Parity noticed that in addition to some categories that are close to Douyin's ecology, Douyin's recently launched graphic and text functions have also been directly delegated to Douyin Box. Xiaohongshu positioned itself as a "fashionable community for young people" in the previous year. The categories in the Douyin "Shopping" application seem to coincide with the previous positioning of Xiaohongshu. The Douyin Box seems to be a step that ByteDance intends to avoid the traditional search e-commerce competition, and instead move towards the trend, fashion and other subdivisions.

For favorite products, Gen Z rarely talks about price, and interest drives consumption. Douyin is an e-commerce business with obvious intentions to target the "Gen Z".

The birth of Douyin Box naturally carries the beautiful concept of ByteDance e-commerce closed-loop, but from the current point of view, Douyin Box seems to be unable to shoulder this heavy task.
