I hear Korea is one of the biggest online shopping markets in the world. I am looking to to enter the Korean market to start selling my products there. Does anyone have recommendations on how to do this? Thanks

This is an accepted solution.

I would recommend Coupang: Sign-up link

Coupang is the number 1 mobile shopping app in South Korea. Sellers can list their products on Coupang’s app/website as third-party marketplace sellers. Coupang’s large customer base and user friendly app allows businesses to expand their global reach easily and bring their great products to Korean customers. If you have any questions, please let me know. All the best!

That's right. Korea has the 4th largest e-commerce market in the world. There are not many Korean target stores with Shopify, but I think there will be a lot more in the future. The most important thing when targeting the Korean market is the payment method.

Naver Pay and Kakao Pay are the most common simple gel methods. If you don't have a Korean company, you can't set it up, but you can also use Shopify Payment or PayPal.

We have been creating shopping malls for Korean brands to enter overseas markets since 2017, and we are well aware of models sold overseas to Korea. Let me know if you have any other questions.

ps. Koreans are very accustomed to buying directly from overseas stores.
