So what is 11.11
>>10494266Black Friday for Taobao
I'm the annoying HMHM anon from the other thread, and at this point I'm sick of their shit and I'm getting a refund. Bought the blouse, waited 30 days with 0 response, asked them when they'd ship, they said Oct 10th. Oct 12th rolls around, I get my SS to ask them where my blouse is, they say it'll take another 10 days because there was a "mistake" with the item, and I tell SS if it doesn't ship in 10 days I want a refund. order updates and says it'll ship on Oct 26th instead of Oct 23rd, it's officially Oct 27 in the USA and Oct 28 in China, so now i'm getting my SS to get a refund from them. just figured I'd let yall know about my poor experience :(
>>10494271> rolls Ok fattychan
>>10494243I HAVE SO MUCH SHIT IN MY CART READY TO GO.Really hoping the sellers don't hike the prices then "put them on sale" for more than the prices currently in cart..That tends to happen every year though, so I guess we will see.
Has anyone ever used AliWangWang to talk directly with a seller? I keep getting a red exclamation mark every time I try to message a seller even though I was able to talk to them and receive a response regarding a pre-order in July. Did I get blocked?
Can you take money out of a spreenow account? I had to cancel something I had already paid for and they refunded my balance. I can't find any information about it and this has never happened to me before.
>>10494429Wasn't there some sort of Taobao tracker that showed price changes? Or am I confusing it for AliExpress.
Can anyone post mint headbows, jewelry/rings, and strawberry tights? Trying to make the most of the sale
>>10494617https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=568739822920i've been wanting to add these to my next order
>>10494596Actually, I think you're right. I remember that too? Ill have a look!
Anyone had issues with buying from SaltySoda before? I placed an order that was supposed to ship within 25 days. It's now been 45+ days and no shipment. The seller hasn't responded to me the last week or so I've been messaging them. What do I even do?
Orders are all split up but a few things are also preorder. Just kind of wanting things for the sake of having them.
>>10495197sauce on the boystyle outfit on the right?
>>10494449Are you using the mobile app?
>>10495197Nice Spirit Blossom Kindred cosplay. Mind posting a review when you get it?
>>10495265Here you go anon!https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=601277128630>>10495392Will do!
>>10495280I'm using the desktop app.
Are agents cheaper to use than buying direct from taobao these days? It looks like 42agent is still doing SAL, is that correct?
>>104956181. No.2. Yes, but takes 3-4 months to arrive atm when not getting lost.
I know they're in the spreadsheet, but do any gulls have personal experience ordering from Hard Candy? They have some stuff I've had my eye on.
How easy is it to buy direct from Taobao these days?
>>10495743As easy as buying from ebay if you use a translator plugin, and it's not a preorder.
>>10495544My aliwangwang messages only go through on mobile now, try that
>>10495807Thanks gull. Going to try it out for 11.11
Okay what the fuck, a few days ago my account started saying that my password is wrong. When I go to reset my password, I get this page. Not using a VPN or anything. Am I fucked?
Has jamie ank made its way into any replica shops? I tried my luck but maybe I’m searching the wrong words
>>10495807i keep hearing people say it's easy, but then i try doing it and it tells me i need to verify my account, which means i have to set up alipay, which means i need to put in my chinese address which i. don't have. am i missing something? no tutorials really cover this part
Taobao's trying to get me. A lot of the shop items I want are already on sale but if you wait until 11.11 they drop further.. but some items the stock is already low. Guess that comes with it being MDZS merch.
>>10496019You don't need a chinese adress for alipay, you seem to do something wrong.
>>10496128Nayrt Can you explain how to do it without a ss please
>>10495629Really? Is that just a 42agent problem, or in general? They still estimate about 3 weeks.SAL would be significantly cheaper if it would still come within 6 weeks or so
>>10496200That's just how global shipping is since Corona.
>>10496183There is nothing to explain, you don't need a verified account to pay unless for items beyond 2grand.
>>10496016There's no need for replica shops when there is multiple factory reject stores.>>10485035
>>10495808Thanks for the tip, I was able to contact the seller and put in my first taobao order. Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly.
Within 4 years of ordering taobao, I've never really gotten much out of 11.11 sales. The discounts were pretty small and negligible, if available at all. Hence I don't really bother with it anymore. Or do I just buy the wrong things?
