Reposting reply.

>>9881260
That's fine with EMS. EMS has, lately, been shipping very fast to CA in general.

I'm in the Bay Area. I had two packages shipped EMS and I got one package in 2 days and my other in 3 days. It only will be delayed if you have something questionable in your package.

check the spreadsheet for the shops that do custom sizing. some of them are labeled but there's a few in there that do custom sizing that aren't labeled. i haven't figured out a search term for custom sizing yet, so you'll just have to check each store to see if they do it.

Submitted a small order because I've never really done Taobao before... If all goes well I'll probably do a larger one. This is less than 50$ worth of stuff.

>>9881951
>less than $50 worth of stuff

I should hope so. If you paid over $20 for all of this then you really need some assistance with Taobao.

>>9881958
I think the total is like 14$ before shipping, which will hopefully be cheap since this order will weigh practically nothing.

More experience Taobao-ers; If I place an order through SpreeNow on friday, is that enough time for the items to arrive and be shipped to me before June 2?

I know that part of it is up to luck of the draw, but I was hoping for a better answer than 'EMS takes 5-8 days'
>>
>>9883409
It could take 24-48 hours for your items to be bought and 3-10+ days for items to arrive. Then on top of that the 24-48 hours it takes to ship your package and then the time it takes to arrive to you.

Maybe a bit of a stretch, but does anyone know of shopping services that are like just one person who's completely fluent in English? I need to make a custom order. I know a long time ago there was a woman that was running like a one-woman SS operation (poodle something I think?). I'm not worried about the higher fees.
Basically, I'm bald now and interested in getting a full lace wig made and I don't trust the English capabilities of my current SS (taobaoring)

https://dreamingqueenhairtopquality.aliexpress.com/store/1130153

https://evahair.aliexpress.com/store/1844012

I havent had the chance yet to order from Dreaming Queen but I have this one from Eva: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Short-Lace-Front-Human-Hair-Wigs-For-Black-Women-Brazilian-Remy-Bob-Wig-With-Baby-Hair/32805353901.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.f5004c4dx0IAZv

I've since taken it apart it reconstructed it as the cap was a touch too small and the hair looks different now after I deep con'd it but just from experience remember that you get what you paid for, especially if you're ordering non-remy hair.

In it's original state, the hair's pretty soft and the wig is constructed well enough. It's pretty much a 360 wig as the lace goes all around but by god does this damn thing shed! I want to say it's because the tracks are single wefted so the hair isn't that secure. Also it's 130% density but it's thin. I now see that they're offering it in a 150% density and virgin hair so there's that.

I've also had a good experience hair wise with Gossip. I can't tell you how there are communication wise as it was my mum who originally ordered the wig but I don't remember her complaining about them. I got her 360 curly wig, the hair was good, minimal shedding, etc. Too bad my sister stole the wig. I'm still mad about that lol.

Ask your proxy for an update. I had one item sit for a week so I asked and they had to remind the seller to send it out. Waited another week and still nothing so I just got them to cancel it.

Just talk to the proxy and see what's up. You may need to just cancel it.

Is there a way to search on secondhand taobao? I want to see if there are any Mary Magdalene pieces on there.
>>
I'm currently setting up an order with taobaoring and one of the items is a prop (it's a staff, about a meter in length).
They told me that they'd have to send it in a package separate to everything else, which I found reasonable. However they went on to say that if it breaks on the way to me then it's on us and they won't take responsibility.

Is this normal or even acceptable? I order things from Amiami - who order things in from third parties, and if anything was broken while being shipped to me they just ask for details and look to replace the item or reimburse you.

Once I even had the box sent back to them and they checked it again when it returned and they found something was damaged either on the way over or back due to customs and refunded me before I even had a chance to pay for the second lot of shipping.

Anyone else had a scenario like this? Any advice? I'm wondering if I should try a different SS as I've had a fair share of problems with Taobaoring in my more recent orders but I'm not sure who else comes highly recommended especially with items which are not clothing.
>>
I have a question. I ordered from Taobao to ship to the US. Does shipping include the tracking number to track the package here in the US? I believe Taobao used to include it in the past but idk if that changed. If it doesn't include the tracking number by default, how or who should I go about asking for it? How should I format my message asking for the tracking information?

