SINGAPORE—Chinese online shopping giant JD.com midyear e-commerce extravaganza recorded the slowest sales growth in at least five years, in the latest gauge of the hit to consumer appetite from stringent restrictions under the country’s zero-Covid policy.

JD.com said Monday that turnover on its platforms during this year’s June 18 shopping festival, known as 618, grew by 10.3% to 379.3 billion yuan, equivalent to $56.5 billion, the slowest expansion since the e-commerce giant first disclosed numbers for the event in 2017.
