Guangzhou will build five new stores to display imported, consumer tax-free products for online shopping.

The local department store chain, MOPARK, is opening online shopping display stores in its five branch outlets after launching an earlier one recently in Gangding, Tianhe District. Other stores opened in Huangpu District and Beijing Lu on July 6, and the size of the Gangding store was doubled to 800 sq. m. 

Over 1,600 different kinds of products are available at the stores. They are directly imported products that customers must pay for online, for both the product price and the import tax.  Most items are in the categories of baby supplies, food, healthcare, cosmetics and personal care.

Another local department store, Grandbuy, runs three outlets that sell consumer tax-free products, so nine such stores will be open in the city very soon.

When buying consumer tax-free products, customers must make orders and pay online after seeing the products in the stores. The stores import the merchandise from foreign vendors, who ship them to Guangzhou. After being taxed at customs, the store delivers the products to the customers’ address. Unlike the products in an ordinary store, the products in the display store don't include consumer tax. Customers need to pay import tax instead. The import tax is usually 10–20 percent of the product price. Shopping this way is cheaper and offers accessibility to a wider variety of products.

The  consumer tax-free products are being offered in response to growing demand from customers, according to MOPARK. Store officials are optimistic about the potential for this market. They are trying to improve logistics to help customers receive their orders quicker.
