“UForce, a virtual group buying marketplace, went live Monday.
More than five million buyers are members on the site, ready to get discounts on the products and services they wish to buy.
The site mirrors group discount sites like Groupon and Living Social, but instead of just receiving the discounted offers, users group together to make them. Weight Watchers, Travelocity, WireFly, Lenovo, and AC Lens have all registered with the site so far. As of late May, Andrew Atkin, founder and CEO of UForce, had recruited 120 sellers.”
