I've decided I'm finally going to order some things (mainly wardrobe fillers and accessories), but the shipping from SpreeNow seems overly expensive? I've ordered from places like Mercari before, and the shipping was only about $40-$50AUD, but for the same weight SpreeNow estimates $80. Is SpreeNow known for high shipping prices or should I just suck it up
>>
>>9832024
for how much weight though? $80 means nothing if we dont know approx how many kg you're looking at and what shipping method you're choosing
>>
>>9832050
>>9832024
(and if spreenow's not telling you that shit you need a better ss)
>>
>>9832050
It’s one pair of shoes, a blouse and a fair few small rings/accessories. I would assume no more than 3.5kg.
>>9832053
I guess I’m also asking what ss any others use/how much they charge you for regular shipping
>>
>>9832126
Yeah based on my past parcel weights there's no way that's much more than 2kg (shoes a bit under 1kg, blouse maybe 4-500g plus your accessories/packaging) , and even that should only cost you like $44-50 AUD to ship by EMS to Australia. I'd say ditch SpreeNow and stick to a SS upfront about items weights and shipping options instead; something's distinctly not right if that's what they quoted you for those items.

>>9832126
Oh whoops didnt see the second part of this. The shipping quotes I quoted here >>9832195 were from the Yoybuy estimator, which has usually been on track with what theyve charged me (just be careful with shipping by DHL as seen in the last thread, as you can be charged by volumetric weight instead. This applies to most if not all shopping services). Also they weigh each item as it arrives so you can see how much your total items (or any given combination of your items) weigh and ship accordingly, which I like
>>

Any recommendation to an good agent then? most of them don't have their currencies updated and I ani't gonna pay an extra 40 bucks for it

Just logged into my yoybuy account for the first time in ages and discovered that an item I bought five years ago and that I recieved without a problem is still listed as "pending". Does this mean I actually still have to pay for it or is this just some system error?
>>
>>9834909
Sometimes if you leave something in your cart for a while but dont submit it, it gets saved to the "Pending" section, like a draft. You probably just added it to your cart ahead of time or something and then when you went back to actually purchase it did so again, not knowing the original had been saved for you. You dont have to pay anything.
>>
>>9834893
top is women's sizing, bottom is men's

When is Yoybuy's live chat available?

Thanks anon, I checked out Yoybuy instead and their shipping estimates seem alot more realistic!

Some sellers include freebies with orders, some of them being liquid samples, hair care products etc. Since you didn't order it in the first place, it's not a big loss to take it out.

I notice a lot of stores have a listing that costs 1 RMB but the information doesn't translate very well. It usually has something to do with shipping I believe? Anybody know what it's for? Just want to know if I should be taking advantage of these or if they are actually just random notices.

>>9841215
Not 100% sure but I think those are just how they can charge you extra for shipping to remote parts of china/particularly bulky parcels (ie if you owed them 5cny extra in shipping you'd "buy" 5 of those 1cny listings instead of sending them the money by some other shady method). Not generally relevant when you're using a shopping service

I know this is incredibly specific and I am doing my research/looking at reviews (and have a couple fave shops bookmarked from previous purchases) but does anyone have any white wig listings they can vouch for as being nice quality and actually pure white (not silver)?

For taobao direct/forwarding, I would say that I would only recommend if you are comfortable with maybe having to exchange replies with customer service for possibly a few hours and having to repeat yourself multiple times in different ways in case they don't understand. Google translate will be your best friend for those couple hours. Of course this is only for if there's something that needs follow-up. You may not have to talk to them at all and ship everything through just fine. Also check the shipping options and make sure you're comfortable with those. They generally have the fastest and most expensive ones. Of course this depends on where you live. I believe there are more and cheaper options if you live closer like elsewhere in Asia.

If you do go through with it I would recommend you ask them to reweigh your items just in case and also to check your package label/slip for the weight. There was a difference between my first weigh in and the reweigh and still a difference from the reweigh to my package label. They refunded my the difference but it was a bit of a headache to deal with.

