By operating on the two platforms, Costco will be able to offer nearly 800 references to customers in China, of which around 300 are part of the new Tmall store. The company is adding furniture, consumer electronics, and wine to its product line, expanding the clothing, food, health and beauty products, and more, available through Tmall Global.

- Ranked 13rd in China in term of selling capacity
