Chinese short video app Kuaishou has upgraded its e-commerce services, giving preference to domestically produced goods and partnering with Chinese e-commerce giants in the hope of commercializing its 150 million daily active users.

The company’s new plan gives priority to the development of “Made in China” goods, agricultural e-commerce, public welfare, entertainment, craftsmen, and skill training.
