Written by Wency Chen Published on 

Nice Tuan completed three financing rounds this year alone.

Chinese social commerce startup Nice Tuan (also known as “Shihui Tuan” in Chinese) has closed a USD 80 million C2 round led by CDH Investments, bringing Nice Tuan’s total amount of financing close to USD 300 million, earlier backer GGV Capital announced on Wednesday in a WeChat post.

GGV Capital, INCE Capital, and CMBC Capital also participated in the latest round, with Cygnus Equity serving as an exclusive financial advisor. The neighborhood-based group-buying startup, which was founded in 2018,  just closed a USD 81.4 million round in May and a USD 88.3 million round in January, KrASIA reported earlier.

“We plan to set up 3 million pickup points across China in three years and allow users to get groceries sourced by Shihuituan within walking distance,” Nice Tuan CEO Chen Ying wrote in an internal letter released today. By “pickup points,” he refers to community group leaders, who are locals hired by Nice Tuan to collect orders.
