The eCommerce market in Japan has developed mainly from major marketplaces capable of attracting customers. However, an increasing number of corporations are strengthening their eCommerce business to enforce enhanced customer experience, branding and marketplace fees. However, the rapid commercialization of eCommerce businesses has proven to be complex due to lacking in-house resources and absent knowledge, combined with the burden of managing multiple vendors at multiple stages of the launch.
