Has anyone had a package labeled as abnormal? Taobao's not allowing me to send it to myself even though its arrived at the warehouse and has a weight.

>> No.10629834

I tried my best to communicate with customer support using Google Translate but I can't figure out what they said exactly.

The sentences with hyphens are my responses.

- 有什么办法可以寄给我吗?还是需要退回给卖家?
- 不幸的是我不会说中文
- 如果我买了东西然后要求仓库发货,那么我的异常订单也会被发送吗?

I'm looking for dark green shoes. Any recommendations? My feet are size 34.

>> No.10630543

google translate is so bad, anon. just come to the thread next time. from what i can tell they're saying one of the sellers packaged one order in multiple packages, but they counted it in the warehouse as 1 order but it's two packages so it will need to be consolidated as two packages instead of one.

How badly marked up is DHL to Canada right now? Just would like to what to expect for a tiny order, or if I would be better off with ems

Anyone got a link to where I can buy the fabric from this bodyline dress? (A non taobao link that a Japanese SS could buy is also fine). I know it was for sale in the past.

The few links I have found my SS have come back to me and said the item was out of stock.

I want to buy some Angelic Imprint shoes, but I don't know if the size guide is for foot size or shoe size. I google translated it and it literally says "Foot size (shoe size.)" My feet are 26.5cm. I bought antainas in size 43 that fit perfectly, but someone told me they run small.

>> No.10630788

didn't this get taken down because the fabric design was part of their design contest and they stole this from the submitter?

>> No.10630790

No, I don't think so? Not the print afaik. It was fabric from a Japanese or Chinese producer and I remember it being sold online in multiple colors (pink, lav, ivory), well before Bodyline ever sold the dress.

I'd honestly buy the dress from bodyline for the print if it wasn't overpriced and poorly designed.

What's a good a-line cage skirt for low-mid poof?

>> No.10630925

Hmm. That makes sense but it's still considered a abnormal package and I don't have the options to consolidate it normal. Thank you though!

>> No.10630952

Please be informed your order is in more than one package.
>- 有什么办法可以寄给我吗?还是需要退回给卖家?
- What ways are there to send it to me? Or do I need to send it back?
Can you please give me your handphone number?
>- 不幸的是我不会说中文
- Unfortunately, I cannot speak Chinese.
This package will normally be consolidated, but since the seller packaged two packages as one and mailed it to our facility, there is one normal and one abnormal order listing. You only need to complete the normal listing, and we will mail the entire package out. Please do it like that, thanks.
>- 如果我买了东西然后要求仓库发货,那么我的异常订单也会被发送吗?
- If I request the consolidator to mail out the stuff I bought, will my abnormal listing also be sent?
If you select the normal package, then the whole package listing will be sent out.

The fabric is by the japanese textile brand COSMO (they do lots of prints like that), not made anymore tho but https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=586316110793 would be the Taobao resale listing of it.

Any good services cheaper than taobaoring/42agent? I just put in a small order and I think I've reached the breaking point with their extra fees. I really miss taobaotrends...

>> No.10631004 [DELETED] 

Cheapest one would be Cssbuy, but they have a history of fucking up parcels in that they forget items.

>> No.10631005

Cheapest agent would by Ytaopal with 0% fee, but they make up for it with a really high exchange rate and very limited shipping options, Reddit really seems to love that one.

Sorry, I didn't find the Aliexpress thread, but they are so sweet!

>> No.10633378

"Usually" doesn't even apply right now cause everything is STILL fucked from covid. There is a limited number of flights leaving China, so packages are moving more slowly.

DHL/FedEx/UPS where available will take 3-7 business days, because they each have their own flights. But be prepared to pay out the ass.
EMS is normally supposed take 5-10 business days. Several anons have reported it taking 2+ months right now.
SAL is supposed to take like 4-6 weeks, it's taking 3+ months rn from what I can see.
Idk about other methods (airmail, etc.)

I would wait before ordering, but also be aware that many SS will store your items for free, even for several months. If you're worried about stuff selling out you can always order now and ship it from the warehouse once you've moved.

Is it worth trying to source a manufacturer via a proxy on taobao's b2b sister site 1688 if I don't speak a lick of mandarin or should I just stick to Alibaba?

>> No.10633639

I don't think its a good idea at all. You're probably going to want to be able to negotiate and hash out details. Doing that through a proxy sounds like a disaster waiting to happen

>> No.10633765

Adding to what >>10633639 said, post your stuff/what you want to say here and I would love to help you translate.

>> No.10633789

Thanks, I wasn't aware you could have the items stored for that long. Do you know if 42agent does this, and if so, if I'd need to contact them to ask first?

I have a dream of making high quality leather handbags but have been severely dissapointed with the quality of silver tone (gold tone is easy because there's solid brass) hardware I keep finding, even from places that claim to offer luxury.
I'm trying to find solid (not plated), nickel-free stainless steel, titanium, or aluminum screw on/Chicago screw style purse feet (pic related) (I've found most other hardware fine, except for zippers which I've given up on at this point) and I for the life of me cannot find them. I'm at the point where I'm considering using actually automotive, marine, or industrial hardware instead since I cannot find anyone that makes the item I'm thinking of

>> No.10633844

to be fair, you're likely not going to be able to find what you want in china. lmao

I've never used them, but as an example, Superbuy stores items for free up to 90 days. Check their FAQ and if it doesn't say, contact their customer service and they should tell you.

>> No.10633894

I might be able to find a manufacturer. I did find one on Alibaba that made regular titanium Chicago screws, I might ask if they can do purse feet instead

Posted in the old school general about a listing that is bought in two payments, but figure it would be appropriate to crosspost it here.


I know how to use taobao/shopping services, but I've never done one of these before. Are shopping services already familiar with how this works, so you don't need to worry about explaining the process to them? I'm also not entirely sure if this one is still going due to the dates listed, but it's still available, so..? Anyways, I don't see guides on how to go about these, so I am forced to ask my dumb question here lmao
