Huijian He, the Vice President of Dada Group, said that, "G-super's advantages in products and customers are valuable for JDDJ to diversify and optimize the product supply and attract mid-to-high-end users. Since the establishment of partnership, JDDJ have supported G-super with capabilities and operations experience of online traffic, marketing, order fulfilment, product management, and member operations."

At the third quarter of 2020, G-super's sales on JDDJ nearly increased by 2 times compared with the same period last year, and the number of users placing orders and new users also nearly doubled year-on-year.
"The 'Super Merchant Day' was a key milestone for our three-years cooperation. It also formed methodologies for two companies' deepening future cooperation," said Ms. Mu. "The next three years will be crucial for G-super's digitalization strategy, and JDDJ has become our important partner in this regard. We will strength our partnership with JDDJ in respect of users, products, order fulfilment, and marketing, to boost online sales and achieve refined operations."
