Miravia marketplace has launched in Spain – a new offer from Alibaba, which aims to connect the country’s 30 million online buyers with brands and content creators.
With fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle products, Miravia aims to connect consumers in different ways, majoring on, for example, exclusive content created by influencers and virtual makeup try-on tools. This appears to be drawing on the lessons learned in China and bringing some of the most effective marketing techniques to the West, but in a slightly muted form compared to Chinese tastes to appeal to Spanish buyers.
We want to give space to local and global sellers, we support all big and small brands, with competitive offers and a personalized and entertaining shopping experience.– Yann Fotaine, General Director, Miravia
For consumers, Miravia offers free shipping on purchases over €10, 30 days free returns and promises fast secure payments – pretty much what you would expect from most major ecommerce sites in 2023. To encourage buying, there will be coupons to popular brands exclusive to Miravia, daily flash deals and weekly campaigns and promos on the best loved brands.
