E-Commerce Platform Kwaishop to Support “Kwai Brands” With Boosted Web Traffic

Kwaishop, the e-commerce arm of Chinese TikTok-like short video sharing app Kuaishou, on Monday launched the “Kwai Brand Billion Traffic Plan,” aiming to support 500 Kwai Brands with web traffic of more than 23 billion visits to help them grow.

Kwaishop has launched this plan to reduce the impact of the pandemic on e-commerce businesses with operations on the platform, encouraging them to operate stably and seize growth opportunities in emerging fields.

The “Kwai Brand” term refers to small and medium-sized brands that developed within Kuaishou’s unique social business ecosystem and are based on quality and emotional connections with users. Kuaishou is known in overseas markets as Kwai.

In addition, Kwaishop offered some specific index indicators related to Kwai Brands, showing whether the brands were established within the past five years, or whether more than 30% of the brands’ GMV is derived from livestreaming channels.
