JD.com Launches Luxury e-Commerce Platform "Toplife"
New platform gives brands a luxury-only direct channel to Chinese consumers
BEIJING, Oct. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JD.com, (NASDAQ:JD), China's largest retailer, today announced the launch of Toplife, a new, exclusive full-price online shopping platform that gives high-end global brands a comprehensive way to reach affluent Chinese customers directly through flagship stores that they can customize.
The launch of Toplife recognizes that many high-end brands and consumers prefer a dedicated, independent sales platform for luxury goods, to ensure a premium, differentiated experience consistent with a luxury brand's own offline stores. The platform allows brands to sell directly to consumers through an end-to-end luxury e-commerce ecosystem that seamlessly incorporates online stores, premium customer service and delivery, marketing and branding expertise, and specialized warehousing and inventory. Brands will be able to control every aspect of their flagship store's appearance, while leveraging a wide range of customer service resources from JD.com.
Toplife will feature a wide range of luxury and high-end stores from category-leading global brands covering fashion, jewelry, watches, health and beauty, home furnishings, cosmetics, and electronics. Brands will get value-added services from JD, including premium 24-hour a day customer support and fulfillment, and precision brand-building and marketing resources. Marquee brands that have already joined Toplife include La Perla, Emporio Armani, Rimowa (LVMH), B&O Play and Trussardi. Additional brands will be available in the coming weeks, some of which will launch their first ever online stores in China.
"Our deep understanding of high-end consumers has enabled us to launch a luxury e-commerce ecosystem that provides a truly premium shopping experience, and helps partners tell their brand story to local consumers," said Richard Liu, Chairman and CEO of JD.com. "Working with Toplife, luxury brands worldwide are now able to directly provide customers throughout China with a true luxury shopping experience previously only associated with high-end offline stores. Toplife aims to mirror the offline luxury shopping experience in a premium e-commerce experience."
Located in JD's advanced "Asia No. 1" fulfillment center, the Toplife facilities feature world-class warehouse technologies such as dust-free sealed spaces, strict temperature and humidity controls, robotics, and advanced security systems to ensure consumers receive their products in perfect condition.
As part of the overall luxury shopping experience, Toplife provides rapid and secure product delivery through JD's leading self-operated nationwide logistics network. Many Toplife customers will also enjoy JD Luxury Express, the white-glove delivery service that is currently available in major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Chengdu.
Toplife also offers unrivaled customer support, including a new team of in-house fashion consultants specially trained to advise customers of luxury products on their purchases.

Egyptian Steel recognised in the World Finance 100 guide for 201717.1.2018 15:29 | Pressmeddelande
LONDON, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Egyptian Steel currently stands as one of the most powerful companies in Egypt. Its prosperity is largely down to the work of founder and CEO, Ahmed Abou Hashima, whose optimistic and bold approach has seen the company go from strength to strength - even in tough conditions. In spite of Egypt's 2011 revolution, which pushed the country through much turmoil, Egyptian Steel was able to take off, having been founded just the year before. Abou Hashima believes that investors shouldn't be put off in times of political uncertainty and economic upheaval. If they are brave, the rewards can be great. And if his organisation's performance is anything to go by, it seems these are wise words; Egyptian Steel's four steel plants now produce 2.3 million tonnes of steel annually. For its outstanding work, Egyptian Steel has been recognised by World Finance in the magazine's World Finance 100 guide, which identifies the world's strongest organisations. Here, co
Investing in Berlin's thriving real estate market17.1.2018 15:05 | Pressmeddelande
LONDON , Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Germany's capital Berlin may be well known as a vibrant tourist destination - the city welcomed 12.7 million visitors last year - but it also offers fantastic investment opportunities. Currently, the real estate market is flourishing, but it is also constantly changing. As such, investors will find that a little market knowledge goes a long way. In 2018, the trend towards renting out furnished apartments looks set to continue, with renovated properties achieving a high sell-on value. Locations will also remain a key factor in determining property prices. In Berlin, real estate buyers will find that high-demand areas like Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain offer solid opportunities for return on investment (ROI). Alongside Berlin, other cities in former-East Germany are proving increasingly enticing to real estate developers. Leipzig, for example, has a thriving student population and good job prospects as a result of investment from Por