Sleeve width (I think this is the length of the armhole seam when laid flat. I searched online and one person says it's measured from the armpit corner to the top edge of the sleeve, perpendicularly to that edge, but with that method 25 cm seems too large for a tight bodysuit.)
Sleeve opening (at wrist)

Saw this on a dress in the ToAlice store and I'm just confused about what exactly it means and why they would be selling it
>>
>>9850545
Roughly:
>There are defects with the products. No returns or exchanges. If you mind then don't bid. Defects are shown in the pictures below, each defect location is not the same. Do not choose, random delivery. There might be a difference in color with the pictures taken with a mobile, refer to stock pictures.

A lot of stores will sell their defective stock (generally minor but noticeable issues) at lower prices to clear their inventory. That way people who don't mind small defects can get the item at a lower price and the item is not a total lost for the seller.

Fucking hell, it's so tiresome
This isn't the first time I've had problems with taobaotrends either, lately it's always something, and last order they completely missed to order a blouse and dress that I ordered? And didn't tell me until I was ready to pay for shipping

Anyways, I'm gonna try to decide on what other ss to use... Just a warning that taobaotrends is kind of unprofessional, and though I've had good experience with them in the past, I don't think I would recommend them anymore

Yeah i wouldn’t use them either. try superbuy, I only started using them earlier this year but so far so good, some minor communication issues but it’s good.

It it a good idea to buy shaping/slimming underwear from Taobao? If yes, what's the term for it? I tried looking in the dictionary but I couldn't find it.

>>
>>9854932
because I tried switching to Superbuy and had a far worse time: set up my account and it wouldnt send me the validation link no matter what I did, but wouldnt let me do anything without it. Tried emailing their customer service twice about it and about a year later I've never gotten a single response. So I just went back to the ss I've built up a lot of points and benefits with, and which keeps throwing big coupons at me when I don't buy for a while.

They jumped on the premade cosplay costume bandwagon because just selling base wigs wasn't as profitable. I have 3 wigs from 2011 from them and they are gorgeous, but a few years after, they changed and now it's all about peddling the same plasticy crap and premade costumes that everyone else does.

Save the pics from their shop and run them through taobao's picture search.
Maybe you'll find what you are looking for.
>>
>>9855118
Got a bunch of stuff from them, they are a reseller but I guess they might sell pre-owned items as new too.
One of my dresses was missing something, the other one was half destroyed on the chiffon part.
Only buy there if you realllly can't find what you want on taobao.

So I've never bought from Taobao before, but it's the only website I can find the right bag for my cosplay on. All the sellers for it (theres like 6 of them) have about a 4.8 average rating in all categories but none of the listings for this specific bag have reviews. They're only about 10 dollars each(minus shipping but whatever) so I'm not gonna be too upset if the quality is bad and I only need it for 2 days in July. Should I try it?
>>
>>9859175
Actually I just checked and one of them has a review that just says 'Good'?
>>
>>9845831
I miss Fantasy Sheep a lot. It was decent premade cosplay, that was always my stop if I had only a month before a con to get costumes. Can anyone translate what's on their taobao now? It's just a bunch of pictures of spaghetti.
>>
>>9859175
in a situation like that i like to check their other products and see the reviews to get kind of a gist if they're true to their word. if most of their other items have good reviews and you feel confident enough go ahead and buy. Atleast thats what I do, I haven't had anything come in any sort of horrible or wrong conditions yet. If its a good store you should be fine!

>>9852743
oh I love them, they are between releases right now. I know they recently closed a pre-order. I'm hoping they made extra for ready-stock though :S

I have used tbt for 10+ orders and feel the same way. They completley forgot to reserve a dress for me recently and I'll probably never see it on lacemarket which sucks. I feel they have been getting more and more unprofessional lately. So I'm also looking to switch to a new SS.

finally got an order i've been adding stuff to since november. happy to provide links or review any of the items; i'm pretty pleased with most of it.

the Aurora + Ariel petticoats are freaking amazing, so is the Moi Moi Honey cageskirt. excited about the shoes too, although i doubt i'll ever order shoes with scalloped straps again; it's damned hard to feed them through the buckles.

