Amidst the rapid growth in cross-border eCommerce, CedCommerce announces the launch of ‘Coupang Integration for WooCommerce‘. This strategic collaboration aims to empower WooCommerce merchants globally to sell on South Korea’s biggest online marketplace ‘Coupang’.

The vision of the two leading eCommerce players revolves around opening opportunities through the most affordable and competitive solution.
Poised to become the third largest e-Commerce market by 2025; South Korea is an online seller’s dream come true eCommerce hub. South Korea currently possesses one of the highest internet penetration rates in the world. Over half of all retail transactions occur online, and over 74% are via mobile devices. Furthermore, tech-savvy Korean customers also demonstrate an increasing demand for cross-border items. The list includes fashion and food items being the most popular product categories.
5 reasons why Coupang is the Seller’s Choice
Coupang’s mission is to create a world where customers ask, “How did I ever live without Coupang?” It is increasingly becoming a reality with the company’s growing market penetration. Moreover, this customer-obsessed platform offers just as much value for enterprising sellers.
That being said, following are some highlights:
Customer Centric Platform
