The GMV per product for those with an EU/UK certificate is 80 percent higher than for other products, reflecting a shift amongst buyers in favour of higher-quality, certified products and customer retention. According to NPSx by Bain & Company, great product quality is the most important factor driver of customer loyalty, ahead of value.[1]

At a product level, the UK has witnessed significant growth in categories including watches and jewellery, as brands stock up on consumer goods in the lead-up to key purchasing moments in the retail calendar. Interest from business buyers for Industry Machinery has increased by 15%, and the interest in Watches & Jewellery has also increased significantly.

In addition, helping UK brands tap into the market for festive items, more than 700,000 Christmas articles ? all with EU/UK-product certifications - are available on Alibaba.com. The hottest Christmas products are those that create a 'Holiday atmosphere' ? from decorative lamps, packaging bags and boxes; 'cosy Home Comforts' ? including Christmas trees and ornaments; and Christmas fashion.

Roland Palmer, General Manager of UK, Benelux and Nordics, Alibaba Group, said: "UK SMEs demand the highest quality products. It's one of the most important factors in a consumer's purchasing decision, and one of the primary reasons they remain loyal. As a result, we have seen strong growth for Alibaba.com's 'Certified Picks for Europe' over the last month ? reflecting an appetite from UK SMEs ? particularly those offering industrial machinery, watches and jewellery - to meet the product quality expectations of their customers. In the race to capture a share of wallet in retail's most important season, we believe product quality will be what sets brands apart and helps them achieve long-term, sustainable growth opportunities."
