Loqate, a GBG solution, is making it easier than ever before for businesses based outside China to sell and deliver goods and services to the hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers that engage in cross-border e-commerce annually. With the launch of the new China Premium Data Set - the most comprehensive premise-level address data for mainland China on the market – Loqate can help businesses quickly verify, onboard, and deliver to Chinese consumers.
China is home to 1.4 billion people, 140 million of which shop outside of the country for goods and services . But for companies operating outside the country, it can often be difficult to effectively sell and ship goods cross-border due to poor address-level data on consumers. Poor data makes it difficult to verify a customer, to identify and deliver to their address and causes compliance issues with Chinese regulations.
Yes, within our Address Verify solution, our global batch and real-time address verification product but only to a V3 Street/Thoroughfare level. The China Premium Data Set significantly enhances our address verification capability in this market and enables verification to a V4 Premise level. Additionally, the China Premium Data Set is available for both our global Address Capture and Address Verify solutions
Mapping data in China must respect local laws and regulations. Only a few certified companies are legally permitted to create map data (including premise level address data files) and serve that data to third parties. The China Premium Data Set reference data cannot leave mainland China in either its raw or compiled format. This means:
The reference data is held in Pinyin (Latin version) and Simplified Chinese. Therefore, the search can begin with either variant and be exported in either variant. The transliteration capabilities in Verify remain.
Any GBG product or service that utilizes Loqate products, services, or data will be able to make use of the higher grade China Premium Data Set.
