JD.com Exceeds Growth and Revenue Expectations


Online retailers often perform better than brick-and-mortar competitors. Not every online retailer, however, delivers the necessary sales figure to generate profits. Massive competition exists for online shoppers. JD.com recently proved the company connects strongly with global consumers. The company gave a great Q1 earnings forecast. The numbers shattered previous estimates revealing a stable foreseeable future.


Another positive development comes out of the incredible forecast. The retailer and Tencent reached a contractual agreement to renew the former's platform. With a reliable platform, JD can continue to provide customers the expected quality service. Tencent finds the deal lucrative. JD agrees to pay Tencent $800 million over three years.

JD.com also gains the benefit of backing from Walmart and Alphabet. Walmart, of course, is a retail giant dominating sales in many parts of the globe. In the United States, Walmart remains a popular fixture among loyal customers. Alphabet is the parent company of Google. Backing from Alphabet increases the chances JD maintains a robust online presence.

JD's growth allows the e-commerce platform to tap into the lucrative Chinese market. The company's increase in stock price reveals consumers appear enthusiastic about ordering from the platform. At one point, the rise in share value topped 52%.

The volume of people who visit the e-commerce site is incredible. Roughly 1.1 billion people land on the site each month. If only a small fraction of the number makes a purchase, the company sees tremendous cash flow. So far, indicators suggest the e-commerce site is doing better than anyone anticipated.

Richard Liu, also known as Liu Quingdong, founded the company and serves as its Chief Executive Officer. His comments about the entity's success suggest he believes customer service plays a significant role in its success. Liu Quingdong stated that the "customer experience" delivered by the company supports continued patronage.

Ultimately, the success or failure of a retail business comes down to how happy customers are. If they feel the retailer provides reasonable prices, fast shipping, and quality products, the customers continue to return. At JD, there's an understanding not to shy away from these basics. Overall, the company's commitment to offering the perfect customer experience allowed it to grow.

Since JD.com exists as an online retailer, a reliance on cutting-edge technology exists. Richard Liu made sure to point out the company invests heavily in operations-supporting technology. Liu noted substantial investments in "key technology" support the platform's reliable services. Aged, outdated technology undermines customer experience. The e-commerce giant can't afford to harm its goodwill with customers by not integrating the best technology in its platform.

Liu also points out that personnel plays a vital role in the company's achievements. The company intends to continue hiring the top talent capable of driving further success. Thanks to billions of dollars in revenue and increased stock valuation, JD won't likely have difficulty paying the salaries demanded of the best of the best.

The JD company under the leadership of Richard Liu should continue to experience growth. In time, the company may set standards for global leadership in e-commerce.
