An attempt has been made by Walmart to target Chinese shopping clients.

China strategies for Walmart underwent a shift following the sale of its “own online platform Yihaodian”, which took place in the earlier part of this year, while in exchange they acquired a stake in JD.com Inc., “local e-commerce giant”.
