Alibaba’s 2022 11.11 Global Shopping Festival Facilitates Quality Growth for Brands and Merchants

HANGZHOU, China--()--Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA; HKEX: 9988) today successfully concluded its 14th annual 11.11 Global Shopping Festival (“11.11”) and delivered results in line with last year’s GMV performance despite macro challenges and Covid-related impact.

This year’s 11.11 featured over 290,000 brands from over 90 countries and regions across 7,000 product categories. In the first four hours of the second check-out window, which started at 8pm on October 31, more than 130 brands surpassed RMB100 million in member-generated GMV. More than 5,600 brands saw their member-generated GMV more than double compared with the first four hours of last year’s second check-out window.

“We thank all our participating merchants and partners of our ecosystem for working with us to deliver another 11.11 Global Shopping Festival that demonstrates a steady, promising growth trajectory. Together, we have witnessed the resilience and vibrancy of China’s consumption sector,” said Chui Xue, President of Industry Development and Operation Center of Taobao and Tmall, Alibaba Group. “Our priority for this 11.11 was to enhance certainty for our merchants’ operation. We are pleased to have helped our participating brands and merchants accumulate new loyal customers during the festival which will serve as a strong foundation for their sustainable operation. We are also encouraged to see an emergence of new consumption trends with huge untapped potential. We will continue to innovate and strengthen our capabilities to provide our merchants with reliable opportunities for long-term growth and make concerted efforts to meet consumers’ evolving needs.”

In its second year running wholly on the cloud, this year's 11.11 Global Shopping Festival has seen improved computing efficiency thanks to high-performance computing and innovative technology deployment. Computing cost per resource unit was reduced by 8% compared to last year from April 1 to November 11.
