Over the past three months, Fangdd built an additional 10 self-owned transaction service centers and interfaced its systems with both the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and the Bank of Communications to fully digitize the transaction of commission payments.
“Going forward, we remain committed to further cultivating our agent base and developing more best-in-class SaaS and service solutions to fortify our industry leadership,” Duan said in the statement.