Does "spot" normally mean preorder? I've only done one taobao order before, and it was all in stock items. How do restock or preorder items work with using shipping services? Will I just be charged the "spot" price, and then more when the item is actually in stock?
>>
>>9860374
Yeah basically. For me the phrase usually comes up like "reservation spot" which means its a preorder.

When you reserve something like that with an SS, you pay the whole cost of the item upfront. There is no two payments

The short ones shown on the left here are these:
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=542771147605 (I got two pairs of the size XL, the smaller sizes are generally intended for kids. I have pretty small hands though so I'd probably recommend the XXL if you have normal or largeish hands)

The long ones on the right are these:
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=526395843575

Both are very stretchy and comfortable, and the shorter ones have absolutely no shine to them either, which is a welcome change from most. The long ones are from a similar sort of spandex as you'd find used for most zentai suits, so they have a bit of shine but nothing excessive.

Sure thing! Short story is everything is exactly as pictured, will add more detailed pics/review though (I might have to do them one or two at a time though so I dont have to spend the rest of my life making collages of collages)

The black stretch pleather is from here: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=22208727371
Took a chance on this one due to the good pic reviews and price and was happily surprised. It's an incredibly comfortable 4-way stretch with a soft, almost fleecy backing: not at all thin and flimsy like I was fearing and has a nice weight to it. Might end up being a bit too hot in hot weather so I guess we'll have to wait and see if I die, but hey, worth it for that price. Only downside is it stank like a bitch when I first unfolded it (that industrial factoryish smell you get sometimes) so I had to air it out outside for a day, but it didnt spread to anything else in my order and was fine after airing out.

Okay so since I ended up having some problems with every other SS site I tried, I got lazy and placed the order with taobaotrends.

Two out of the items I ordered were out of stock in the color I wanted, so they asked me if I wanted to get the other colorway or cancel the order, to which I said cancel. One of the items was a sweater in blue which was only available in gray, which I didn't want.
A week later when everything has arrived and they send pictures, guess what I see, the gray fucking sweater.
Also a red wig I ordered as short (was available as both long and short) is very clearly the long version.

I'm gonna mail them and tell them to refund me for those items or something, but I'm very tempted to tell them how unprofessional I think it is. Not anything rude, just stating that I'm disappointed and that I think they're unprofessional.
What do you gulls think I should do? Is it a bad idea to potentially pick a fight with them ?

Anyways, for everyone in this thread; don't use Taobaotrends anymore, they're pretty much hopeless

it's pretty decent overall, but a word of warning, one of the pearl chains became unhooked from itself seconds after i opened it and tried it on. either that or it came to me that way and i didn't immediately notice.

>>9861428
>blue bow clip
>https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=554454261192
really pleased with the hair clip.

out of the tights i have tried so far, the ivory constellation tights (https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=38894453608) are passable but just kind of meh, the gold isn't nearly as noticeable irl as in person.

the mufish rose cross otks (https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=44943932429) are printed nicely; they're just otks so they ride down constantly. they're also pretty tight so i would not recommend for anyone with thicc thighs.

the top lacy rose tights (https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=37356417904) were nice and are as sheer as the picture.

the others look good as well but i still need to try them on. i can post here again once i do, if you're interested.

Sorry for the delay, apparently somebody at work got our IP banned from 4chan...

The black spandex is from a listing I've bought from I think about 4 times now? Link is: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=538908423472

It's definitely been my go-to source for a while since it's comfortable, thick enough, drapes nicely and has absolutely no shine to it. It is actually a true black, my phone camera's just ass. For reference, pardon my shitty gijinka cosplay on the right but both the blues and the pink shown there are just different colours from that same listing.
>>
>>9861234
Finally, the pinks I'm both really happy with too.
Darker semi-matte satin: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=525674117479
Lighter tulle: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=525766233287

Stock pictures are both more colour accurate than this pic due to the aforementioned shitty camera/low lighting. Nothing much more to say about these yet except they're good quality and from the same shop as the spandex: I've gotten several colours of nice chiffon from there before too so this shop is quickly becoming my absolute fave.

