Southaven’s ecommerce system was purchased by China’s e commerce company, China Mobile, and will be used to sell the ecommerce platforms of Southaven.
Southaven CEO Scott Hutton said the Southaven System will provide the platform with a robust set of tools for developers to build their ecommerce businesses.
“China Mobile has been a fantastic partner for Southcom and Southaven for a number of years.
They’ve been a great partner for us to be able to work on the Southcom platform, and we’re excited to continue to work with them,” Hutton told the Australian Financial Review.
He said Southaven and China Mobile have a number in common.
Southaven’s current ecommerce platform is the SouthCom eCommerce Platform, which has been used by the Southland eCommerce marketplace for a few years.
But Hutton says China Mobile is planning to use the SouthBean eCommerce platform for SouthBeans eCommerce app and ecommerce service.
That means it will be the platform for the South-East Asia eCommerce Marketplace (SEAEME), a marketplace for Chinese sellers.
It will also be used by Chinese online merchants to sell SouthBeanners eCommerce platforms.
Hutton said SouthBeanee’s platform will be a core part of the Southcomm eCommerce offering, and the platform will also support other ecommerce solutions from China Mobile.
In addition, Hutton expects the SouthComm eCommerce system to be available to other eCommerce companies that want to make use of it, such as Amazon, Walmart and Ebay.
A Chinese ecommerce company called Alibaba has been building out its ecommerce business in Southaven since last year, and Hutton hopes the Southwestern ecommerce marketplace will eventually expand to include China Mobile’s Chinese eCommerce solution.
However, Alibaba has not said when it plans to roll out the Chinese e commerce solution in Southcom.
The Southaven Marketplace is currently in the testing phase, and it is expected to be ready for use in the third quarter of next year.
