A Chinese shopping website affiliated with e-commerce giant Alibaba group plans to launch the world's first e-commerce satellite to provide consumers with customized products.

The Peoples' Daily quoted China Economic Net as saying that the satellite is scheduled to be launched in 2017.

Liu said the company aimed to develop a series of customized products with the help of such satellites.
