eBay enters South Korea’s fresh food delivery market

eBay Korea has announced that it is partnering with Homeplus to offer same-day deliveries for online fresh food orders. In a notice posted on its website on Thursday (19 November), eBay said: “Korean shoppers, particularly single households and double-income families, are increasingly looking to buy small bundles of fresh produce online and have it delivered the same day.

“With this in mind, eBay Korea has partnered with Homeplus, one of the largest retail chains in Korea with more than 100 branches, to create a new offering called Homeplus Pavilion.”

The eBay notice said that the company is “offering fresh products such as vegetables, meat and dairy through Korea’s Gmarket and IAC platforms”.

eBay added: “The new arrangement will mean more than 30,000 items can be ordered from Gmarket-IAC and supplied to homes the same day via Homeplus’ logistics system and arsenal of cold storage trucks. The service currently encompasses 88 stores nationwide but will expand over time.”
