The 11.11 Global Shopping Festival was introduced with the aim of catering to the rising popularity of online shopping.

If you’re excited, wait until I revealed the Tmall’s unbeatable promotions offered such as:

No one would have thought an event which started off as ‘Singles Day’ by Alibaba in 2009, will cultivate such a massive hit. Now, the 11.11 Global Shopping Festival is regarded as the ‘Festival of all Festivals’ – the world’s biggest shopping sales event.
There’s a new highlight in this year Festival as Alibaba aims to transform traditional retail through technology. For example, in China, consumers can visit pop-up cosmetics stores to experience an augmented reality (AR) lipstick trial. Selected partnering stores will feature facial recognition payment and scan-and-deliver Online to Offline (020) shopping. Got to say I’m totally WOW-ed by it!
Oooh boy, does Taoboa think of everything. To make it extra convenient, they’ve also launched Mobile Taoboa app. To participate this year’s 11.11 Global Shopping Festival, just follow the below simple steps:
- Download the Mobile Taobao on Android Playstore or iOS Appstore
- Register on Mobile Taobao
- Input your mobile number or email address