>>10496325Probably the wrong things, my favorite fabric store got like 20-50% off.
I shipped out an order with Superbuy. on Oct. 3rd it said that it was picked up by the courier and it hasn't updated at all since then. Is this normal in these covid times or should I be worried?
>>10496436That's normal atm.
>>10496270So not worth it to use and agent for SAL, then?
>>10496611idk how useful it is for non-chinese clothing but https://jxrjbh.taobao.com/
>>10495618Have 2 orders 42agent via SAL and they're both getting delayed, but that's the case for all SAL orders. It sucks, but I've only got a month or two left to wait. Sucks even more because I can't order via EMS, that shit ALWAYS gets gets tacked on with overpriced taxes in my country.
>>10496616Nayrt but wow I’m a fan of the fabric selection. Thanks for sharing anon.
>>10496640Ugh that sucks. I was hoping to get around the jacked up shipping prices, but I guess it can't be helped...
Is pruany down?I have not been able to access the site. They still have my shit held hostage.
I'm looking for a pink blouse, ideally with hime sleeves, but any cute airy home blouse would do. Does anyone have any links?
Quick question to you all. I'm planning to get 3 cosplays, and I compared the prices on aliexpress and taobao. The price difference is about 75 euros, but the taobao stuff is still without international shipping. What would be better, ordering through aliexpress or add more to the taobao order to make it "worth" the shipping?
Could anyone please recommend shops that have a wide variety of phone charms? I'm using 手机链 presently, but I'm specifically after the sort of ridiculous and elaborate ones you can find in Japanese stores that are typically miniature food replicas.
Looking for daisy, cherry, and strawberry accessories and jewelry. I can't access the taobao site to search even though I have an account :(
Should I be worried if my order has been sitting in Shanghai for over two weeks? EMS Wuhan. I know it has delays but I thought it was under a week
>>10497041I have been waiting for 4 EMS packages, all stuck waiting to get loaded on planes. The earliest was shipped out on Oct. 10. I believe it's due to a combination of residual Golden Week delays and continued pandemic slowdowns. I've heard that smaller packages tend to go through a little faster.
>>10497065Fuckkkkk, I'm moving at the beginning of December, hopefully I'm not screwed
>>10495197Link for the two nun-style outfits?
Can anyone help me translate these? I'm buying them for someone and I want to make sure I get the right size
>>10497412Bust, Waist, Shoulder, Top Length, Short Skirt| Long Skirt length .. I think!
Does anyone know when this nurse set is supposed to be shipped out?
>>10497483They already shipped out for most people who paid the rest of the money
>>10497412If you're viewing this on a monitor you can use Google translate on your phone. Point your camera at the screen to auto translate.
>>10497493I paid in full and I haven’t heard anything.
>>10497483I’m waiting on mine, but I also ordered the matching necklace. According to their blog the necklace won’t be shipped till November 10, so I’m thinking that’s why I haven’t got mine yet because they’re waiting on the accessories.
>>10497516Ask your SS to hurry and check they probably forgot
>>10497447>>10497512Thank you guys!
Someone was asking for faun stuff few threads ago so I'm gonna leave this here:https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=630612519171

My SAL parcels from august finally arrived, yet the tracking never updated after laving China, so there is hope for everyone.
Does anyone know if it’s usual for antaina to have 11.11 sales?
Recs for shops with old school looking socks?
Any recs for a non-cropped, short-sleeved, sweet blouse in wine?
post more collages, this thread feels so empty
>>10496436The package just arrived today even though the tracking never updated at all. Looks like I was worrying for nothing. It was EMS in case anyone else is in the same boat.
>>10498515Here's my current 11.11 cart if you want.
>>10498517That's good to hear. Were you checking on both 17track and USPS?
>>10498517I'm >>10498266 and had the same problem but with SAL.
Reminder that Taobao added it's 11.11 filter, makes finding things on sale much easier.
>>10498517How heavy was it, and how much did you pay for shipping?
>>10498602how do you use it?
>>10498602>>10498662nvm I found it, thanks for the tip, anon!
Looking for cutsews! These are the only two I've been able to find that come in plus size and they're both meh. Bonus if they're polyester so I can sublimate on 'em.
