JoyBuy.com, like Amazon.com and Walmart, is a large-scale retailer. JoyBuy.com operates solely as an ecommerce business with no brick-and-mortar stores. JoyBuy.com is a Chinese company based in Beijing.
JoyBuy.com is part of JD.com, which was founded in July 1998 by Liu Qiangdong, who simplifies things for westerners by using the name Richard Liu for business. Originally, the company was a brick-and-mortar store called Jingdong that sold electro -optical products from its location in Zhongguancun High-tech Industrial Park in Beijing. By 2003, Liu had created a small chain with 12 stores which had expanded to selling computers, mobile phones, and other electronics.
However, during the outbreak of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) in southern China from November 2002 to July 2003, the staff and clients of Jingdong were forced to remain at home. Liu reconsidered the direction of his business. He founded JD.com and opened his first online retail site, Jingdong Mall, in 2004, and, in 2005, he closed all of his brick-and-mortar stores.
In 2007, Liu changed the domain name of the company website to 360buy.com. In 2013, the 365buy.com website rebranded, adopting the company name JD.com as the new URL. At the same time, the company adopted a new logo, a mascot dog named Joy which symbolizes JoyBuy.com's mission to make life carefree and joyful.
The company seeks to become the most trustworthy company in the world by pursuing its core values of integrity, honesty, accountability, gratitude, service, commitment, teamwork, passion, innovation, continuing to learn, becoming better, and by putting the customer first. JD.com an eBay-like site which enabled individuals and businesses to sell and distribute their own merchandise, but Liu refused to tolerate the counterfeit merchandise that appeared and closed it.

In June 2016, Walmart sold its Chinese ecommerce business to JD.com in exchange for a stake in the company. In July 2017, Walmart and JD.com joined forces to launch their first annual JD-Walmart shopping festival, held on August 8, 2017.
In this YouTube video entitled JD.com CEO On Donald Trump’s Impact On Business In China , Liu (Richard) Qiangdong talks about his partnerships with US manufacturers and Alibaba.
JD.com began as a technology-focused company, and it continues that focus through maintaining and improving an online platform that supports rapid growth while providing the latest in cutting-edge services and technology to its suppliers and customers. For example, JD.com leads the world in the use of high tech and artificial intelligence to create a delivery system that employs drones and robots. Surpassing Amazon, JD.com already owns the largest drone delivery system, capability, and infrastructure in the world. It is currently building drone-delivery airports and testing robot delivery services.
In an exclusive interview with CNBC, company founder and CEO Liu (Richard) Qiangdong stated that drone delivery can reduce the cost of logistics to areas of rural China by 70 percent. The company hires a delivery person who lives in the village or local area. The drones fly orders to the backyard of the local delivery person, and he delivers the package to the purchaser. However, in order to maintain the level of service that draws customers in China, village delivery people must maintain a high level of customer satisfaction. Just two customer complaints can be grounds for firing.
While JoyBuy.com continues the company’s dedication to customer service and initial focus on electronics with a range of cell phones from a variety of manufacturers, electronic scales, fitness bracelets, and other computer and electronic gear, its offerings have expanded far afield. In June 2017, the company invested $39 million into forming a partnership with Farfetched, a retailer of luxury items. Consequently, JoyBuy.com now offers fur coats, including mink. In addition to men's and women's clothes, jewelry, and accessories, you will also find furniture and decorative items for your home, sports and camping equipment, appliances, personal health care products, and even automotive products. Some of the recent additions to the JoyBuy.com product line include novels and nonfiction books by Chinese authors.
