Hangzhou-based C2C & B2C e-commerce site Taobao was recently ordered to halt the sale of pharmaceuticals on its Taobao Mall platform. Zhejiang province's food and drug administration authorities have ordered Taobao to make the necessary alterations as quickly as possible.
Links to pharmaceutical goods on Taobao Mall are no longer functioning, instead displaying a message stating the user must log-in directly to the merchant's website in order to make any purchase.
