Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA) opening up the Alibaba.com platform, allowing American companies to sell their products

Alibaba said Tuesday it is opening up the Alibaba.com platform, allowing American companies to sell their products to small- and mid-sized business buyers around the world.

That will help Alibaba (BABA) better compete with Amazon (AMZN) and Shopify (SHOP), which already have a thriving marketplace for large companies to sell to business customers across the globe.

Previously, American businesses could buy only on the Alibaba.com platform. Now they can sell to other businesses in the United States, China and elsewhere.

Opening a Chinese e-commerce platform to American businesses at a time when isolationist economic policies are on the rise may seem surprising.