>>9861807
No shit. Keyword is DESIGN. That's like saying all knockoff Kate Spade & Betsey Johnson items aren't knockoffs just because those designers didn't invent novelty purses. Or just because AP invented tea party style shoes, all of Baby's tea party designs are therefore not original designs lmao.

Oh fuck... I JUST made my first order ever using Taobaotrends and the most important item is a completely custom cosplay

>>9861877
The DESIGN that you're trying to claim is 100% original is literally a rounded rectangle backpack with a Heart cutout. That's a far cry from Kate Spade and Betsey Johnson purses. A backpack with a clear heart cutout has been done before Wego. Please stop being a retard.
AP did not invent tea party style shoes, either. Taking mary janes and slapping a bow on them does not make it a 100% original design do not steal. Baby's tea party designs are not 100% original either. Just because a brand popularizes a design does not make it their original design.

different anon, but the real issue is that itabag knock offs in general tend to be shitty and require good arranging/decoration skills. If they can't even spell the word right, they'll end up with a shitty bag.

>>9862079
The conversation wasn't about the quality of the bags though; it was about the design. I don't see any misspellings in the OP either, unless you're referencing that they spelled itabag with a space? That doesn't really reflect upon someone's arrangement or decoration skills though.

>>9862219
Sure thing. They're all from the same seller. Left to right:
Wig 1: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-6835595140.75.71db22818KwiJd&id=561132248303
I love this one. It's more pink than in the stock photo, there's definitely a big fibre blend. But it's the most natural weird coloured wig I've ever had. It's not shiny at all and the part's pretty natural. The bangs are very long so you'll need to get them cut.
One thing of note though is it doesn't come with bun clips like I was expecting, you need to put them in yourself (there's enough fibres to do it without making it look thin but it's kind of a hassle)
Wig 2: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-6835595140.92.70ae2281kQE5Qc&id=559117600514
Really natural looking wig, good fibre blend. The curls are pretty tight out of the bag. I had a little bit of trouble with some fibres coming out when I tried to comb the wig out to loosen the curls a bit but nothing serious. Same deal with the bangs as 1.
Wig 3:
This one is the only one I don't like, because it's not at all like the colour in the stock photo. It's literally a single grey tone and not a brown mix at all, which pissed me off since I need that kind of pale brown colour. I mean otherwise it's good? The tails are pretty short. The stock photo's just really misleading. It's weird since all the other wigs are really nice.
Wig 4: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a312a.7700824.w4002-6835595140.55.71db22818KwiJd&id=551497530016
This one's a tad darker than wig 2 and similar in structure to wig 1. Fibres are soft and not shiny, wig's easy to comb. Same bang deal as 1 and 2.
>>

>>
>>9864643
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=560777006345
It's a Swankiss defect or knockoff so if that bugs you then don't go for it. Otherwise it's kind of midsize for an asian backpack. It doesn't have much in the way of pouches, it's mostly just one big open space in the middle. It closes with a kind of drawstring and a clip, so don't go for it if you're the kind of person who needs a zipper on your bags. Otherwise I think it could fit an average weight of stuff just fine, but I wouldn't want to put heavy stuff like textbooks in it.
It kind of stank like Chinese plastic when I got it too so I needed to air it out.

Is Honey Honey good? I heard Diamond Honey isn't such good quality, is it true?

Is AnTaiNa still the best place for shoes?

Hey anon, I'll try to answer your questions but I am not an expert on everything. Maybe others can pitch in (and correct me if I'm wrong).

