Can someone help me figure out which of these options is for Eli's version of this costume? I know the option on the taobao item listing says 绚濑绘里全款 but it seems to be translated sompletely differently in Yoybuy's shopping cart system than it does in google translate

Item listing is here if that helps: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c-s.w4002-15247856397.71.e26fab6c87mkv&id=525043222190

>>9645355
Yes to the first, no to the second since my stuff is in storage right now. It's pretty nice quality, but a lot floppier than the pictures look. You have to attach it with the clips they sew into the hat though, otherwise it won't stay on your head.
>>
Does anyone know what the hell is actually going on with Buynosaur? I'm pretty pissed missing pre-orders, money and time. Gonna use a different SS next time (they were fine before, but even an e-mail explaining things would be fine) but at this point I'm just annoyed and want my stuff.

Chinese National Day is coming!All YOYBUY staff will be off duty during 1st ~4th October

However the logistics of Aramex and DHL will be off duty from
Oct 1st to Oct 8th.


This is just Yoybuy's thing but I figure the rest of the shopping services are doing the same.
>>
Sorry for newbie question, but I've been looking around and haven't been able to find an exactly straightforward answer so maybe I could hear your guys experiences. I want to make a fairly small order, if everything is in stock, and I place it within the next couple days and pick fastest shipping, how soon do you think an order can get to the US? I know the holidays happening but I'd ideally like to get it by the end of the month, just don't know if it's possible.
>>
>>9646835
Oh fucking hell I'm using Yoybuy and somehow didnt hear about any of this, I couldve shipped it out last week and avoided all this but I was waiting for a response from one seller and figured it couldnt hurt to give it an extra day or two.
The Halloween meet I need stuff for is on the 14th; pretty sure I'm screwed despite having spent extra for quick shipping.

Do you know if it's possible to cancel or modify a parcel instruction after submitting it? I only submitted it this weekend so it hasnt even been touched/processed yet.
>>
>>9646867
I'd say it is! Usually with my ss (Yoybuy) everything arrives there within about 3 business days from when I order it, barring any sudden out of stock situations or me adding more onto my order. Add another 3 business days for getting it shipped out and however long for your shipping method of choice + any holiday or customs delays and that's your arrival date. Definitely feasible, provided you dont cheap out too much on shipping

>>9646868
All their news shows up on your user dashboard. I'm not sure if you can cancel/modify or not. I'd click on the order and see what pops up for you. I think if you've got DHL or EMS you package may get to you on time though since only DHL is affected and that'll be up on the 8th.
>>
>>9646595
I find it super annoying that I can't seem to pay for this when I try to order this directly using the forwarding service.
>>
>>9647247
Yeah my dumb ass kept only checking the site on mobile and somehow didnt notice the obvious. Checked their blog page for news every once in a while because that seemed to make sense to me but they havent posted much since the anniversary "sale" so I just assumed nothing much was happening. Feeling pretty stupid now.

I chose E-Express shipping which is basically EMS, speed-wise, so there might be a sliiiight hope? But I'm worried that if they're only gonna get back to the office on the 5th and have a backlog it might not actually ship out before the weekend. In which case with typical Canada customs delays I'm done for
>>
>>9646873
Thanks anon, that's a bit comfort! I haven't used Yoybuy before, maybe I'll try them. I always splurge on shipping because I'm such an anxious mess about my package getting lost lol.

>>9648006

>>
>>9648006
If the SS has a comment section for each item, I usually type in "Want green color please" or whatever color I want for the item.

If the item has differing shades of the color you want, it might be more difficult and I agree with: >>9648147

I've never used taobao before, what SS would you recommend for a relatively small order?
I'm a eurofag so need to be able to mark the value down & would prefer not to pay in dollars so I wouldn't have to be charged for using a different currency twice.
If anyone has any experiences they can share regarding customs charges in the EU (especially regarding things such as package sizes - I guess it would be better value to make a larger order, but I'm afraid that would look a bit suspicious on a hugely marked down package) that would be great too.
>>
>>9648168
>>9648199
Anon, will you do a review of the Crucis OP once it gets to you? The last time I ordered a blouse from them and the material was really unbreatheable (it was super plasticky) so it was really hard to wear for extended amounts of time without sweating and overheating. I'm just curious to see if the material for the OP is different because I really like their style!
>>
>>9648173
It's because Paypal cracked down a while back on bootleg items which caused a lot of SS places to suffer because Paypal refused to let them use their website. (That's why Yoybuy switched to card/money-order only for a while, they couldn't use Paypal)

You should be fine to use Paypal though to buy it. It's like an automatic alert that's kinda wonky where every time I open my cart the alert switches to different items. I think they have it set to keyword recognition or something?

