Before Didi has absorbed another local competitor, Kuaidi (快滴), now it turns to be in charge of all Uber business service in China. This story becomes true even if two companies always denied this kind of rumor several months ago. To our opinion this is a vivid lesson telling an embarrassed picture of problems foreign innovative companies now face in China. Of course, this results in a diversity of mixed public opinion.

Obviously a few Uber staffs are not excited with this merger anymore, quoted from some staffs saying, We are young and we eager to win this battle. But sadly they have not tried all efforts by chance suddenly have to accept a final result. In most public mindset, Uber always gives “out of box” surprise rather than other competitors, no matter in marketing promotion, or in user experience of product aspects. E

Because “50 RMB tax free” is cancelled, this perks disappear means lower unit price suddenly becomes a disadvantage that no one would buy it. Generally speaking the actual payment affected by new tax rate, still depends on product category. Simply put a word, there is a comparison table for a reference,

In China Alibaba group shows the strength on B2C e-commerce retail business thanks to his online weapon, and these two platforms.