The situation is that my package was attempted to be delivered but I wasn't present. Usually it is DHL who delivers my packages but the tracking information on Taobao shows that it was left at the "Nearest UPS Access Point." Thanks.
>>
>>9902470
Not anymore, it's really fucked. You can only scroll through the listed categories now ugh. On a similar note does anyone know anywhere else one can find secondhand taobao stuff besides lacemarket? Is there anything like fril/yahoo japan that chinese lolitas use? I know there's a taobao/offbrand sales group on fb but it's mostly cheap white girls trying to sell their replicas and bodyline stuff
>>
>>9902470

I saved a search url directly and for some reason I can now use it to search stuff:

https://s.2.taobao.com/list/list.htm?spm=2007.1000337.6.2.plHhk9&st_edtime=1&q=magdalene&ist=1

If anons are looking for another keyword, replace the "magdalene" with whatever. Doesn't recognise spaces (obvi). Hope that's helpful for some gulls out there.

I have a problem with a preorder and want to ask for some help;

At the start of March I preordered this cosplay via Superbuy https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=561286093854
Off the top of my head, it was to be ready late April. I saw the the shop was from Tmall and therefore probably reliable. The seller delayed shipping several times, saying that it would be ready on some date - for example, Superbuy automatically asked for me in late April and was told it would be ready around the 5th of May. The last date that it was supposed to ship was the 3rd (2 days ago), but about a week ago the listing was taken down and is as you see it now. The listing had 17 reviews before it was taken down with people posting photos of their costume.

When Superbuy contacted them the other day on my behalf, they received no reply (pic related). What should I do? I don't need the costume urgently, but I have been waiting a while past when they said it would be delivered, and I do want it quite a bit. I don't mind waiting longer as long as I get it.

tl;dr: Cosplay order delayed several times past when it was supposed to be shipped. Listing taken down but is from a reputable store. Still want the costume, but not sure what to do.

Sorry for the blog post but this has just been a nighmare argh. just organised with seller to pack it into a shorter tube under 1m long so hopefully this should be over soon. Let it be known that PU is a bitch to ship everyone be careful in the future and be doubly sure of what your warehouse's size limit is lol. I love using the fs but it can be such a hassle sometimes.

I panicked when I wrote this message, rip. However I easily found it by searching the nearest Access Point to my address on UPS' website. I definitely wish Taobao would easily provide the overseas tracking number though.

>>9903727
Is this through the forwarding service? You should be able to find the tracking number in the transaction details. This is on mobile but if you're on PC you can click on 查看物流 and it should be next to 运单号码.

The product 'color' is

and there are 15 items 'in stock'.

I believe it's saying something about needing to wait for other people to order the item (a wig) before they will be produced + shipped, but I'm not sure specifically what it's saying or how many more people need to order.
>>
>>9905652
>Collection page, as usual, 8 orders needed before starting production

>If you need it, go ahead and buy the item

The "color" option is just a reminder for how the listing works ("Collection, 8 orders before production").

This is why you always ask your SS for photos, even if you have to pay extra for them.

Really hoping the seller will either let it be returned for repairs or exchange it for another one because in the box they found a large leaf and a small leaf but it looks like there's two more large leaves missing so that's at least four missing parts.

Hey gulls, been a while since I've been in one of these threads... I usually throw on a few cheap bdsm things when I make an order, I have been for years. Suddenly all search terms just come up with nothing, or one or two items that I guess pass as cosplay? Is there some kind of safe search/censorship issue now? Even when I started searching dildo or other sex toy terms to get something to come up, I could only get condoms, that's why I figured it must be a safe search thing. Can it be turned off? I do have an account but didn't have any luck fishing around in the settings.

You're better off looking through reseller sites for aprons, then google the brand names and look for their taobao store fronts.

small question
I never used taobao but while searching for something, I stumbled upon chinahao.com. The site is not in the spreadsheet but the item I want to buy is really small (a single bjd accessory) and not exactly worth jumping all these other hops. Does anyone have any experience with that site?

The first one translates as"Unlimited number of custom," and the second is "Can be a variety of mixed map custom." It seems to me the second is basically the first but accepts multiple designs. The description images are the same on both, so there's no clarification there.

