    Yahoo Hong Kong data show that more than 70 percent of the population in Hong Kong and Taiwan use mobile devices for online shopping.

An e-commerce leader in Hong Kong, Yahoo Hong Kong proactively meets consumer demand and new expectations for online shopping services, and bravely revolutionizes traditional consumption models to perfect the integration of offline and online shops, leading the market and consumers to a new era of online consumption"

    Who cares if either one is more popular than the other - do they come in English? No? Then neither one matters to me

    There are tons of items on eBay, it's all in English and they have a great customer protection program. Sames goes for Amazon, and I don't have to worry about regional shipping restrictions thanks to a shipping forwarder and a US-based Paypal account.

    No discussing which MTR station to meet at, no dealing with some shitty Mainland shipping courier and no need to contact the seller 99% of the time. Why y'all even bother with Taobao is beyond me.

    I mis-believe you are mis-reading this. It states 53% of the population of Hong Kong use e-commerce. It is pretty clear - the "which" refers to the market size, not Yahoo's size.

    Reads like an advertorial not a real article.
