Our first seafreight shipment of New Zealand products to Japan arrived just 10 days ago and we’ve immediately launched several brands new to the market. It hasn’t taken long; already one product is being snapped up by Japanese customers and has hit #1 in its category on Amazon Japan.
Initial sales of the Real Nappies Bioliner have exceeded all our expectations, and the bonus is that the higher a product ranks in these bestseller lists, the more the snowball effect boosts sales.
“Japan can be a tough market for New Zealand businesses to break into, with language barriers and significant challenges at the border. With a good team behind us we have shown what is possible with the World Wide Access approach to exporting,” says Alister Gates, VP Business Development for Asia.
Our next shipment for Japan will be closing towards the end of September. If you are interested in selling your products in the third-largest e-commerce market then contact me today at [email protected].
