(Nasdaq:BZUN) (“Baozun” or the “”Company”), the leading brand e-commerce solutions provider in China, today announced that it has further strengthened its portfolio of omni-channel e-commerce solutions it offers brand partners with the new generation of official brand WeChat store platform.
The new platform is part of the Company’s strategy to further expand the range of mobile-based e-commerce solutions it offers brand partners and allow them to quickly expand their presence on WeChat without the heavy costs associated with creating a new online store.

Baozun has constructed a core system that directly integrates the brands’ WeChat public account with their back-end systems and third party vendors’ systems across all sales channels. Like the stores Baozun operates for its brand partners in other channels, these new WeChat stores offer customers the same safety, convenience, and reliability.“Our official WeChat stores will make an attractive value-added service for our brand partners by offering them a channel to reach out to WeChat’s massive user base,” commented Mr. Vincent Qiu, Chief Executive Officer of Baozun. “With more and more users using their mobile devices to shop and interact with brands, we built a platform that will allow brands to not only sell their products, but to also promote their brand and communicate with their customers more efficiently. A number of our brand partners have already launched their WeChat stores on this platform with many others already having expressed a strong interest in expanding their presence on WeChat. We will continue to innovate and expand the range of services we offer brands to increase e-commerce sales across different channels.”Safe Harbor StatementsThis news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
