SHANGHAI — In the wake of securing partnerships with Salvatore Ferragamo and eBay, Xiu.com is working to convince more international brands that collaborating with a domestic e-commerce player has more advantages than entering China’s booming online shopping sector via foreign e-tailers.
Xiu, founded in 2008, sells products ranging from luxury goods and cosmetics to fast-fashion and designer labels. Last year, the Shenzhen-based site inked a deal with Ferragamo to launch the Italian luxury brand’s official online store on its platform. Xiu also unveiled a major partnership with eBay for the launch of eBay Style, a fashion site for Chinese consumers that has more than 5,000 brands.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