As long as it's not an actual brand bootleg you'll be fine.

I have that same blouse in black and was really pleased with it so figured I'd get another as a wardrobe filler! I'll post pics when it arrives (and/or can take pics of the black if you'd like).
As for the boots, they're from sosic shop, my one true love, so I have high hopes for them. Most of my lolita footwear is from there and I've consistently loved any stuff from them (durable, wonderfully consistent sizing and cushy padded insoles) so fingers crossed for these too!

how long do taobao preorders take?
I finally caved and did my first taobao order for this dress.
The preorder just ended, and my ss says it'll take 1-4 months before they ship them out. However, on the listing it says "发货时间
最晚2017-10-24 23:59:59前" which google translates to "Delivery time
The latest 2017-10-24 23:59:59 before"
I don't wanna get my hopes up but if anyone knows what that means or has any experience it'd be greatly appreciated!

Here's a nice one I found, although I'm quite lost when it comes to whether or not it's a reservation, or showing to be pre-purchased later, all the information are on pictures so I can't read it.

It's all lovely and edgy, though, right up the ally I'm looking for. (If anybody can translate, I might have a question about a few of the listings...)

Superbuy or CSSbuy.
Superbuy has a lot of options for small packages and CSSbuy always vacuums your order. If you want them to lower the value, ask the customer service to put a fake reciept on the OUTSIDE of the package.

A deposit listing on Taobao works that you pay the deposit, they make it, and once it's ready to be shipped you pay again and then they ship it, correct?

If you're ordering straight off of taobao, that is. I've done it before, but I'm not sure if I've ordered something with a deposit. I plan on making a big order-- should I just go and deal with a shopping service for the ease? I plan on pre-ordering something now and then having it wait in a warehouse after it's made until I make an 11/11 order.

November 11 is "singles' day" in China, and a lot of stores, including those on Taobao, have sales and discounts. Some shopping services also drop their service fee around this date AFAIK. It's probably comparable to Black Friday sales in the US.

Guys, it's been ages since I put in a taobao order - I want to buy a bunch of craft supplies (so basically lots of small items) and I went to use TaobaoRing but their damn webcart keeps pricing things incorrectly (marks things as costing 99 RMB instead of 0.27 for many supplies).

Is there a better shopping service for a really meticulous order? I've used Pruany's spreadsheet option before but I noticed that the shopping service spreadsheet says they often overcharge (which would be likely for an order like mine because it's gonna be a fucking bitch to process).

Any suggestions?
>>
I found a listing for this really cute dress, but the way the listing is written sounds like someone hacked them or closed them for being a bad business? Like, I know Google translates things weirdly sometimes, but when the shop is translated to 'Return bitch roll in the poor', you start asking yourself questions. The listing also mentions it's a defective store?

Could a gull help me out? https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=542062847391&ali_refid=a3_430585_1006:1102962869:N:%E5%85%AC%E4%B8%BB%E8%A3%99%E6%88%90%E4%BA%BA+%E8%BF%9E%E8%A1%A3%E8%A3%99+%E7%94%9C%E7%BE%8E:5d7af297ed756d5815db2171155bf5db&ali_trackid=1_5d7af297ed756d5815db2171155bf5db&spm=a230r.1.14.6.37337ebdwrRNK4#detail

in my experience their webcart pretty often cant import the price properly, that's why there's that little "sale price" or discount field if I remember correctly for you to type in the real price. They correct it for you when the cart is processed but it's still a pain in the ass. Part of why I switched to yoybuy a little while ago, havent had problems since.

So in trying to reserve Dolly Cross Hospital, I was successful in reserving the head piece, but when I went to buy the dress I realized you can't use foreign cards on pre-orders. So now I just have this singular head dress that will be coming to me via forwarding service.

My question is, is it worth it to add some more things to my order? Or is it economically reasonable to just have this one stupid thing in my order.
>>
>>9657534

There's a couple of things here.

The first is the charge per kg. For my country the minimum is 1kg, and I'd estimate a headdress to be under 0.5kg. Definitely worth it to throw some small useful items into the order, something like hairpins and hairclips, or paperclips, or silicon cup covers and washing sponges, small-sized things that won't take up a lot of weight or volume, because they essentially ship for free if their combined weight/volumetric weight remains below 1kg.

