Digital commerce platforms have created a new channel for multinational enterprises (MNEs) to enter foreign markets. They can sell on such platforms as a third-party seller (also called a complementor) or as a supplier to the platform owner. The first approach gives better control of the marketing mix but it entails two challenges. The first is the liability of foreignness, and the second is the disadvantage of being a complementor on the platform, termed in this study as the liability of complementorship. Two empirical studies using data from and, leading e-commerce platforms in the US and China, respectively, show that maintaining control by selling as a third-party seller tends to predict lower sales compared to serving as a supplier to the platform owner. We also argue and find that the penalty associated with retaining control will be smaller for firms with a stronger brand and for firms whose consumers are favorably inclined to the digital business model. These findings provide new insight into how MNEs enter foreign markets by leveraging digital platform channels.
