7-Eleven, MyDay to partner on overseas shopping service

Taiwan's largest convenience store chain, 7-Eleven, said Tuesday it will work with local shopping website MyDay to have online purchases from overseas delivered to its 5,000-plus outlets around Taiwan.

The convenience store said it will introduce the delivery service on Nov. 25, allowing shoppers on the MyDay website to have their purchases delivered from Japan, the United States and South Korea in five days at the earliest.

Myday has over a decade of experience in cross-border shopping service and also partners with other sites such as Amazon in the U.S., Rakuten in Japan, and Gmarket in South Korea, 7-Eleven said.

7-Eleven is the second convenience store chain in Taiwan to offer such a service, following FamilyMart, which established a similar partnership with the Japanese shopping site Tenso in September. Registered members of Tenso can have their purchases delivered to FamilyMart stores in Taiwan in about six days.

Over 43 percent of online shoppers in Taiwan buy products on overseas sites six times per year on average, according to a 2013 survey by the Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute under the Institute for Information Industry.