>>10498523Yes, I was checking both of them. I even went back to check again today once it had already been delivered and there was still no change.>>10498543If it was going to end up being the same thing I should've just gone with SAL and saved myself a few bucks.>>10498612It was 2.2 kg and came out to $69 for shipping. If I remember correctly, they had quoted SAL to be about $45.
>>10498678Thanks for your reply! I might go directly through taobao in that case, since shipping is ~120 yuan for the first kg and ~80 for the second.
Uhm what could this mean?Supposedly it was on its way since Sep 2nd
What are tao brands with burando like quality
>>10498821That it was returned for whatever reason.
>>10498821Usually when I get that status, I receive my package in just a few more days. I think it means your package finally got loaded onto a plane. Check the tracking # in your country's postal service webpage.
>>10499200https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=625316918034Here you go!
Does anyone have any links to socks or tights kind of like these? I'm looking for navy and pink specifically, but can't find anything even reverse searching or similar listing search.
Anyone knows where to get these? All results I get are for actual BJDs
>>10495197links for the purse and the two Korone cosplays?
Posted in the sales thread but no luck. I tried looking for a messenger bag purse like this but couldn’t find anything close to it on taobao. Does anyone have any recommendations or links to one that looks close?

>>10498746Yeah that sounds better! I wish I had the confidence to go directly through Taobao but I need the safety net of an SS to sort out possible problems,
Looking for blank face masks that are made from polyester (at least on the outer shell). I'm really struggling to find anything.
22hours until 11.11 sales are in action.
Anyone know any taobao stores that sell cute, frilly nightgowns fit for lolita? (Like, similar to the aesthetic of that nightgown BABY released a little while ago?)Or links for any frilly pj's with pumpkin shorts?
I have an issue I think several people have had— every time I try to make a new account, within a few hours it gets "frozen" and I can't log in any more. Is it because of the phone number I'm using? Was I missing texts?I tried making several new accounts but it didn't help. Anybody know a fix for this? I made a google voice account just in case I need to use a different phone number too.
How long is SAL taking to get to yall? Should I just pay the extra for ems..?
>>10500226Everything takes about the same atm.
>>10500226I thought they weren't doing EMS? Or is Burgerland the only place they're no longer shipping to with EMS
>>10499835Not Taobao, but I've bought some lolita-esque night gowns from Shein, believe it or not. The key is to look at the details and see what that shit is made of. I avoid anything that isn't 90-100% cotton unless I'm just buying cheap lingerie that I'll only ever wear for like an hour tops.
>>10500226My SALs have been stuck in Japan for 50 days now, I wouldn't imagine EMS to be much different. 42agent told me packages are regularly getting stuck for 3 to 4 months. I can't really do much other than sit around and be patient.
Ughhh.. just put through my order, and Im not sure what happened? Glitch in system cos so many people online maybe?? But I was processing my payment through AliPay and only half the payment went through, the rest of my items automatically cancelled the orders and removed them from my cart? However when I checked my bank account, I have payed the full amount to AliPay. Will this get refunded to me? PLEASE TELL ME THIS WILL GET REFUNDED TO ME!! I added all the shit back to my cart and checked out again and it went through fine (had to pay again)? The other payment is sitting in the "failure" section on Alipay. Any ideas?
post some hot deals
I picked something basic like socks off Taobao and selected an overseas address for shipping. I put in my credit card and it went through. What now? Do I wait for Taobao overseas shipping to contact me with a shipping quote or would they automatically charge it to my card when they ship out?
>no logistics informationthis is my superbuy order I shipped out via EMS on the 2nd. Is this normal?
>>10500761Check the tracking number on 17track.net. Also, EMS is slower than molasses at this point so you're going to be waiting for weeks if you aren't lucky.
Which Aurora&Ariel petticoat would go well with this? I'm a bit confused
What's the term for headphones.
Does anyone have any links to nice fake flower headpieces/brooches
how long does 1/3 delusion take usually ship out preordered costumes/items? Ordered two different preorder items and 42agent won't let me ship them out separately.
Looking for this wig if anyone has seen it.
>>10501102Sometimes preorders can take like a half year depending whether their minimum preorder amount was fulfilled.
