South China's Guangdong province on Wednesday announced the opening of China's first online shopping platform in prison at a province-wide conference on online shopping for prisoners.

In January, the Guangdong Prison Administrative Bureau singled out Conghua Prison as a pilot for online shopping. During the pilot period between January and April, prisoners made more than 13,000 orders, purchasing more than 400,000 items, without a single case of quality-related returns or other disputes.
