It was just announced by the owner of mylolitadress that for personal reasons, the owner of pumpkin cat had to close down the shop so now we have to wait and see if she comes back or cry because this might be the end of a great taobao brand.

I fell in love with this wedding invitation. I checked several taobao shops, but all of them are sold out. I did a reverse google search and found an aliexpress link, but it's almost 3x more than it is in taobao. If it sold out on taobao, does that mean it's sold out everywhere and this is a scam? The aliexpress shop has a 91% approval rating which seems low.

Keep in mind any normal delays will be even worse now due to Chinese New Year, as factories, warehouses, and ports shut down for it and sometimes a little before and after.
>>
>>8836125
>does that mean it's sold out everywhere and this is a scam?

It could be that they are a reseller who has leftover stock.

I asked customer service but they couldn't really give me an answer. What is the difference between these shipping options?
>>
>>8836842
Not much. They are shipped with different services from different places and with slightly different travel times. Just get the cheapest one 2bh.
>>
How much time do Global Direct Shipping EMS take to prep and ship?
>>
>>8837251
To add on : I already paid for the EMS shipping to the USA and it's on "wait a library" ?
>>
>>8837256
Means it's pending shipment.
>>
>>8836844
Which one is the fastest though?
>>
>>8837373
EMS. Sometimes DHL is an option & this one is the fastest but also the most restrictive on what you can ship.
>>
>>8837373
Wait, didn't read correctly. Thought you meant in general. the fastest would either be Guangdong or Hong Kong depending on where your ss is.
>>
Hi everyone. I'm sorry if my question is really stupid, I've never used Taobao before.

I can speak Chinese semi-fluently. I was wondering, could I message a seller and ask them if they would ship an item to the US so I wouldn't have to go through a shopping service? Will any sellers do this if you communicate with them in Chinese?

Thanks guys.
>>
>>8837488
I've done it before. Usually sellers that also have an ebay shop are willing to do this since they deal with shipping to other countries anyway.
>>
>>8837490
Awesome, I'll message a few sellers then. I've seen some of them take Visa and also ship USPS. Is this a good indication they would be willing to ship to the US?

Do I need to create a taobao account to be able to do this?

Was it a pretty smooth transaction for you? I apologize for all the questions. Like I mentioned, I'm very new to taobao. Thank you!
>>
>>8837262
Thank you. Do you know where I can check the overseas order number? I'm trying to navigate using google translate but it doesn't help too much
>>
>>8837506
... honey, if they ship USPS they have to be in the US??
>>
>>8836842
when i've gotten the cheapest one from spreenow, it only took a week to be delivered which shocked me.
no point in buying the super expensive ones t b h, the cheapest ships fast anyways.
>>
>>8837506
If you have an email address for them you can just message them directly to place an order, otherwise you need a Taobao account to message them. This post in EGL talks about it, though it's a bit outdated. http://egl.livejournal.com/17987707.html
The last time I did it was with Fantasysheep, I think. Everything went well, the person they had handling their email had good enough English for us to be able to communicate. Got my stuff after about a month and a half, so pretty normal turnaround time for Taobao.
>>
>>8837924
I'm sorry, then I don't understand what the little USPS logo is doing under the shipping options.

>>8837940
Cool, thanks! And like I said, I'll be able to communicate with them using Chinese, so I won't have to struggle with English.

I decided to try out Buynosaur because they were having a 10% off all orders made during January. So far they've been great to deal with (Really wonderful agents with good English and a sense of humour!) and they're also willing to buy from the secondhand area of Taobao. So far I haven't gotten a quote because they haven't been able to contact all the sellers due to CNY, but they've been very nice about it.

>>8841135
According to their website the fees are usually 12% for basic and 15% for premium but at the moment they're at 8% and 10%, so I'll most likely go with the premium this time (I'm getting some small handmade things+a secondhand item as well.)

My order is in!
The cat dress is coming in from Ali still because it sold out on taobao.

>Randoseru
Great quality, I love it.
>Pink Dress
Heavier than I expected, it'll be good for colder days.
>Kokokim replica dress
About as good as I expected for the price, it's a light peach instead of pink and the print is that cheap iron-on deal that comes off easy. They sent me a pin with a pikachu on it.
>Pink shirt
It's alright, same iron-on applique as the dress
>Safety Shorts
They're alright, thin, I was hoping they'd be lined but it's no big deal
>Cardigans
I think they sent me a smaller size than what I ordered, it fits fine but I wanted them large. My monkey arms juuuuust fit.
>White skirt
It's pretty good, thick material etc.
>Socks
Good as socks can be, the purple is darker than you'd expect but not too dark.
>Cat Sweater
It's great, but feels like a cheap sweater?
The material is good and all, and so is the lining, but it's stiff and feels like those sweaters you get at walmart, if that makes sense. Maybe it just needs washed/broke in.

