Money will be used for marketing, branding

Shanghai-based pet products e-store Boqii has just completed a US$25 million series B funding round, according to reports. The investors have yet to be named.

It had its own website, but was best knows for its outlets in Taobao, Tmall, Jingdong and other well-known Chinese e-commerce sites. The company has since added a wiki, social forums, group buying deals and directories, as well as developed an in-house brand of products.

Boqii has more than 3 million registered users. The newest funding will be used to ramp up marketing and branding, as well as moving into online-to-offline services.
