Moreover, there is high penetration of smartphone users in Taiwan. Also, smartphones and tablets are providing convenience to consumers in online shopping. Consumers do not need to turn on their PC or sit in front of a desk to do online shopping like before. They can easily use their smartphone or tablet to purchase online whilst they are riding a bus or the MRT (rail transit service). Internet retailers all notice the changes and are willing to invest more in mobile internet shopping.

Competitive Landscape

Yahoo! Taiwan led internet retailing in 2014. There are two business-to-consumer online retailing platforms under Yahoo! Taiwan. One is Yahoo! Buy Mall and the other one is called Yahoo! Super City. They charge a different percentage of fees from internet retailers. The main difference is that Yahoo! Buy Mall is run like a department store or supermarket, so buyers need to pay to Yahoo! Buy Mall directly. Yahoo! Buy Mall handles the charge and returns. Some consumers feel more comfortable to deal directly with Yahoo! instead of individual online retailers.

Industry Prospects

Mobile internet retailing will be the trend over the forecast period. It will grow fast due to the rising number of technology-savvy consumers. More older consumers have also started to learn and use smartphones recently. Especially, the cost of smartphones has declined significantly. More consumers are using smartphones to purchase online because of the convenience. They can place an order anytime and anywhere, such as waiting for a bus or on the MRT.
