Why platforms are better

The Chinese don’t trust the standalone site, we always shopping the platform to get granting. And standalone site need more team member to do the social media marketing, SEO/SEM in the search engine. But as a foreigner, you don’t familiar with the Chinese market, it will get more cost to manage them. And if you using platform, you can force on the shop itself, make great ads, and nice support.
