Mobile internet retailing increased remarkably over the review period; in particular, it recorded 80% current value growth in 2013 and accounted for a 14% value share of internet retailing. The possession of smartphones in South Korea reached 70% in 2013. There are many types of social commerce internet retailing, such as Coupang, Ticket Monster and We Make Price, which have all led to a higher level of internet retailing through mobiles than through computers.

Competitive Landscape

eBay Korea Co maintained its leading position within internet retailing with a 22% value share in 2013. The company operates the two largest internet retailing brands, G Market (PP) and Auction (PP). G Market recorded a 13% value share and Auction took 9% in 2013, with respective value sales increases of 33% and 30%. They are classed as open markets in South Korea because anyone can sell their products if they pay a fee to the company; however, the fee reaches up to 12% depending on the product category, so private consumers rarely use open market internet retailing to sell only a few items. It is good resource for small-sized manufacturers that do not have particular distribution channels.
