JD.com, Inc.

Russian Post will sign an agreement on intentions with JD.com (China), one of the world’s largest online stores, on 29 July. JD.com launched a website in Russian on 18 June, making it the second Chinese online store to enter the Russian market over the last year after AliExpress (a subsidiary of Alibaba Group).

In May, JD.com concluded an agreement with another Russian partner – the express delivery company SPSR Express, TASS reports. JD.com does not yet have any warehouses, pickup points or representative offices of its own in Russia. However, JD.com international division chief Victor Xu has not ruled out that infrastructure will be set up soon.

Other JD.com partners in Russia include the online store Ulmart, Yandex.Money and Qiwi. Cooperation with Ulmart involves the delivery of goods via a Russian online store network as well as the ability to order goods via a partner website, Ulmart investor relations director Brian Kean said.

The Chinese company JD.com is coming to the Russian market. Unlike competitors AliExpress and eBay, JD.com is a traditional online retailer with proprietary warehouses and a delivery network.

JD.com will launch a Russian-language website jd.com.ru on June 18, according to Viktor Siuy, President of the company's division in charge of operations outside China. Russia is the first foreign market for JD.com, “our first stop”, Viktor Siuy said.

While no Russian legal entity has been incorporated so far and the local office is not yet ready, JD is planning to do just that, a partner in the company told RBC. JD’s main competitor, the Chinese holding company Alibaba, which launched its AliExpress online store in Russia in 2012, only opened a local representative office there in May 2015.

JD is planning to develop its own logistic capacity and warehouses in Russia going forward, Viktor Siuy said. He refused to elaborate, citing the company’s public status.

Unlike AliExpress or the US’s eBay, which operate as web aggregators offering products from different companies and individuals through their web sites, JD.com is a traditional online retailer with proprietary logistics, including warehouses.
