MUMBAI: Kuvera, a wholly owned WPP company specializing in e-commerce in China has forged a partnership with Paipai, China?s social commerce platform on mobile owned by JD.com. The deal names Kuvera as Paipai?s strategic partner in a new initiative of developing mobile social e-commerce in China for global brands.

Under the agreement, Kuvera acts as a total solution provider for WPP?s clients to conduct online retailing business on Paipai?s e-commerce platform, utilizing social networking and a variety of marketing tools; if circumstances permit, Paipai will recommend WPP agencies to Paipai?s merchants, as a preferred service provider of marketing and promotion services and as a strategic partner of Paipai.

Specifically, Kuvera becomes a qualified service provider on Paipai and will assist Paipai to recruit new brand merchants. Kuvera will provide a full spectrum of services to clients, including transaction services, storefront management, brand promotion and customer relationship management (CRM). In turn, Paipai will provide clients with necessary support and resources, including traffic, technical solutions and merchandising staff. 

The agreement also provides Kuvera access to Paipai?s advertising inventory, including its organic traffic and traffic from social media which Paipai connects with, such as WeChat and QQ.

?It is a milestone that we are going to provide a total solution package including advertising and online sales for global brand names under social e-commerce context. Through Paipai and Kuvera, we hope more global brand names can enjoy the benefit and excitement that social e-commerce brings to them and we hope JD and WPP will have further and tighter co-operation along the way,? said JD.com CEO Richard Liu. 

?China?s consumers are among the world?s most engaged in the e-commerce, social networking and mobile spaces. This agreement provides WPP and our clients the ability to leverage Paipai and JD.com?s platforms,? added WPP CEO Martin Sorrell. 

?Brands are seeking to reach Chinese consumers more effectively, particularly over social and mobile networks. With this agreement, our clients now have greater access to social commerce channels, including the highly popular WeChat ecosystem,? said WPP China CEO Bessie Lee.

In 2014 in Greater China, WPP companies (including associates) generated revenue of $1.5 billion with almost 15,000 people, with digital revenue around $450 million. WPP?s global digital revenue was $6.9 billion in 2014, representing 36 per cent of the Group?s total revenues of $19 billion. 

?We are excited to have WPP as a strategic partner of Paipai. With WPP's unparalleled branding and advertising expertise globally, we together will provide a total solution including brand and long tail ads and marketing strategy to our customers in the social commerce universe,? said Paipai president Kate Kui.
