The world’s search engine giant Google has launched the group buying search service in China, marking its formal entry into the saturated Chinese e-commerce market.
The new service can search and list deals provided by Chinese group buying websites, including Lashou.com, Meituan.com, and 55tuan.com. According to the company, the new service is only a search tool and Google does not assume responsibilities for the group buying contents. The contents and their positions on the web pages are generated in accordance to a computer algorithm. The new service is currently undergoing a testing stage.
