Dec 18, 2013 (Wed): Borderlinx Cross Border eCommerce Solutions has revealed that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have helped generate 64.3% growth year-on-year for them and some country destinations have experienced rapid growth including Singapore (100%+), Malaysia (100%+), Saudi Arabia (98%), Qatar (84%) and UAE (78%).
Jérôme Mercier, Borderlinx CEO said, “The considerable growth in cross border e-commerce we’ve seen this year signals exciting times for Borderlinx Solutions, and we’re expecting to see these figures continue to rise into 2014. This year we have observed some interesting trends in various regions, such as a remarkable 120% growth in jeans in Saudi Arabia. Other trends, such as the decline in book sales which can perhaps be attributed to the growing popularity of e-readers such as the Kindle, are being seen worldwide. By monitoring trends such as this and reacting with flexibility alongside the value for money and reliability our customers rely on, we hope to be able to maintain the growing success of Borderlinx Solutions in 2014.”
The report also revealed that accessories had the strongest growth (110%) while clothing is still a key volume driver with 35.1 percent growth.