If you exceed that 1kg weight though, you'll be paying for another 1kg, so it's not worth it to order too much/too big/another dress.

The second is the preorder timing. Even if Dolly Cross is meant to ship out this month, there's always the chance the brand is slow and late. So what I'd recommend is to wait until you get the notice that the headdress has shipped, then go out and find some small objects to pad out your parcel with. Or, have them saved to your cart but wait until the headdress has shipped before you check out the cart. Chose shops that promise to ship within 24 or 48 hours, don't give yourself another headache buying from a lolita shop that might take another month to send you your stuff.

I was looking up info about superbuy since a few anons have recommended it and found this. Is this kind of thing a dealbreaker or warning sign for anyone here? I'm just looking to buy a few cardigans/sweaters and maybe a skirt. Nothing custom or difficult.

Original anon here. I read post >>9649434 and >>9644723. The problem is I have no idea if the outfit in question would fit based on chest and height alone since it's a pair of pajamas for a pre teen. So I was asking for a translation along with any suggestions. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I haven't lurked on /cgl/ in years.

How has yoybuy been with the charging of weight for shipping lately? I remember before people were complaining that they always overcharge on that and was wondering if it was still an issue? Also has anyone used their shipforme aka forwarding option?
>>
>>9658906
Neither does yours, which you would know if you bothered to match the words, retard.

How do you expect us to recommend a size for you when you have just as much or more information than we do

Well there's this and a few anons on cgl that talked about similar things happening so I feel like shipping is the least of your worries.

Honestly is there even a completely trustworthy SS service? Buynosaur, Yoybuy, Superbuy, a few minor problems for each company.

>>9658965
You dumbass I'm pointing out that what >>9658893 said if you learned to fucking read.
>>
>>9658967
Never had problems with Taobaotrends or Taobaoring.
>>
>>9658967
Oh darn, I thought yoybuy was cleared a while back after they allowed paypal again. I don't even need a SS I just need a forwarder but taobao's forwarding service is really pricey on shipping so I was looking for another.
>>
>>9658977
You tried any of the other ones in the guide?
>>
>>9658978
No, I've only ever used the taobao one. Any anon reviews on the forwarding for TBT or TBR?

I need your help anons. Do you guys know stores that are selling black bags for lolita?

I'm looking for a simpler styled shoulder bag or handbag that can be combined with different substyles. I'm mainly interested in Gothic and Classic, so I'd be nice if it could be used in both of them. Think of it as a "goes-with-everything" kind of bag I'm searching.

F.e. I like pic related, but the printed cross is kind of restricting the utility for classic.
>>
>>9658982
the bust and waist will be the same measurements because it's a straight cut
>>
>>9658981
I've used tbt forwarding a few times. You can either submit a normal order with the note to only use the forwarding service, or what I do is similar to the built-in one (purchase with my own account and ship to the address given by tbt). They take pictures, offer SAL, and speak english, which is a great benefit to me compared to the built in forwarding.
>>
>>9658982
>>9658991
I realized I didn't really review their service. It's basically the same if you've used their SS before - their English is good and they reply within a day for me. Sometimes they can be slow to ship things out (3-4 days), and they don't work on weekends.
>>
>>9658986
Thanks! This is the information I needed.
>>
>>9644723
I've been looking at this one for a while, Taobao Sourcing Service (tbss). There's an agent on there that posts in the BJD groups a lot and I've hard good things so far, but I'm still a little hesitant. Does it look alright?

I haven't used them as a ss before so this was very informative, thank you! I don't mind the slow shipping as I'm in no rush for the items but just wondering how fair/accurate is their weighing for shipping? Just scared of all the horror stories I've heard about ss overcharging on shipping.
>>
>>9659223
The only ss that I know of that overcharged on shipping was >>9658967 never overcharged from using Taobaoring or Taobaotrends
>>
>>9658953
my past few orders with them have been pretty fine and fairly weighed to the best of my knowledge but i cant speak for everyone's experiences
>>
>>9655472
Thank you so much!!!

Also, does anyone know if girlism went out of print? Last I checked their store was empty, but maybe they just sold out of everything? Usually they have the old issues too
>>
>>9659231
I've been overcharged by TaobaoRing before along with them forgetting to put an item in a group order (a pair of shoes) and then trying to get us to pay for them to be shipped solo even though it was their fault. We ended up having to pay for 50% of the cost just to get them.
>>
>>9658953
The only complaint about Yoybuy's weight issues I have is with DHL and that they tell you about before you select it so it's not their fault. If the dimensions is more than the weight they charge by box size so the weight estimate they use to charge by default for every order may be less than the fee so they have to charge you the remainder.

