The Spring Festival is around the corner. While local store sellers will be operating normally, the business of many cross-border sellers in China will be affected due to the impact of logistics holidays and factory shutdowns. But this won’t affect the enthusiasm of the local buyers as most of them will still be going on shopping sprees before the holidays. So let’s not miss this oppotunity and get ourselve ready for it!

Sources of products were also experiencing shortage and delay in supply. To avoid these issues this year we need to stockup our inventory beforehand.
