Current Trends in Retail and Culture, and How new Technology can help Merchants Grow Business

Livestreaming has become a cultural staple among youth and internet users of all kinds. If you’re an Instagram or TikTok user, you will have seen videos and livestreams used to push products to potential customers. These types of sales techniques are wildly successful. Many companies rely exclusively on their sales through video and livestreamed content.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, more people are shopping from home than ever. This has caused a massive explosion in online retail. E-commerce is seeing a large spike in demand as users and developers drive the marketplace to expand and innovate. As more people shop online, the opportunities for e-commerce have grown quite a bit. Huawei is addressing the new demand with its new Live E-commerce solutions.


In the past, livestreamed sales events needed multiple people, large spaces, lots of equipment, and could be quite expensive at times. Huawei aims to make the process easier and more affordable with their Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) kits. These kits allow anyone to stream and sell products directly from their phone. As long as you have a smartphone, the rest of the process can be done virtually. This opens up the new live e-commerce industry to everyone.

Even those who do have access to all of the equipment needed for a successful online retail stream, the current world of social distancing prevents a large group of people from working closely together. If this is the case for you, Huawei’s new Live E-commerce kits could be the perfect solution.

The new e-commerce solution is designed to help merchants boost their traffic while lowering costs. Live streaming brings new opportunities driven by e-commerce transformation. Online retailers will be able to easily implement this solution, which is based on HMS to enhance live commerce capabilities.
