The superior user experience across our platform led to improved user stickiness, as demonstrated by the strong 49% year-over-year increase in repeat customers to 16.7 million. Despite macro weakness, our robust customer growth and retention is a testament to the resilience of our business model. We are confident that our strong foundation will continue to drive our overall secular business growth and enable us to maintain our market leadership regardless of macro environment changes."
Mr. Donghao Yang, chief financial officer of Vipshop, further commented, "In the third quarter of 2016, we continued to deliver strong growth in revenues, active customers and total orders. Importantly, we were able to achieve solid top-line growth and market share gain while maintaining stable margins. In addition, we continue to expand our Internet finance business which is increasingly beneficial to our core retail business and will further strengthen our overall ecosystem. By balancing revenue and profitability, we aim to continue to expand our user base and gain additional market share from China's highly fragmented discount retail market."
