BEIJING — In a country obsessed with online shopping, China’s fashion retailers are having a hard time keeping up.
Online portals like 360buy and Taobao — China’s answer to eBay — are seeing record sales, with the former’s sales of $9.7 billion last year making it the country’s largest online retailer by volume. An estimated 564 million of China’s 1.35 billion people used the Internet last year, encouraged by a growing demand for smartphones and tablets; 242 million of them shopped online.
