Some sellers do not take cross-border e-commerce as their main business, so they prefer their personal identities; it is not low, and the policies of each place are different. In some places, no matter whether you hire employees or not, you will be forced to pay the social security of several employees every year. I can understand everyone's troubles in choosing a company identity. After all, this problem also caused me a lot of trouble in the early days, and it cost me a lot of money. Therefore, there are also some personal understandings, especially small and medium sellers, should avoid some detours and save some costs.
This is how I understand it, if you regard cross-border e-commerce as a long-term business. Registering a company is a must. At present, most platforms require a company identity to mobile number list settle in, and even shopify's paypal payment access has begun to force a company identity to register a paypal merchant account. The space for operating getting smaller and smaller. In terms of company selection, domestic companies, hong kong companies, and american companies are currently the identity choices of most cross-border sellers.
Naturally, there is no need to say more about the identity of domestic companies, 90%+ are. Hong kong and us companies are much less. However, the large number of people who choose does not mean that domestic companies are the best choice for operating cross-border e-commerce. Domestic company first choice is cost issue. Although the administrative fees for company registration have been canceled in most areas of the country, that is to say, in principle, the administrative department for industry and commerce does not charge company registration fees, and even many banks provide agency services, providing one-stop services from company registration to opening of corporate accounts.
