Taobao shopping - any hacks?

Hi! My friends recently introduced me to shopping on Taobao, but unlike them, my Chinese is horrible and I’m struggling with ordering. Language barriers aside, any nifty tricks to Taobao shopping that few people know and you’d like to share?

Use Taobao Translate search to translate your item terms instead of Google translate, I find it more accurate, since the most important part of shopping at Taobao is to find the items you want. Or if you need guides to buy from Taobao from set up a Taobao account to handling shipping and communicating with sellers, you can also find words to copy paste from there. Very convenient.

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!

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!)