>HMHM, Kidsyoyo, Infanta still good?
Yes, though I heard HMHM is slow. Don't know about Kidsyoyo, personally.
>Honey Honey, Diamond Honey
You get what you pay for, imo. Maybe avoid main pieces/prints.
>blouses?
Depends on your style but people recommend Little Dipper and Infanta. Might be worth it to look around yourself with image search and look at reviews.
>AnTaiNa?
They changed sites, http://shop35767391.taobao.com/ . I usually recommend Sosicshop for shoes (not as much variety, less whacky).
>Fox Cherry?
They still exist but there are a lot of cheap accessory shops. Try Haruhi Clover (more sweet, country)

They will give you sass, there were a few times I had issues with something going wrong and they were kinda rude about it desu. Which is why I'm terrified for my current situation.

I started a new order with taobaoring, and while they bought the wrong blouse color (even sent a cap of the colorway I wanted), they were very polite about the issue and are in the process of fixing it.

So it seems the forwarders respond well to poorly translated rage. After replying with variations of "I already told you this", "are you even reading??" and "you're full of shit if you think a plastic axe weighs as much as a person" they replied explaining that one of their employees weighed my package eleven times and added the weights together, and that I was free to pay the correct freight cost when ready.

Is anybody else not able to access Taobao store pages or using its search function? I can see items just fine, but my connection times out when I try to actually look at any store, or search for items on the site.
I've tried using Tor and switching browsers to no avail.
>>
>>9873545
No, no you can't really. I tried replying in English and they ignored it for two days. I tried again in broken Chinese and they replied within hours. JCEX has better communication but they lost one of my orders and badly damaged another. I think I really will go back to proxies after this.

With Zhongshan? I hate to drag this out and I'm not getting defensive, but really? I've used them on and off for about three years and they've never replied in English. Sometimes I'll write a message in both languages in case my translation is shitty, but they always reply in Chinese. Is it possible Zhongshan has multiple Aliwangwang accounts and I've been contacting the wrong one?
>>
>>9875403
Nayrt.... I've used them for quite a while also and have had to contact customer support on a bunch of occasions. I always let them know I'm using translation software. Once in a while, a rep will get cheeky and say "ok" or "thank you dear" in English, but the rest is always in Chinese. They're still a million times better than JCEX.
>>
>>9875229
All the wigs are from Dreamholic, my first time trying them out.
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=549584148138

Overall I'm kind of meh about them. I'm glad I have them and tried them out, but I probably won't be getting more of their wigs. The STYLE (not color) of the sakura coral is probably my least favorite I received, just a personal preference of mine. My favorite style I received was probably this one https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=563164941608 . This one is quite thick which i like. While the sakura corel one is quite thin and lays extremely flat to my head. In a sort of bizarre way.

I decided to try out the sakura coral after seeing it on a video
https://youtu.be/JUZkliaX9fY (not a fan of the girl, I was just perusing videos about the wigs).

I'm really glad I ordered off their taobao instead of the storenvy or w/e. If I paid the inflated prices for the quality I got, I'd be pretty disappointed.

Things I liked about the wigs
-large comfortable wig cap with nice combs inside to keep it in place
-soft and nice looking fibres
-pre-styled so minimum to no trimming bangs

Things I disliked
-Felt most of the wigs were very sparse in the wefts used, and it would be easy to accidentally have a weft showing while out and about

I dont really have much to say in terms of a review. Its decent for what it is. I like the puffy sleeves. My only huge issue with it is the buttons are hella annoying to use because of the deep points of the stars. I'm highly considering replacing them myself with normal black round buttons so I'm not struggling forever trying to button them on/off
>>
>>9875301
>https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=564794038847

Mainly bought it for the hair clips. Thats why most of the other wigs I bought were in the same color, so I can use them with various cuts.

I'm not really a fan of how they look as twintails on my head but if I wrap them around and pin them up as buns they are super cute imo. Or you can also use them on the back of your head for a single large bun or high ponytail style.

