Daigou traders provide Australian brands with cost effective marketing and sales

But without an effective industry body this channel remains fragmented and largely ineffective.

The main objectives of ACDA are to:

  • Provide informational programs and opportunities for the Australian business community to network with Chinese traders (daigou) conducting cross border trade;
  • Host events with Australian daigou and Australian businesses;
  • Represent members’ views to Australian and Chinese policy makers and act as a conduit between governments and the Australian daigou community;
  • Develop and support a code of conduct for daigou cross border trading; and
  • Develop and maintain a high level of support for the membership through Association activities and relevant government-initiated programs.

Here’s how we got started…

Founded in 2017, ACDA actively promotes cooperation and understanding, between Australian businesses and the Chinese communities within Australia conducting daigou cross border trading.

ACDA plays an influential role as an advisor to many Australian companies on leveraging daigou trading as a means to establish brand recognition within China as well as facilitating relations with daigou to help initiate cross border selling. The ACDA established a daigou ‘code of conduct’ which fosters professional trading standards and sets out quality levels for both the daigou trader and their brand partners.

The ACDA provides regular business-focused activities for our members. We also sponsor a series of events each year which include a day of networking in Sydney to meet with key Daigou Traders, Australian Government Ministers and senior officials, and host an annual China trade mission with an outstanding Australian or international China expert.

The Australia China Daigou Association has close links with large retail groups in China, as well as with Chinese daigou shops/gift stores in Australia. Our mission at ACDA is to create a recognition within the Australian business community of the value daigou provide in both brand development and cross border sales and in turn assist the daigou trader to become a more effective, professional brand advocate to their buyers back in China.
