While consumers around the world show varying behaviors in the way they shop online, many continue to purchase online form retailers outside their home market. That’s especially true in China. Cross-border e-commerce purchases by Chinese consumers grew 86% to 219.8 billion yuan ($31.99 billion) in 2016, according to China’s National Bureau of Statistics.
