The group buying is different from other online business modes since it will take a long time from paying for the transaction and receiving the products. Sometimes, it takes a whole month.

Taking “24Quan” complaint case as an example, supposing online group buying attracted 10,000 consumers who paid online immediately when they bid for the product for 500 yuan (Chinese currency), the total amount should be 5 million.
