After establishing global strategic partnership with agoda, China's largest online house sharing marketplace Xiaozhu.com announced strategic partnership with Fliggy, the travel brand under Alibaba Group on April 24. Backed by Fliggy's mature "Xinyongzhu" (credit living) system, Xiaozhu will provide users with the first post-pay service in the house-sharing industry.
