Why Sell into Taiwan?

Taiwan is considered a developed ecommerce market offering opportunity for growth along with a stable and predictable legal environment. The ecommerce market in Taiwan has experienced rapid growth in recent years thanks to a widespread internet usage and a growing number of young shoppers buying online. Taiwan’s government has actively used legislation to facilitate and regulate the ecommerce market. Taiwan’s ecommerce market has a comprehensive policy infrastructure and a good network of financial, distribution, and credit systems.

At the beginning of 2020, Taiwan launched its first cross-border ecommerce incubator in Taipei, marking an acceleration in its electronic business development. Since 2014, Taiwan has recorded noticeable growth in its digital commerce. The revenue from the ecommerce sector almost doubled in four years, and the share of online retail continuously increased to 5.1% of total retail in Taiwan.
