China’s regulators have never been known for moving fast on anything, and that case seems to apply even more when it comes to allowing foreign players into emerging markets like third-party payment services. China’s e-commerce has boomed over the last two years, as both domestic and global players aggressively entered a market forecast to see nearly two trillion yuan ($322 billion) in sales this year alone. Now eBay CEO John Donahoe has made new remarks saying his company is seeing “encouraging signs,” and predicting that eBay could soon become the first foreign firm to win a third-party payments license for China.
Obviously Donahoe knows much more than I do since his people are in constant contact with the Chinese financial regulator that is overseeing the process. Most of my experience comes in the tech and telecoms space, where the regulator has been notoriously slow to approve anything new. China’s anti-monopoly regulator, the Commerce Ministry, isn’t much better, often taking months longer than most of its peers to approve major domestic and global M&A. All of that said, I should be fair and note that Chinese regulators treat everyone with similar levels of bureaucracy, not just foreign firms like eBay and PayPal.

More than two years after China began awarding licenses for its domestic companies to offer such, foreign companies are still waiting for equal rights in the lucrative domestic market. PayPal said as early as September 2011 that it had applied for a China third-party payment license, and has said several times since then that it is still very keen to enter the market as soon as it gets approval. But based on my relatively long experience reporting on various industries in China, I would caution eBay and other potential applicants for third-party payment licenses not to get too excited over such “encouraging signs. That regulator, the Ministry of Industry and Information Industry (MIT), took a long time to finally issue 3G mobile licenses, after “studying” the issue for more than four years.
Those lengthy delays forced at least one company to restructure a multibillion-dollar deal, and have caused business disruptions for firms that must remain in a state of limbo until their plans are finally either approved or rejected. But in this case, the two-tiered nature of the third-party payment licensing system is clearly putting potential foreign competitors at a major disadvantage compared to their domestic rivals.

However, in this session we will shift the focus to the enormous potential of valuable services built by designers, developers and users on top of the connections, data and networked objects. But now US e-commerce giant eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY) is saying it could soon become the first foreign licensee to enter the market, providing both a big opportunity, but also a major challenge, as it seeks to catch up to Chinese rivals with more than a two-year head-start. Yet despite its long wait, the regulator has yet to issue such licenses for foreign-backed firms. It’s also known for its bureaucracy that requires every cellphone maker to get a license for each of its new models—a process that has repeatedly forced Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) to delay launch of its new iPhones in China until months after their global debuts. Donahoe’s remarks were made in response to a specific reporter’s question at an industry event, meaning I doubt that any announcement of new licenses is imminent. Around 1,250 lots will be offered, that will include Chinese and Russian objects, silver, furniture (American, English, French and continental), antique lighting, estate jewelry, Southern art, Oriental rugs and more.
Still, eBay certainly has plenty of experience at this waiting game, so perhaps Donahoe’s latest comments indicate that China could finally issue third-party payment licenses to foreign firms by the end of this year.

The real value of the IoT will not come from the technology itself, but the services built on top and enabled by it 4.
