Learn Chinese in China


Taobao International Shipping

Recommended Posts


Hi there,


Has anyone ever had any experience of success doing this? I'm interested in shipping some items to the UK and wondered if it is possible? I've contacted a few sellers, and am hoping it is, just simply requires me to pay a higher shipping fee.

The first thing I'd do is look on AliExpress, the overseas version of Taobao. Shipping can be very reasonable, but your package often seems to get sent to Singapore first, where it's re-sent. It can take some time to reach you.

There are plenty of "Taobao agents" that ship internationally for a reasonable fee. Many puer drinkers are using these services, and I've yet to hear of any bad experiences.
