Guangdong province received more express parcels than other Chinese counterparts in 2017, a report showed Friday.
Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces ranked the second and third, while Beijing failed to make it into the top 10, according to a report released by Alibaba's logistics arm Cainiao Network Technology with other delivery firms.
People in Shanghai spent the most on online shopping last year, followed by consumers in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hangzhou.
Consumers born in the 1980s and 1990s comprise the majority of online shoppers, while people in their 60s bought more products online than those younger than 20 years old.
The report showed that products from Japan, the United States, Australia, South Korea and Germany were the most popular among Chinese online shoppers, while Chinese mainland products sold well in Russia, Hong Kong, the United States and Spain.
The State Post Bureau expects China's express deliveries to exceed 36 billion in 2017, with about 100 million parcels handled each day on average.