Other than that I've got no complaints about shipping prices.

You was overcharged by Tbt too?
>>
>>9658991
What do you use forwarding for if you don't mind me asking? Like 5-15 items of clothing/cosplay stuff/objects? Other than things like custom sizing or preorders is there ever a point where it's better to use an SS? I speak absolutely zero Chinese if that changes anything.

I've been using superbuy for about 2 years now I think, and I've never had a problem. Only issue is that they sometimes overcharge for shipping, which you then have to seek a refund for once you receive your package. Their customer service is also quite good, although expect some broken english, but they're always happy to clarify. I actually use them to buy fake clothes too - not Supreme - and have never had an issue, any flaws that were on a purchase I made in their QC pictures were the same as when I received the item. I've got an elaborate cosplay on the way to them now which they did a good job of helping me purchase too. I've only used Yoybuy, Taobao direct and them, but I would say they're the best option overall.
>>
>>9659693
I use it for basically anything I want to buy from taobao, mostly clothes and crafting stuff.
I try to buy from at least 5 shops to make it worth it, but tbt (and most agent forwarding services I imagine) offer small packet for lighter/smaller packages.
I prefer the forwarding service because I'm usually buying straight from the shops (don't usually have to communicate with them) and find the direct conversion rate with my CC and no SS fees worth it.
Google Translate has gotten me through any problems I have with the seller (sometimes I get sent the wrong item/wrong number of items/something is out of stock), but if that intimidates you, it's better to use an SS. Also, you can't order from secondhand/2.taobao without a Chinese bank account, so you still need an SS for that.
>>
>>9659807
Sounds good to me, thanks anon.
>>
Heads up, domestic shipping may be delayed 18-25th due to political stuff in China. Still sitting and waiting for two items to get shipped from a seller because of it.
>>
>>9660410
thanks for the warning!
>>
Is anyone else having issues with taobao's images? All displaying as either broken or just blank. I also can't log in or search for stuff properly.
>>
I'm having some major issues with taobaoring. They used to be brilliant but in the last year there has always been some issue with an order. For example we would send the money over via bank transfer only for them to keep asking for us to sent 30 dollars which is supposedly missing.

They've changed their banking system since we last used them and are saying that thepayment is listed under the bank we use, and not a person. We've sent everything we can in terms of information, but this order has been sitting dead in the water for at least a week now and I have no power over reversing the charge to wash my hands of this.

I'm honestly just done with them and want recommendations for a new SS.
>>
>>9657474
>>9657528

Thanks! I don't have IE on this computer and I didn't want to download anything because I'm using someone else's computer but I got through to the seller by using the QR code and clicking the little blue head on my mobile.
>>
How risky is secondhand taobao? Dream dress popped up there for a reasonable price and the listing has proof photos. Tried searching the archive but most posts are just asking about which SS to use. Anyone bought brand off there and had any success?
>>
I can't read this cosplay. What are the measurements? Translation gives me nothing.

I've bought many dresses from 2nd hand taobao, and I've used taobaospree (I think they're gone now though) and yoybuy. A little less than half of the sellers flaked out, but the ones I have received have been fine.

Gonna try Superbuy for my next order. Any anons want to drop me their invitation code? I'll use the first one.

I can't be of help, but how are you searching for secondhand listings? Any time I go on 2.taobao now there's no search bar.

Use mine if you like. Don't know if you get anything from it though.

Also make sure to pay for extra HD photos of the item if you need to check what it looks like. The default ones they give you are pretty much just for checking that they ordered the right thing rather than if there any issues with the product.

>tfw all the accessories for my backup Halloween coord arrived but the main dress and wig haven't

I think I'm cursed when it comes to having something ready for Halloween. It always goes wrong and now I've got three dresses ordered and none of them are ready to ship.
>>
>>9662107
Sweet, thanks Anon. Gonna risk it, worst case scenario is that I don't get the dress, and it isn't on any of the JP/EN secondhand sites currently anyway.

>>9662342
I found the Chinese name for the print and Googled it, and that happened to bring up a 2.taobao page with a search bar. Not sure how that worked. Can't link it directly, either, because the direct link leads to an error page, so I have to do a new google search whenever I want to return to it. Sorry Anon.

Don't take a chance on diamond honey. All of the socks I ordered have transfer from them trying to fold them up before they were dry, and the purse I bought has damaged lining.

Yikes thanks for the warning, I had been thinking of ordering those red socks too
