Club Factory recruits Indian sellers to import goods for ‘Project Ginger’
Chinese e-commerce retailer Club Factory is recruiting Indian e-commerce sellers to import essential goods such as masks and sanitisers from China to India, as part of its new initiative ‘Project Ginger’.
Club Factory has asked Indian businesses affected by the ongoing 21-day counter-coronavirus lockdown to import essential products from China to retail in India, ET Bureau reported. As part of Project Ginger, Club Factory will manage the purchase, customs clearance, warehousing, and shipment to Indian sellers and the sellers will be able to sell items such as face masks, personal protective clothing, and hygiene products in India.
“Club Factory is committed to rendering all possible assistance to the Indian government in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, including the supply of protective equipment,” a spokesperson for the business told the Economic Times.
All product procurement will be carried out, “in compliance with applicable laws,” said the spokesperson.
Club Factory has previously faced legal action in India and was investigated in December, 2019, for allegedly selling fake Titan watch and Ray-Ban glasses advertised as genuine on its platform. The business has also been accused of wrongfully marking commercial shipments to India as gifts to avoid customs clearance, which led to hundreds of packages being seized in Mumbai.
As of December 2019, Club Factory has 20,000 registered sellers in India. The business also shared in December last year that it planned to onboard 10,000 more sellers and continue the momentum into 2020. Club Factory specialises in fast fashion and also retails accessories and lifestyle goods.
