There are listed over 100 different Chinese stores on our overview page.

You find all kind of niches and all stores have their unique selling points.

This week I checked which mother company runs these stores. And then you see there are just a few companies…

AliBaba Group

Well know is the Alibaba group. This company is listed at the NY stock exchange and has many online stores.

AliExpress (English consumer), AliBaba (English B2B), Taobao (for the Chinese)

And then there are many more companies. Online stores, telecom companies, trip advisors, and of course AliPay.

AliPay is the largest online payment system in China. It handles the payments at AliExpress and Alibaba too.

The following Alibaba companies are all written in Chinese:

TMall,, Alimama, Aliyun, Yunos (Chinese phones), AliTelecom,, AliTrip,, Laiwang, Dingtalk, AliPay.



Also very evendently are Lightinthebox and Miniinthebox.





Lightinthebox focuses on clothing and lifestyle. Miniinthebox is more for the gadgets.

Yigou International Group

There is one company I cannot find on the Internet. But this company seems to have many online Chinese stores. This is the Yigou International group.

This company runs a lot of online fashion stores and electronics. For example:,,,,, TrendsGal and for clothing and DealsMachine and Everbuying for phones and gadgets.

When I was doing my research some people stated that the following companies are also part of this corporation: Rosewe, ChoiesModlily, JollyChic, SheInside, Twinkledeals.

This is something I cannot confirm. I have been in contact with most of these stores. I have asked one of my contacts to give me a full list. And these stores are not part of the club.


Tidebuy International

Some sites I haven’t mentioned much are the online sites from Tidebuy.

Tidebuy International focuses on clothing. is specially for dresses.

And this company has two niche sites too. Worth to give them a try!

BeddingInn for sheets and bedroom decorations.

And Wigsbuy… If you have a party or want a real hair wig… Hit it!

Final thought

When you search the company info, you will find many more sister and brother sites. Most sites are run by completely different people. They have different niches or different unique selling points.

You cannot expect one company to solve the problems from another company. And it is no guarantee that every site from one company has the same prices.

Wishing you safe purchases!
