Doing business online is so common in China that anyone you meet on the street may own an e-commerce store.
All you need to do is open a free account on Alibaba's Taobao and start selling your products.
The widely-used smartphone messenger WeChat can also be used to sell goods since it has an integrated e-payment system.
There are nearly 10 million online stores on Taobao alone, selling all kinds of items ranging from a pair of socks to unfinished skyscrapers.
While on WeChat, which has a billion daily users, almost everyone has a friend trying to sell imported products, of which cosmetics are the most popular.
The e-commerce craze has been on for a decade and the services around the business have revolutionized with time.
Now, shipping companies like SF Express can transport a laptop from Changsha, the capital of central China's Hunan Province, to 2,600-kilometer-away Harbin, northeast China's Heilongjiang Province, in just 24 hours, something considered unimaginable in many parts of the world.
