Alibaba Lets Travelers Make Duty-Free Purchases Online

(Beijing) – Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. has launched an online service to help Chinese travelers choose and buy duty-free products when they travel abroad.

Alibaba's Tmall.hk, an e-commerce website dedicated to foreign wares, is cooperating with South Korea's Shilla Duty-free Shop and Thailand's King Power Duty-free Shop to start the service on July 28.

Shoppers must provide passport and ticket information before they can choose the products they want to buy. They pick up their purchases at shops in airports by showing clerks payment text messages.
