DHgate, the first-to-market, transactional e-commerce platform for China goods, is revolutionizing cross-border trade. Focused on providing the best value and purchase efficiency on high quality goods for both enterprise and consumer customers across the globe, the company has been experiencing accelerated growth.
DHgate was founded in 2004 by Diane Wang, a highly recognized business woman in China who previously co-founded and served as CEO of e-commerce site Joyo.com (Joyo sold to Amazon to become Amazon China). In 2013, DHgate focused on bringing in global executive talent with deep retail and e-commerce experience to grow the company in key markets. DHgate.com has seen accelerated growth rates in a number of business indicators, including year-to-year gross merchandising value, number of orders, registered buyers and sellers, and listings.
The company’s name was inspired by the ancient Chinese city of Dunhuang, which was a major stop on the ancient Silk Road trading route that originally connected the east to the west. Like Dunhuang, DHgate is a facilitator and gateway for global cross-border trade.