If your shopping service does DHL and is fast as fuck with placing an order/packing the stuff, it's possible. But that's only because DHL is 1-2 days for me.

Does yoybuy really take pre-orders or not? There was an item I wanted a month ago and they missed my pre-order even though I placed the order a week before it ended. Now it's back again, but they still haven't placed my pre-order.
Which SS actually does take pre-orders? I don't want to miss on this yet again because they somehow never place my order.

I use spreenow and they take pre orders. You do have to pay the full price upfront if I remember correctly.

They take preorders but you have to tell them you know it's a preorder and that you'll pay the full price upfront.

So I've been shopping around for a bit and I've found this store that seems okay. The problem is they don't really clarify measurements needed for custom sizing that well. I'm not used to taobao at all.

Usually it's best to message the seller and ask if they'll do custom sizing for you - some sellers will do it even if it isn't listed as an option! Never hurts to ask.

Weird. I've been using Taobao directly, also with Visa, and no problems on my end.

>>9945823
Call your card provider/bank before making your purchase. They might have blocked transactions from China. Happened with one of my cards. Your bank should be able to fix it so you can try the transaction again.

For those who order direct from taobao-- are you ordering from USA? I want to do a direct order at some point bc I'm tired of shopping services but I just wanted to know if you've had any issues with sellers shipping overseas.
>>
>>9949433
The sellers don't ship to you-- they ship to a warehouse who consolidate the packages for you. I wrote a tutorial on this a while ago, I hope you or some other anons find it helpful.

I really want one of these items, but the price is extremely low which means this price is only a deposit. Does anyone know how this would work when using a middleman like Yoybuy? Should I just "buy" the deposit and see if it works?

I have a bunch of them and they get pretty nice on me, with some room (but not enough to get loose). But I'm fairly small and skinny. Do you want me to try it on something that has the circumference of your leg to let you know if it fits?

That's because there is no bust/waist/hip lol. Along the top from left to right: clothing length, sleeve length, sleeve width, clothing width, fits person of __cm height

from top to bottom: short sleeve, small sleeve (sorry, not sure what this is, they might have a picture explaining in the listing?), medium sleeve

Pardon me if I'm blind, but I couldn't find this info in the FAQ or the spreadsheet.

Is there a list of shops that take cosplay commissions? (As in you can request an outfit for a character that isn't listed in their shop?)

Sorry anon, tried reading the listing but there was no info about these two "blacks". I'd suggest sending it to your SS so him can send a message to the seller (if you can't yourself).

So I started getting the login pop-up, I created an account, and it went away. Now I'm getting some sort of verification pop-up where I need to slide across to access any stores. It was working yesterday, but today every time I slide it, I get an error. I've refreshed and refreshed to no avail.
Is there a reason I'm getting this pop-up? Is there something I've done wrong during sign-up? I also tried disabling my adblocker to see if that was causing the error when I slide, but nope.
>>
>>9953362

It shows up when Taobao servers are too busy. Usually I try to find another time slot to browse taobao in. When it's a weekday and office hours in China the slide shows up less often.

Although lately the slide seems to be more frequent. I wonder if Taobao needs new servers.

So, quick question for anyone, but especially those from Burgerland - I've noticed quite a few people say shipping from taobao directly was expensive, but it never has been for me, (like ballpark $10-15 an order for two-three items). Is it more of a 'relative compared to what your buying' thing, or have I just gotten lucky? Should it be more? (This is, of course, excluding customs, and I'm terribly sorry for those that have to pay it). The most I ever had to pay was $35, and that was for a wool coat that weighed close to 20lbs.

I just got the quote for my order to New Zealand and just about shat my pants.. Came in around 490CNY which is for 7kg

I was actually in such a fit of rage I thought about going back to my old shopping service, but comparing back to their shipping it actually worked out about 100CNY cheaper.. I apparently am just a dumbass who forgot I used to post 16kg packages that would cost near $200 just to ship..

However, for me in NZ, Taobao ONLY offers this option of shipping which I don't think is EMS as its faster, but also not DHL.. But works out at $16NZD per kg. So depending where youre from, it may be cheaper to go by a shopping service as Taobao doesn't always offer the cheaper shipping options.

