    • Fake goods, Credit card theft

    • Payment systems are safer now – no longer a technical problem, but a problem of confidence
      • E-commerce Logistics
        • Size and vast distances in China – delivery for most companies limited to major metropolitan areas using couriers
        • high delivery cost due to the small scale of some logistics enterprises
        • Over 70% of all purchases in the B2C market are paid cash-on-delivery (Analysis International)
        • COD presents challenges and risks for online merchants
    • Buying online is a dramatic change from conventional shopping practices
      • Consumers in China still prefer to look over the goods, determine their quality, and then, if satisfied, pay in cash
      • Online commerce, in comparison, is an alien experience that only increases risk
    •  Challenge for Internet companies to win consumers' confidence
  • Failure of eBay EachNet
    • In 2003, eBay entered China’s C2C market by acquiring EachNet (USD 180 million )
    • EachNet, founded in 1999, was China’s No. 1 auction with peak market share of more than 90%
    • Alibaba invested USD 52 million in 2003-04 to enter C2C market (Taobao.com)
    • In 2004, Taobao occupies over 50% of China’s C2C market; eBay’s EachNet about 35%
    • The battle continues – eBay spent another USD 100 million to strengthen its presence in China
    • In 2006, eBay sold 51% of it’s China division EachNet to Tom Online
    • eBay Eachnet continued to lose market share to Taobao - today, Taobao has over 80% of the C2C market share in China
  • eBay Did Not Focus on Building Up Trust
    • eBay's listings fees were only one of the reasons why customers used Taobao over eBay Eachnet
    • Many Internet users dislike eBay because of its service
      • eBay's Paypal did not seamlessly integrate escrow into the sales process
      • Taobao's popular Alipay made escrow an important component of the online buying experience
      • Later attempts by eBay to incorporate escrow were too late to help it regain lost market share
    • Initially EachNet did not allow buyers and sellers to communicate directly, while from the very beginning, Taobao allows for direct instant messaging between the two parties
