The rise of the on-demand economy kickstarts a new revolution in China’s retail sector
The stay-at-home economy during the height of the pandemic has transformed consumer spending habits, normalizing online shopping behavior while accelerating the growth of the on-demand retail platform, such as JDDJ. This new trend has shone limelight on the significance of omnichannel retail, with the online-to-offline (O2O) strategy being the most important growth driver for brands and their FMCG businesses.
With its deep partnership with over 200 global brands, JDDJ has secured its leadership in the on-demand retail industry. Through the Super Brand Partner Program, JDDJ plans to further share its robust omnichannel capability and infrastructure with its brand partners in an effort to achieving omnichannel strategy, category operation, marketing upgrades, and win-win results, creating seamless brand experience for customers and boosting long-term business growth.
