The biggest South-east Asian online retail market on eBay is in Thailand. It’s where Thai business is blooming, connected to a huge English language customer base.
About Thailand eBay
The California based e-commerce firm has been considered the holy grail of exports to anything from small to big-size businesses. With one of the vigorous South-east Asian markets for product manufacture, Thailand has managed to surpass Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia in trading value as well as the number of sellers on the eBay platform.
While the country has embraced it’s business-to-consumer functions, consumer-to-consumer and auctions services have been less popular within the country. However plans are to extend business within C2C in which we are likely to see increase, while keeping it’s main stance on export.
