Also, there are other parts of Taobao. On April 2008, Tmall.com was introduced as an online retail platform to complement the Taobao consumer-to-consumer portal. It became a separate business in June 2011. As of October 2013 it was the eighth most visited web site in China, offering global brands to an increasingly affluent Chinese consumer base.
In addition, there is Juhuasuan, a shopping website in China. It was relised by Taobao in March 2010 and became a business of its own in October 2011. Juhuasuan offers “flash sales”, meaning products that are available only for a fixed time period (on-sale products), which can last from one or two days to a month. To buy at the discounted price, buyers must purchase the item within the given time period. Plus, Taobao launched a service known as eTao. eTao was beta-launched by Taobao in October 2010 as a comparison shopping website, and became a separate business in June 2011. It offers search results from most Chinese online shopping platforms, including sales and coupon searches and also product searches. According to the Alibaba Group web site, eTao offers products from Amazon China, Gome, Yihaodian, Nike China and Vancl, as well as Taobao and Tmail.