It sounds like you get a MUCH cheaper option than me and I am bitter..
>>
>>9955219

I'm not in burgerland.

The obvious thing is that warehouses charge different shipping rates, so it's entirely possible they did pick a warehouse that was more expensive then their usual SS, for whatever reason. One of the warehouse options for my country used to be double the rate for the other warehouse (but it was also the most reliable warehouse), so that particular warehouse cost would have been very close to using a SS.

The other is that SS tend to repack, I've received packages where the accessories and trinkets I ordered from different shops were packed into handbags from a different shop. Whereas when I ordered a hard wicker case from taobao it was a cardboard box containing a wicker case containing nothing, so I basically paid shipping for a nearly empty box. If you buy a lot of fancy containers, or a lot of little things from various stores, you can end up shipping a lot of mosly-empty boxes, so the (volumetric) weight can be rather higher than it would be if you were using an SS who would pack your smaller things into other things to reduce the volumetric weight.

And the third is most SS ask for payment in multiple parts, so when you make an order, along with the price of the item, you've already paid SS fees on those items. Then the shipping afterwards seems much lower. Whereas when you make an order through taobao, the first payment is purely to the store, and then the final payment is actually the warehouse' shipping fee + handling charges + storage fees all at once. Some folks might just lose track that they already paid additional 5% for all their items going through an SS, and then only notice that the warehouse's final payment seems more expensive than an SS's final payment. It's just a perception error at that point but it doesn't stop them from saying shipping is expensive, because they expected the final payment to be less than what they usually pay.

I've got some questions about ordering direct from Taobao without a shopping service, like in the FAQ. I used to use a middleman but it seems they've gone out of business (rip Happybuying). I read through the Google doc and it stops right where my questions start, so I hope someone here is kind enough to help me out.
-Can all items be shipped this way, or will some sellers not use this service?
-Will Taobao combine my parcels? Do they open things and unpack them to save space, or does everything come in its original packaging, placed into another box with everything else?
-Is there any option to get pictures of my items before they're shipped to me, or do I just have to hope that everything arrives correctly?
-Is there any way to estimate shipping costs before I purchase items? (I used to use the calculator on my SS's website, but now it's gone.)
I'd love to hear from anyone who's shipped with one of TaoBao's warehouses before. Thanks in advance!

>>
Is it possible to order a cosplay online and actually have it arrive before the end of this month?
>>
>>9959951

>-Can all items be shipped this way, or will some sellers not use this service?
Some do not. You can add to cart but you try to pay some items will simply be listed as "this item won't ship to the warehouse". Nail and resin accessories are a pita to sort through.

Plus you cannot ship batteries, liquids and powder.

>-Will Taobao combine my parcels? Do they open things and unpack them to save space, or does everything come in its original packaging, placed into another box with everything else?

The last one. You get a big parcel that's full of other parcels.

>-Is there any option to get pictures of my items before they're shipped to me, or do I just have to hope that everything arrives correctly?

The warehouse does not open any parcels. They're not supposed to. If something is missing you take it up with the taobao seller and request a refund for whatever is missing/wrong.

>-Is there any way to estimate shipping costs before I purchase items? (I used to use the calculator on my SS's website, but now it's gone.)

The warehouses charge by weight, rmbxx per kg. So if you can guess the weight of the item, you can guess the shipping.

>I'd love to hear from anyone who's shipped with one of TaoBao's warehouses before. Thanks in advance!

I've only used the warehouses for a couple of years now, but they do have their issues. Anything off 2.taobao.com I'd still use a shopping service, and anything nail-related I'd just use Aliexpress.

reddit has an r/taobao. You might find more help there.

Found this cute bear but I can't tell if it's a replica. It looks a bit like the btssb bear, but I don't think it's exactly the same. what do you think? I looked up the tag "mezzo piano" and it doesn't appear to be a real company, but I don't know.

Taobao age wont accept low value orders, they've told me the minimum is 100. I know the items I need are low value because it's literally only 2 items since taobao forwarding service is rejecting them. Which service is going to be good for a shitty 70 yuan order? I can't find the same things on ali or ebay.
