One of the main questions that concerns sellers regarding Coupang Marketplace (coupang.com), is what are the best-selling products on this platform. A few days ago, Coupang released the list of best-selling products for April 2022, which may answer the ultimate question – What is selling the best in the Korean e-commerce Market?

Coupang is one of the three largest marketplaces in South Korea and is considered the most popular by Korean customers, with about 15 million returning customers. In 2020, South Korea ranked as the 4th largest (US $144.7 billion) e-commerce market in the world and according to our research - the First in the world Per Capita (US$ 2.85B).

The fact that Amazon is not directly active in the Korean market makes it difficult for non-Korean sellers to sell directly to customers in Korea. Coupang recognized this opportunity and began allowing foreign sellers to open a store and sell directly to Korean customers. Such sellers are called Global Sellers by Coupang.

The main differences between Global Sellers versus Local Sellers are the fact that the product is shipped from the seller's country of origin (outside Korea) and that the payment for selling the product is transferred directly to the seller's bank account in his/her country in foreign currency such as USD or EURO. There are of course other differences, but Global Sellers can outsource e-Commerce Support, Fulfillment and Logistics in Korea, in a way that will allow them to sell almost like a local seller. In some cases such foreign sellers can use Korean Import of Record services to export and store the products locally in Korea.

Coupang's Marketplace has Global Sellers from around the world and the lists below show the Top 10 best-selling products of Global Sellers from USA, Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and other regions:
