Previously I wrote about the Community buy model and compared it to traditional group buying. Since that time a number of entrepreneurs and VCs have contacted me to discuss various models, from subscription services to marketplaces and agent programs.

The most popular model so far has been the Pinduoduo group buy, or to describe it more accurately discount led group buying.
