Brazil's cross border platform and characteristics Time:2021-7-14

With the development of various cross-border platforms in full swing, almost all countries in the world are occupied by various cross-border e-commerce. We are familiar with Amazon, eBay, wish, shopee, etc. There is only one place that is still undeveloped, and that is Latin America.

Although Latin America has a large area, its e-commerce development is very slow due to limited conditions. Now, with other markets becoming increasingly saturated, Brazil, the fastest-growing and best developed country in Latin America and one of the BRICs, is in everyone's eyes.

Brazil's industry ranks first in Latin America. The main industrial sectors include steel, automobile, shipbuilding, petroleum, cement, chemical industry, metallurgy, electric power, textile, construction, etc. Nuclear power, communication, electronics, aircraft manufacturing and military industry have entered the ranks of advanced countries in the world.

Brazil has developed agriculture and animal husbandry, and is the main producer of sugar, coffee, citrus, corn, chicken, beef, tobacco and soybean in the world. Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer and exporter, known as the "coffee kingdom". Brazil is also the world's largest sugar producer and exporter, the second largest soybean producer and exporter, and the third largest corn producer.

Brazil's population is close to 200 million, ranking fifth in the world, and its demand is considerable.

But Brazil customs clearance is very difficult. The local customs is very strict in the examination of imported goods, especially the electrified, magnetic, liquid, gas and other products that may be judged as dangerous goods in other countries, and some products that need to be examined are more difficult to pass through the customs in Brazil. Brazilian customs has blocked most cross-border e-commerce sellers, but at the same time, it has retained Brazil's huge consumer demand.

On the Brazilian e-commerce platform, you can find that many products bought on Taobao in China only cost 10 to 20 yuan, but they are sold in Brazil at 10 times or even higher prices, and the sales volume is very considerable. If compared with the same products on Alibaba, the price difference is even more shocking.

What should we pay attention to

when doing Brazil market?

(1) Culture.

There are some special cultural beliefs and taboos in Brazil that can't be violated. In the process of choosing products and providing services, we must be careful to avoid getting moldy. When dealing with Brazilians, it is not appropriate to give them handkerchiefs or knives. The gesture of "OK" used by British and American is very obscene in Brazil.

(2) Logistics.

Due to the long time and high cost of customs clearance, it is necessary to select a reliable logistics provider. At the same time, to set the time limit of stores, we must set the number of days we can meet, and make a good emergency plan. The logistics time of domestic delivery is too long. It usually takes 30 to 60 days, and even 90 days in some places. The clothes that customers buy in summer are already in winter, and they are out of season. Long logistics time brings bad experience to shopping.

(3) After sales.

Brazilians attach great importance to after-sales service and product quality in terms of consumption. According to the survey, nearly 60% of online sales in Brazil are repeat customers, indicating that as long as the products and services are hard enough, there will be good sales data. But the return rate is also very high, due to various reasons: Customs card, directly returned; The tariff is too high and the customer abandons the goods; For a long time, customers don't want any more, which leads to a very high return rate. There are many orders in the Brazilian market, but the return rate of more than 20% is even higher, which undoubtedly adds extra costs to cross-border e-commerce, making businesses love and hate the Brazilian market.

Brazil is currently the ninth largest e-commerce retail market in the world, with vast market and huge profits. Cross border sellers who want to go to emerging markets must not miss this country.
