Outlook into the Global Cross-Border B2C E-Commerce Market to 2023 - Leading Players Include Amazon, AliExpress, eBay and Wish - ResearchAndMarkets.com

WIS AMZN +1 more WIS AMZN EBAY

With more than one in two global online shoppers making purchases on foreign websites, cross-border B2C E-Commerce continues to gain traction. As the report reveals, cross-border online shopper penetration is the highest in countries such as Australia, China, Canada, and Mexico. Amazon, AliExpress, eBay and Wish emerged as the cross-border market leaders, occupying top positions in international E-Commerce website rankings across countries and regions. The main drivers of the online shopping trend from the consumer's perspective are lower prices and better product availability, according to surveys cited by the analyst. Furthermore, as the logistics capabilities of E-Commerce companies and delivery providers improve, consumers will be able to receive their international online purchases faster, helping to mitigate some of the top barriers to cross-border shopping in 2019: long and costly delivery.

How Wish built a retail empire for shoppers to buy on the cheap under the nose of Amazon

WIS AMZN

Two years later, Szulczewski and a friend, Danny Zhang, launched an app that allows users to search for their favourite products online and add them to a wish list. “Coming from Google, we knew how to look at consumer data and it was undisputable that this was a big opportunity not just in North America, but potentially an even bigger opportunity in Europe and elsewhere,” Szulczewski said. Since those early days, Wish has grown into an online shopping mecca where 80 million consumers in the United States, Canada, Europe and elsewhere shop for affordable goods. The San Francisco-based company has become a global powerhouse and a rival to Amazon.com Inc. by building an e-commerce platform for consumers who prioritize price over fast shipping and pretty packaging. Simply put, Wish has been able to build a multi-billion-dollar empire in less than a decade by using transactional and behavioural insights about its users to provide an online entry point for shoppers with lean buying power, a strategy that continues to elude many other retailers trying to fend off Amazon’s market incursion.

Wellington.scoop.co.nz » Migrant Nurses’ Wish List

WIS

Migrant Nurses’ Wish List for the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife As we enter 2020, the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, I would like to highlight my wish list as migrant nurses/internationally qualified nurses (IQN) continue to contribute services to the New Zealand healthcare system. Approximately 3 out of 10 (28.7% of 57,833) New Zealand nurses qualified overseas. Locally, I wish this would translate to safer nurse-patient ratios in all work settings, better pay and pay equity, equal professional development opportunities for IQNs, inclusion, and better communication and respect within and between diverse healthcare teams. Locally, I wish the government would invest more in nursing education and provide scholarships that IQNs could also access, in nurse-led and midwife-led services and appreciate that nurses and midwives, too, are central in primary health care.

Best Stocks for 2020: Make a Wish Upon Disney Stock’s Star

WIS DIS

It’s a presidential election year, the impeachment process will likely still be going and Wall Street is going to be wondering just how many new all-time highs the S&P 500 can make. However, while there may be shorter-term spikes in volatility and uncertainty in 2020, the longer-term social and economic trends that have been building and developing for years are going to continue to play out. Application software providers, like Adobe (NASDAQ:) and Salesforce (NYSE:) with monthly/annual subscriptions. And of course, media giants, like Disney (NYSE:). It used to be much more reliant on big, one-time product launches and movie releases. But it has been slowly building into a subscription model powerhouse during the past few years. So how does DIS leverage the subscription model? Live sports still attract a lot of eyeballs in this age of on-demand television, which enables DIS to still charge a premium from any provider that wants to include the network in its packages. However, DIS isn’t looking to simply sit back and collect regular revenue from other cable, satellite and streaming media providers.

Amazon, Wish, eBay called out for selling 'potentially deadly' items

WIS AMZN +1 more WIS AMZN EBAY

The investigation, which was conducted by UK non-profit Electrical Safety First, found that of the 15 items that were tested, 14 failed UK safety tests. In the most extreme example, a hairdryer purchased on Wish's site set alight after Electrical Safety First tested what would happen if it restricted the airflow on the machine. Amazon has been strongly criticized for this in the past, especially as its marketplace - its network of third-party sellers which sell and distribute items through the Amazon network - continues to grow at a rapid rate. In a statement emailed to Business Insider, a spokesperson for eBay said that it "proactively" enforces its product safety policy and uses algorithms to stop unsafe products from being listed.
