China News Service, Sanya, September 19 (Reporter Wang Xiaobin) Driven by the outlying island’s duty-free shopping boom, well-known scenic spots in the Greater Sanya tourist area have vacated "golden" shops and "transformed" into cross-border e-commerce experience stores. Soup "consumption return" dividends.

  The new crown pneumonia epidemic still affects cross-border travel. Attracted by the tax-free shopping policy on outlying islands, Chinese people who used to go abroad to "sweep" turned their attention to Hainan.

Aiming at the tourist consumers who come to Hainan, cross-border e-commerce companies have opened experience stores directly into major scenic spots.

  Since October last year, cross-border e-commerce experience stores have opened in Sanya Tianya Haijiao Scenic Area, Nanshan Scenic Area, Wuzhizhou Island Scenic Area, Yanoda Scenic Area in Baoting, and Boundary Island Scenic Area in Lingshui.

  Tianya Haijiao Cross-border E-commerce Experience City is the largest cross-border e-commerce experience city in Sanya. It is jointly created by Sanya Tourism and Culture Investment Group and the cross-border e-commerce enterprise "Qubai Global", with an operating area of ​​more than 5,000 square meters and display of beauty makeup , Luggage, watches, alcohol, maternal and child products, sunscreen products and other products.

  In the scenic area of ​​Jiezhou Island in Lingshui, the tourist rest area facing the Shangxiadao Pier has become a cross-border commodity experience store.

"The experience store has been in business for 3 months, and the response has been good." Wang Anna, the head of the cross-border e-commerce project in the scenic spot, said that the upgraded store will provide visitors with a resting place while displaying high-quality and high-quality duty-free goods. Some time ago, we were seriously affected by the epidemic. Recently, as the tourism market has recovered, we have made some adjustments and planned to introduce more high-end, big-brand products."

  The reporter learned that in addition to the traditional tax market, Hainan’s imported goods consumer market has two major sectors: duty-free shopping on outlying islands has entered an era of multi-store and multi-subject competition, and cross-border e-commerce players are continuing to deploy.

In the future, a tax exemption policy for daily consumer goods will be implemented for residents on the island.

  Hainan’s outlying islands are exempt from import duties, value-added tax and consumption tax, but there are restrictions on category and number of items.

Cross-border e-commerce has a rich variety of duty-free products, tariff-free, discounts on import value-added tax and consumption tax, online shopping platform orders to buy, and express delivery.

  "Cross-border e-commerce and outlying island tax exemption are currently complementary." Zuo Guanghui was responsible for the offline business of "Qubai Global". He believes that the two main customer groups are different. "The outlying island tax exemption consumers are mostly young. For individual customers, many products attract them to pay generously by means of suits, a few pieces, etc.; cross-border e-commerce is mainly for group customers, so explosive items with moderate prices are very popular."

  "Cross-border e-commerce has become a new bright spot in the development of Hainan’s foreign trade." At the press conference of the "White Paper on Hainan Free Trade Port Construction (2021)" held earlier, Peng Wei, deputy director of the Hainan Provincial Department of Commerce, introduced that cross-border e-commerce last year Commercial imports amounted to 1.255 million orders, with a total value of over 500 million yuan (RMB, the same below), an increase of more than 5 times year-on-year. From January to May this year, cross-border e-commerce retail imports were 1.403 million orders with a total value of 573 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 4.6 times and 3.5 times respectively.
