DataWeave has entered a partnership with Tokyo based Aucfan to chart its entry into the Japanese market. The two companies also signed a partnership to enable sellers on Aucfan’s platform,‘aucfan pro’, with cross-border intelligence, by which, Aucfan’s clients in Japan can get access to global data aggregated from e-commerce websites.

Aucfan is the operator of, Japan’s largest online shopping and auction bulk search and price comparison website. DataWeave has a real-time platform that aggregates data such as price, availability and product information from public domain sources globally.

DataWeave, an emerging technology company that provides competitive intelligence to brands and retailers, based on data available in public domain.

Dataweave is looking to enter the Japanese market by leveraging Aucfan’s extensive experience working with consumers, small businesses and brands in Japan. While Dataweave would get access to a ready set of customers to target, Aucfan’s existing customer base would benefit from Dataweave’s global coverage to facilitate their expansion strategy in overseas markets.

For large enterprise customers in Japan, Aucfan plans to leverage its partnership with DataWeave to support the launch of online shopping websites and marketing activities by brands in categories of cosmetics, home electronics and apparel. With the combination of Aucfan and DataWeave data, customers can conduct comparative analysis across categories on ecommerce sites in North America and ASEAN.
