If your company is registered as a foreign company, it may be more difficult to launch sales in China. However, there is still a way out. Start selling on JD.hk official website.
Foreign companies often face many barriers when they decide to open a business in China. This is especially true for large e-commerce sites. For this reason, in 2012, Jingdong launched a separate international platform JD.hk, or Jingdong Worldwide. JD.hk differs from JD.com as foreign legal entities can sell their goods here.

The main difference between JD and its competitors is the developed logistics infrastructure. The company currently manages 28 logistics parks and 750 warehouses with a total area of 18 million square meters.
How to organize logistics?
In case of SOP the seller has to deliver the goods from the warehouse to the buyer within 12 hours.
In case of FBP option the seller pays JD for warehouse leasing and logistics services. This option limits the number of available cities. It should also be borne in mind that the percentage of sales in case of this delivery option will be higher.
Jingdong has its own channel for setting up targeted advertising - Jingzhuntong. Conditions for promotion in JD.hk will depend on the specific industry of the advertised goods. There are two types of ad delivery available: CPM or CPC. The good news is that there are no minimum deposits.
You can open a store on the official website of JD.hk and launch the first sales to China today!