If anyone needs links hit me up, internet is being terrible but I'll link you as soon as I can!

I'm starting to question Taobao's forwarding services.
First a whole kigu disappears and now a single shirt weighs 1.5kg on its own.
>>
>>8842680
>zhongshan
can't say I'm terribly surprised. if you're willing to use aliwangwang, I'd try asking them to recheck, because that seems more than a bit off.
>>
>>8842680
I had issues with my last order with them (zhongshan) listing the weight of some items as higher than it actually was. When I contacted them about it, they admitted that the weight was wrong (and gave the correct weight) with no trouble, however I would need to contact them about changing the price during consolidation.

When I did consolidate, I asked them about changing the price, which they did...except the adjusted price still didn't correspond to what the actual total weight should be. I had to pester them again about it, after which they changed the price to something a bit better, but still not the proper weight (total was 5.078 kg or something, so I was prepared to eat the charge for 5.5kg, but the end price I paid was 6 kg worth)

I think I'll still continue using them for now since the only alternative forwarder seems to have mediocre ratings (and only ships UPS to Canada), but if they keep this up, the money saved through forwarding isn't worth it.
>>
>>8842692
Clicking the little face icon for zhongshan keeps making me relog on to Taobao,

I don't think it's a browser issue since I've tried on both chrome and firefox.

Is aliwangwang the only way to contact their consolidation service?

That's the same thing I was wondering. I wanted to see if they were going to offer the matching bow accessory thing as I didn't snag one last time.

I was gonna suggest kerakerak/Cake Love maybe but it seems their shop is suddenly almost entirely empty...all i have otherwise are links to that cheap toast backpack that always comes up or a bunch of things listed (annoyingly) exclusively on etsy/aliexpress

also wasnt sure whether to ask here or tumblr, but if your order isnt finalized yet would you potentially be willing to add in one item for a fellow toronto gull if i were to paypal you upfront for all fees plus a bit extra as thank you?

https://www.taobao.com/go/chn/transit/price.php?spm=az1314.20150122.0.0.suZg30

and I would contact them and try to explain as best you can what occurred, because otherwise they might just confused and/or misplace the replacement item the shop is sending back out to you. I had a zhongshan horror story in one of the earlier threads where I got sellers to ship out missing items, only for zhongshan to be all "????" even though they had clearly received the replacements and had signed off on them. eventually had to just give up and tell them to send everything else and forego including the missing items in my order, because they could not be assed to figure out what happened to them.

Pretty much what all anons say. Their language is very good, their communication is friendly, respectful yet has enough room for a joke from time to time. They're also very responsive to questions, although I don't know if they can keep up that level of communication in busier periods, or once they start getting more famous.
They were also very punctual to let me know that my seller, who originally said they'd send my things out before CNY, changed their mind.

The only thing there's left to review is actually receiving my order, but if that's also okay, they've got me hooked.

>另:跑单或其他原因导致的衣服不要之类定金不退!!

Is this saying that if they don't meet the minimum orders then you don't get your deposit back? Or what? I couldn't really make out what the conditions were. I think the second line is that they don't accept returns or exchanges for accessories? The last line is that 20 is the minimum? Stuck on the very last part, when in the year are they planning to manufacture/ship out..?

VIP price just means that if you (or an SS) has VIP status with the shop, usually from buying some X amount of stuff within a year or whatever, you get the discounted price. you can still buy items with the VIP tag without having VIP status, you just pay more.

pleased read the FAQ in the OP if this is your first time ordering, it goes over VIP pricing and lots of other basic things.

Click on the links shown in step #2 there. Use chrome to translate the drop down options to request a refund. There should be one for item did not arrive. It's actually really simple, you don't need to write anything yourself. Alipay will make a decision in 2 days. It is pretty much always in the buyer's favor.

When would be the best time to order after CNY? Like maybe February 20th or so? I know that different stores come back at different times, but I just want to avoid the annoying mess that usually comes with them coming back from CNY.
>>
>>8839147

>>
>>8845935
CNY is February 8th and about 100,000 people in the factory areas are stranded due to bad weather just trying to get to their family homes so who knows how many more are stranded for the same reason in different areas. I would think that would effect when people return (at least shop owners who can afford extra days) and if the situation now is like when everyone will be rushing back to the cities, it's going to cause some delays then too.

tl;dr I'd wait until the last week of February in case weather/mass travel delays people coming back and once they do get back a lot of them who sell via other platforms like ebay and amazon on top of taobao will be swamped trying to catch up with international orders along with Taobao orders.

