[Overseas Direct Purchase]
The number of Koreans wishing to buy products directly from overseas has increased sharply recently. Accordingly, the number of purchasing agents who buy the desired goods on behalf of the clients also is increasing. Statistics Korea reported that the sales of overseas direct purchase surpassed 4 trillion won ($3.3 billion). Seeing a great growth potential of the market, even university students and office workers, who want to make extract money as a side or second job, are jumping into the enterprise. And there is a reason for this: the market is relatively easy to enter for novice who has no previous or related knowledge. It also does not require initial capital and worry of stocktaking. But like many other businesses, it is really difficult to make profit out of it. The statistics show that most starters have closed their business within 3 months of opening. This is the point where a help is needed and a South Korean startup has developed an easy tool: Ezy-Q.
Ezy-Q is a bulk product collecting and register solution introduced by Nanuri Korea. It helps search and register products traded on the global market fast and efficient. Using Ezy-Q, a diligent purchaser can register up to 1,000 products a day. Naverstore allows you to register up to 10,000 products but most ordinary purchasers are struggling to register even one product a day. If you are one of the ordinary, you might be surprised on the fact that Ezy-Q can collect all products traded on Taobao, a Chinese online shopping platform, with simple keywords. For example, if you type ‘trench coat’, it collects you hundreds of the products according to colors and reviews. You can also take a photo of the clothes on TV or online channels for search and create detailed web pages by copying, for example, the desired pages of Taobao in Korean. Creating detailed web pages in fact is one of the most time consuming parts for many novice startups. But Ezy-Q lets you to register tens of products a day if you have a talent to pick selling products and this helps you focus on product register and selling. “If you invest 2 hours a day, you can be a shopping mall owner with the assistance of Ezy-Q. We are running training, marketing and customer services teams who are ready to provide you with help. If you want to learn about the business, we also run a number of courses including a Second Grade Online Shopping Mall Operation Certificate on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thrusday” says Heonjin Lee, CEO of Nanuri Korea.
When it comes to e-commerce, logistics and delivery often decide success or failure. So, securing fast and efficient logistics networks is very important. In order to do that, Nanuri Korea has established Nanuri Logistics in China. It checks goods, bridges local sellers and Korean sellers, and minimizes any possible problems and hassles to ship the goods to a warehouse in Pyeongtaek, South Kore, nice and smooth. Around 300 individual sellers are currently growing their businesses with the assistance of Ezy-Q. “The growth potential is great and we welcome everybody who is willing to grow business together with us” says Lee.
