Microsoft China has closed its e-commerce portal called MSN Mall in China. The portal co-branded as MSN YoBrand was formed in partnership with a local brand named YoBrand. It was selling focused on women’s fashion items, clothing, bags,etc from various brands. So both yobrand.com and the msn.yobrand.com domain doesn’t work anymore. There is no solid reason stated on why the site was closed and the site advises people to visit Taobao Mall for similar purchases.
Hope Microsoft have some plan in its sleeves to compete in Chinese E-commerce market.
Thanks to Chassit for the heads up.
