Company statistics show that people between the ages of 25 to 35, who are major customers of Tmall and Taobao, contributed to 59 percent of total turnover.

The most favored two categories of products by consumers were clothing, and 3C digital products (computers, communication and consumer electronics), accounting for 30.3 percent and 18.6 percent of the total turnover respectively.

Alibaba split Taobao into three separate companies in 2011. They are Taobao, a C2C online shopping destination, Tmall, a B2C online marketplace for brand-name goods and eTao, a shopping search engine.

Transaction volume on Taobao and Tmall totaled about 630 billion yuan in 2011.
