Came across this article on how to ship Taobao furniture to Singapore. A lot of helpful tips even though I don't buy furniture.
• Narrowing your search results using filters
• Camera function
• Use the “找相似” function
• Live chat function
• Redeeming discount vouchers
The article also has a step-by-step guide on how to shop (+ screenshots), how to do quality checks for products and communicate with sellers. V informative and helpful imo
To shop at Taobao, the most important thing is to be able to find the things you need. If you want to be able to browse and find the items yourself, www.taobaotranslate.com can help you find items you want. There are also guides there that can help you set up Taobao account, shipping from Taobao etc
Some hacks that have helped me:

I've writted a similar answer here:
Tips: For the translation to english, use google chrome and at the taobao home page it will ask you if you want to translate. If it doesn't ask you, just right click and select translate. Voila! Taobao in English! :)
Happy TaoBao (Treasuer Hunt!)
I just found out recently that it is possible to shop perfectly without a need to understand Chinese! There is this digital Taobao Guide available on FB @taobaoguide where u can learn all the 'tricks' n 'secrets' to shopping on Taobao.. See https://www.facebook.com/taobaoguide/
Hope this help!
Can use ezbuy or can use shopee. Both is easy friendly to use.
Hi, I am trying to change the logistic provider, but apparently there is only CaiNiao Air or Sea option ? Pls adv how can I select Lazada logistic?
Ezbuy! Bought stuff from there cos I can't read Chinese. I let down my tutor and school teachers sadly.
I will search for an item that i want on taobao in english first, then look for postings containing chinese characters. Usually that will be the item's name in chinese. i'd then copy and paste it into the search bar and search again!

Use google translate. My Chinese also sucks so I press auto-translate. Not the most accurate but with picture and guess-timation, you know what you buying.
