Baidu released the closed beta version of its e-commerce
platform with over 1 million products from
10,000 pre-approved sellers at youa.com on October 18,
reports Chinabyte. Sellers who upload more than 100
products before the platform's official launch will
receive a preferred seller designation, said the report.
An additional 50,000 users from other Baidu communities
will be allowed to make purchases on youa.com during closed
beta, and their account histories will not be deleted after
testing, said the report.
