Yahoo starts embedding Groupon code in global distribution deal

Groupon is accelerating pretty fast. It’s signed a partnership deal with eBay recently and there continue to be rumours of a Yahoo acquisition.

However, just as Mike Arrington confirmed in the above analysis piece, we’ve heard today that Yahoo is in the process of implementing a global distribution deal with Groupon, not an acquisition.

And by global we mean every single Yahoo site across the planet is currently in the process of implementing Groupon embed codes into Yahoo sites.

Understandably, the chatter about this has spread across the UK’s Groupon clone market like wildfire.

As well as eBay, Groupon closed a similar affiliate deal with Ning recently. Groupon is currently live in more than 100 North American markets and running nearly 200 deals per day.
