We broke the news that Groupon’s recruiting in China and also got impressed by its aggressive Group-buying China plan. And we recently also contacted one of the earliest Groupon China staff who refused to give any details but confirmed that the site would be launched soon. It seems that Groupon’s China plan is running pretty smooth. Nevertheless, I have to say, at least from the information we have so far, we are not sure if Groupon is serious about China.

The VP of Groupon China has quit?

Days ago, Ren Xin (marsocean on weibo) posted a message saying he’s quit Groupon China due to personal reason. Ren Xin, the ex-marketing guy for Newegg,  said his job is the VP of Marketing for Groupon China. This is fairly interesting because I don’t understand what could be the personal reason for a staff left a company which he just joined several months ago, and why a VP of a have-not-launched and very young site is worthy of being reported by all Chinese media as well as himself.
