It copied the B2B2C method in Japan Lotte, namely cool days only as a platform to provide services, in which the seller including brand manufacturers, including the individual retail business, mainly engaged in apparel stores online food appliances.
Although both sides of the
resources are called strong, but music cool days have been trouble.

But whether it is platform construction, payment channels or the rich level of goods, ah, has been slow progress >
