Submission + - China's Alibaba to Outsell Amazon, eBay Combined (reuters.com)

hackingbear writes: China's largest e-commerce firm, Alibaba Group, expects to sell merchandise this year worth more than that sold by Amazon Inc and eBay combined. The company is aiming for 3 trillion yuan ($473 billion) in annual transaction value from its Taobao e-commerce units in the next 5 to 7 years, rising from the 1 trillion yuan of sales expected for 2012. "From their annual reports we did a rough calculation and we were similar last year but we are growing faster than them this year, so this year we are probably larger than them," Zeng Ming, Chief Strategy Officer of Alibaba, said of Amazon and eBay.