So spreenow is like buychina (where they're a direct reseller you only need to pay them once?) Is it cheaper to use spreenow or use a TB agent? It
s been a few years since I made my last taobao order.
>>
>>8845959
You mean is it cheaper to use a 3rd party (non-taobao) forwarding service or use a shopping service?

Technically it's cheaper to use a forwarding service since you're only paying for international shipping instead of that plus a service fee for them doing the ordering for you.

But, it comes down to whether or not those few extra dollars are worth the hassle of having to make a Taobao account, talk to sellers directly, and not have your items inspected before they're sent out.

Buynosaur order came! Shipping was estimated to be 7-14 days and it's just a few days shy of the max estimate. Everything arrived fine despite tracking not working once it left Hong Kong which I figured would be the case.

Overall I'm super pleased because the whole process they were amazingly helpful and patient with all my questions and the few errors that happened along the way where their paypal invoice for me didn't show all the fees I had to pay so I paid what it requested which was just for the item fees and not their fee or domestic shipping and they happily waived the fees for me until my items arrived and I paid them then. So yeah, they paid out of pocket for my items instead of making me wait until their system was fixed so I wouldn't have to wait another day or two to get my items bought.

Depending on how lax your definition of affordable is, I'd reccommend qminishop, OnceAponACookieTreat, or dollfoodminiatures. Mintmarbles has a cute ring that was posted in the bread thread too. And found some really cute/realistic baguette earrings too, but they're like $35 CAD

Two more non-etsy recommendations too:
heychickadee.com/collections/foodie/products/little-bakery-pin-set
marisan.petit.cc (japanese, but it's a shop literally dedicated to bread-related products. if you saw the bread beret/earmuffs/purse from the bread thread, they were both originally from here)

I've seen buynosaur like three emails and theyve ignored all of them

Not sure what the deal is. I know it's New Year's but their website says they are available for questions
>>
>>8848240
Really? That's odd because they replied to my email yesterday. Which address did you send it to? Also if you submitted a quotation it does take a day or so to get a reply since they contact the shops first before they contact you and given that it's CNY it's probably taking longer to get a response.
>>
>>8848244
I used the contact form on their website. Haven't submitted any quotations, just had some questions about shipping
>>
>>8848251
Huh, that's weird. They might just be busy since it sounds like people are swarming to them now. Either that or their contact form is busted.

Send them a direct email to [email protected]

I love this dress and I would like to pre-order it. However, this will be my first taobao order and I'm afraid I'll mess up and something will go wrong.
Am I better off ordering from Clobba?
They marked it up to 62 bucks and I would like to save that money if I can.

Has anyone here ordered cotton fabric? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but about how much does it weigh to ship per meter/how much does it cost? I found a shipping calculator but I don't have a way to weigh the fabric I already own and I'm getting different numbers from a google search.

Looking into buying my first wig and since I'm making a haul from taobao anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any reccomendations of stores they really liked or such. Not looking for anything fancy, really just a curly medium length light brown wig.

not sure what their selection is like at the moment what with cny coming up, but i've bought from cckids before and been really satisfied

I'm sure this has been asked a million times and I'm sorry for asking once more but are there any store that sells tights or OTKs that's suitable for a taller stature. Like 5'11 tall.

>>8842692
I've used Zhongshan several times, but the biggest issue is that they use DHL, which is more likely to get checked by customs (that happened with my recent order) I ordered a bunch of anime clothing lucky pack stuff, it was ok in the sense that I would wear most of the stuff despite being eh on the series (SAO) but the design of it was ok, but I'm surprised that the LP for a kawaii shop was so disappointing besides surprise clear messenger bag. Plus a wtf sweatshirt that had nothing to do with anime?

is there an easy way to search for miniskirts on taobao that don't have safety shorts attached?

Thank you very much
It shows the seller shipped but since the status did not update I put that as the reason

Hopefully it can be resolved soon.

>>8849878
I've ordered some from the original seller, but CNY means I won't get them for a while. I'll let you know how they are when they come in.

Does anyone use the taobao app for iPhone? I'm trying to figure out how to search by new. Like on the desktop version I can sort by new listings when I'm searching but I can't for the life of me find this option on the app version. Does it exist?

