, and Japanese brands are loved by Chinese consumers for their cool design and high quality. The rapid fall in travel and tourism caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many brands to try to sell their products online through cross border e-commerce. However, especially for SME brands and retail stores, the high cost and complexity of exporting to China hits them hard with extremely high trading costs and logistics costs and the risk of losing control of their brand when using a large local distributor.
Samarkand Japan is here to solve this challenge for SMEs.
