Taobao Stores

Updated on August 7, 2014

What is Taobao?

Taobao is established by the private company Alibaba group which specializes on internet based e-commerce businesses. It started it's operation on the 10th of May, 2003. This online shopping tool can be compared to Ebay and Amazon.

It allows solo enterprises and small businesses to sell their products by creating an online store that will enable them to list their items. Aside from that, consumers will be able to view not only the items but the feedback, ratings, comments of other consumers who bought something from the store. This will help them identify the quality service that the store provides.

Taobao Agents

If you're living outside the countries China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, there's still a way for you to purchase products from Taobao with the help of Taobao agents.

Taobao agents serves as a bridge between foreign buyers and Taobao itself. They are your personal shopping agent that supplies needed tools (such as shipping options, payment methods etc.) and assitance for foreign buyers to shop online from Taobao. Of course, they have additonal service fee on top of all the obvious fees you have to pay. There are some Taobao agents that includes links of taobao stores divided into categories to make it easier for you to shop.

Here's a list of some Taobao Agents you can seek assistance to:

Smalltao

They don't have service fee however they increase the product price to 25% which makes it a bit more expensive compared to shopping directly from Taobao. For shipping method, you can choose either Express mail or Standard post. As for payment method, the options provided are paypal, credit card, Money Gram, T/T or Western Union.

Taobaonow

Based from my own experience, this agent provided high-quality service. They have clear rules on how to order through them. They give you updates in a timely manner. They have been active since 2009. They had recently launched a new website Spreenow which has a more updated user interface and technology.

Yoybuy

One good point about Yoybuy is their discounted shipping fee of 50% for DHL shipping method. They also have a clear price rate. Their website is well organized with additonal tools that allows weight estimation, size conversation, cost calculator and etc. They have different language version for their website which is pretty cool.

Home Decors Taobao Stores

You can also find several household things in Taobao. There are various products that will surely fit your home. Whether it's for your bedroom, kitchen or dining area, you'll be able to find stores that caters to your home needs.


Things to remember when shopping in Taobao

For first time Taobao consumers, I would suggest that before you buy, to research the prices first. Since there's a lot of Taobao stores out there, chances are the products they have is also being sold on another Taobao store. If you want to be thrifty, always canvass first for the products you're lookin and if you already know someone who's been using Taobao, ask for their assistance as it might be confusing first especially if it's your first time to buy something from it.

Happy Shopping!