How do you do preorders on Taobao? Do you get your shopping service to buy the "deposit" and send them an email to let them know you need to buy the rest later?
>>
>>8851755
If you use a shopping service where you submit the cart for 'processing' (where they usually message the seller or check stock + sale prices first) then they can change it to the full amount before you pay. Spreenow and bhiner do it this way iirc.
>>
I'm about to make my first taobao order in forever. Is bhiner still safe to use?

>>8851234
They don't have reviews yet because it's still a preorder IIRC.

So what are some of everyone's favorite taobao suggestion blogs? I'm waiting for CNY to end so I'm looking to add some more cute shit to my cart. I've exhausted the spreadsheet and taobao reviews a while ago, though... So I'm looking for more cute stuff!
>>
>>8852446
I think taobao-finds.tumblr.com is the biggest even though updating is sporadic.
>>
>>8835949
Not taobao, but I just saw them at H&M here in the states. They're a fair bit pricey, especially compared to taobao, but with CNY and shipping it might work out.

How long does Chinese New Years typically go on for for most people? I made a payment to my shopping service who was very communicative on Thursday, then just stopped replying. They apparently saw it, and have not said anything since then.

I dunno about other shopping services but SpreeNow says they'll be back the 13th, and most places start working again a week after CNY. They'll probably get back to you next week.
>>
Pumpkin cat's page is gone. Does that mean they're gone for good?
>>
>>8853186
I've heard a few people that were happy with their bedding sets, but make sure to nuke it in the dryer for a while first. You always run the risk of bedbugs from buying off of Taobao, It happened to one of my friends.

As for sizes, Chinese bed sizes and US/European are pretty different. http://www.sizechart.com/home/bed-size/chinese/index.html
You may not be able to find something that fits the size of your bed, or it might fit weirdly. Take a look at your bed's measurements and see if they fit!

Are there any shopping services that just forward you your purchases without checking on them. I'm not ordering freaky shit I'm just really uncomfortable with people touching my things in what may not be a factory/industrial environment. Can you ask that they not?

inb4 yes it's ODC
>>
>>8855101
*ocd*
>>
Is there any way to view a store's products if the store has been taken down during CNY? I take very, very long amounts of time deciding what I want to buy so starting now would be nice.
>>
>>8855101
Yoybuy does have a forwarding service but they turned super sketchy middle of last year, I don't know if they've gotten better

Depending on where you live Taobao itself also has a forwarding service but you gonna have to deal with ordering in Chinese
>>
>>8855101
...hate to burst your bubble but where do you think most taobao products come from in the first place? this aint no etsy exactly. chances are, the shopping service (especially if you use a smaller one) is far less of an industrial/factory-like setting than the original seller
>>
>>8855110
waybackmachine maybe?
>>
>>8855101
Just fair warning most forwarding services will go through your stuff too. Mine told me when items were missing from my order. So they obviously checked. They don't check for quality though, just confirm the package slip.
>>
So.. Wait. Some TaoBao shops ship to USA easy now?! Like, I can pay with AliPay, and order something with a service fee straight from TaoBao? What?
>>
>>8856148
Taobao shops don't ship to the us. Taobao the site has a forwarding service. You buy the item, pay cost + domestic shipping, have it sent to forwarder, pay forwarder cost to ship. No ss fee through the forwarder works a nominal fee into the international shipping charge. Still generally cheaper but you'll get no help if something goes wrong. I've been able to solve any problem that comes up on my own tho and haven't had to rely on the Chinese speakers I know for help so it's not that hard.
>>
>>8856162
So.. Wait. No SS fee? Why? Surely they'd want compensation if they're still shipping the items to you. Sorry, I've been of /cgl/ for a year now and I generally forgot how TaoBao completely worked aside of the fact that you need an SS..
>>
>>8856162
>>8856166
Nevermind, I'm an idiot. Read the FAQ. My apologies
>>
I wanna buy a couple of OTKs and tights from Mu Fish, but I really feel like doing a SS order for just that seems like a waste. Do they have an Ali or any other shop that I can order directly from them or am I stuck waiting until I have a bigger order planned?

Ordering something off of agencytaobao and there's an option to "drop packaging". What does that mean exactly? It says you shouldn't do it for fragile items but I'm just ordering some underwear.
>>
>>8860427
I think it means getting rid of excess packaging from the seller to make it cost less. Not Taobao, but I know From Japan gives you an option for them to open your bought items and remove all the packaging/flyers from the seller and just send the items in FJ's packaging so you're not paying for extra weight.