Look at my post >>9875537 for more details about the wigs

Does yoybuy randomly delete accounts? I'm trying to log into mine and it says my email is not registered with their site, however when I go to make a new account it says my old username is taken.

Petti review ?
>>
>>9875403
>>9875429
Zhongshan will always reply in Chinese, but you can type in English. I used them for about 2 years and I've always typed to them in English.
I switched to JCEX for the past year because of cheaper rates and Zhongshan kept overcharging me on shipping and not putting my packages in the warehouse for ages, but you can also type to JCEX in English while they reply in Chinese.
>>
>>9875666
Forgot to add, one time with Zhongshan we were arguing for ages and not getting anywhere because of misunderstanding issues, and they actually did type to me in English (although it was clear that they used a translation software).
>>
>>9872583
Review the wig please when you get it, anon?
>>
>>9875621
I've only owned one other petti which is the Classical puppets one after the quality declined.

Compared to that one, this one is 10x better. Only thing I slightly dislike is I think the waist is a bit smaller so it doesnt fit over my literal fat ass like the CP one does. I have to wiggle into it from above to put it on. The poof and shape is quite nice.
>>
>>9875621
>>9875970
Chiming in. I've had my AA bell and aline pettis for a year now and they are both still going extremely strong. I've only ever had to layer pettis when I was looking for that fashion show OTT level of poof.

I've never ordered from Taobao before, but I've noticed when I go to order stuff from AliExpress, the shipping costs for anything with tracking are ridiculously high ($60+) for my country.
If I go with Taobao using an SS (I'm currently looking at Yoybuy), will I have the same thing to worry about?
>>
>>9876296
Depends on where you live. All shipping is based off weight (or volume if DHL) from a SS. Aliexpress is usually storefronts or sellers individually so they sometimes jack the price up for one item shipping.

That's why the FAQ talks about shitty small orders, etc for taobao. It still CAN be expensive to send one/a few items. The heavier your package is, the more the shipping price "levels" out.
>>
I just got my 9 pairs of shoes order from Yoybuy and I really am not planning on using them again. My whole package came soaked, the cardboard came apart like pulled pork, no wrapping on the shoes so shoe boxes are in the trash, 2 pairs are the wrong color and multiple pairs are actually soaked and deformed, a few have rusted. I wanted to try them once since a friend recommended it to me but I'm sticking to superbuy.

wouldn’t be completely soaked if it was just a puddle
for reference packages from taobao are a cardboard box with individual boxes inside wrapped in plastic, and the outside of the boxes are wrapped in plastic and tape as well.
>>
>>9878883
>>9878679
how is that not packaged correctly then? could just be me but that seems like pretty much as much as anyone could reasonably expect? if it's damaged that badly despite all of that, that's some dumbass postal worker leaving it in a puddle overnight or something: pretty much no packaging is gonna hold up to that, no matter how good.

#13 Is of excellent make, has a lot of weight to it, all the seams are tidy and sturdy. Over all the quality is really high, and the lining underneath makes the dress comfortable to wear. I ordered size M because the measurements were closest to mine, however the bust of the dress is absurdly large around the sides. I'm not extremely well-endowed, but there is at least 4 inches of slack per side. The dress fits everywhere else, so I'm inclined to believe that it might have just been some sort of error at the factory,- it will require me to alter it myself. It's a beautiful dress and very true to the product pictures. The back of the dress is not visible on the sellers website, so I will include a picture of in in natural light. I have very mixed feelings about this dress, perhaps I'll learn to embrace it fullt after alterations.

#4 Is absolutely fantastic. The shape of the cardigan is a little thicker than in the product pictures (which imo looks really cute), it is extremely comfortable and pretty to wear, and is of excellent quality. There isn't anything I don't like about it, and I'm sure you'd love it too.

My thoughts too. Somehow the printing of the t-shirt has a plastic surface to it, making it very stiff and crinkly. The colors look good but the shirts are very awkward to wear. Three wash cycles improved the situation a bit but I still make crinkling sounds when I wear them. Bizarre.
