Zheng said that Chinese e-business service providers must overcome three major obstacles in 2005 before any company can make a great breakthrough in the sector. The first obstacle faced by C-to-C (consumer to consumer) operators is the lack of cooperation and interoperability among auction operators. To solve this problem, 1pai is intending to have an in-depth collaboration with eBay Eachnet and Taobao. Zheng has sent invitations to the management of the two companies, hoping to have cooperation between them through a summit meeting.
1pai plans to work with its counterparts in building a strong credit system and by improving their service quality (the other two obstacles for China's e-business development) so as to promote e-business in China.
Zheng also confirmed that the operation of 1pai will not be influenced by the changes surrounding Shanda's (SNDA) recent purchase of Sina's stock.