Long shot but can someone help me find this brand on taobao.i ordered from them years ago and they have high quality school girl uniforms That I need more of. I can only find her main store which I'd have to do a separate shopping service for https://m.qoo10.jp/shop/yujianxiong
>>10501102For preorders, it'll state on the taobao page when they ship out (eg the purple area here says it ships 2020-12-31), or sometimes it'll be written as "xx 天" meaning it'll ship out xx days after payment. Go back to the taobao page for the preorder and you'll be able to see roughly when they'll ship out. If there's no such purple bar, then it's ready stock and should ship in a few days.Just a note that it's not 100% accurate, I've had Delusion3 stuff ship a little early, though not late. If you ordered a set costume from Delusion3 generally they'll come in multiple bags, if you ordered two costumes in one order that will be one box of plastic bags. It's possible 42agent just doesn't want to deal with being responsible for sorting which plastic bags if you decide to split the order, or something.
>>10500633Your item status will change to "waiting for warehouse to sign" to "waiting for buyer to contract". Click the "consolidated shipping" in the products bought section or the "official shipping" in the left menu (these are the Google translate names) and then after all your items come in you can bulk ship them to your address. For usa its 85yuan for the first 500g and 42y every 500 after. They use the weight of package they receive from the original merchant so it will be too high. After you get your box, measure and weigh it and apply for a shipping refund.
Has anyone seen any 3 strap heels like this specifically in gold?
>order "white" fabric>package in hell for a long white, finally receive it>it's fucking bright gold and nothing like the stock photo>immediately inquire SS about a return and refund (it was a lot and expensive and I'll need to replace all of it)>sure it'll get turned down because it's fabricWell if anyone needs a fuckton of gold fabric you know which anon to go to...
>>10501888Post pics? If its a nice shade I'll buy some off ya
>>10501635How do I get the shipping refund? Do I take it up with Taobao's in-house proxy shipping service?
>>10501907When you go to "official shipping" and check the "logistics order" tab after shipping a combined parcel there will be an option for "complaint/refund". There you upload the pictures and select the option "shipping fee does not match" and "goods have been received". Make sure the box is unopened obviously. Use Google translate to simply say the package weighed less than x kg. You should calculate the volumetric weight (lxwxh in cm /6000) to see which is higher because they will go off the higher #. Wait a couple days and they will ask you to revise your refund request by the specific amount that is over (initially submit for the entire shipping cost). I usually get anywhere from 10-20$ back
>>10501952Thanks, looks like my package made it to the shipping center so I tapped on Pay Shipping and it was ￥85 for what's marked as "0.04kg". I made it to the payment screen with the shipping converted to USD but then I backed out to check and see if I missed any buttons or options, and when I went back in the selection screen for combine shipping at the shipping center was empty. However I was able to bring up the shipping payment screen again and I paid it this time. Now if I go back to the order status screen, it still shows as order having arrived at the shipping center and awaiting the buyer (me) to combine/pay for shipping but obviously there's nothing there. I assume there's a lag between me confirming payment and Taobao processing it and updating the order status page?
>>10501904This is what I sent to the SS. The fabric beside is obviously white fabric for color comparison purposes. It's nice fabric and has subtle glitter, I just needed white and this is obviously not white.
>>10501888>>10502002Some taobao brands label that "milk white" or "rice white", and then white white would be "pure white", so I wonder if it's a mix-up somewhere along those lines.I feel you though. I once ordered a pink camisole and they sent a white one. It arrived right before chinese new year, the shop put up a sign that said they were closed for the holiday just after I received the package. And I didn't really want to rain on some seller's holiday over a $5 camisole even though it was clearly their fault so I just ended up giving that away to some cousin.
>>10501720Whats the source for these shoes? They are gorgeous
>>10501526>>10501244Thank you so much for the help anons! I'm probably going to be annoying and ask 42agent if I can split ship the preorder items with another group order I'm making in a couple months.
>>10498515Here's my thotplay haul for this 11.11
>>10502043They're from a brand in Mexico called Frejaaf! They're not shipping internationally atm though
>>10502002What did the stock image look like? Cause that looks pretty normal for what taobao labels as rice white or generate
>>10502065>elfGood taste. Good luck with that cosplay!
Anyone know if there's a shop that sells this chocolate fabric in pink and brown?

>>10502191Thank you so much!
>>10502039>>10502095Not milk, rice white, or generate/ivory, just "white" on the listing. The stock image was pure white, not ivory or offwhite anything like that.
>>10502211why don't you show us the listing?
I remember trying to buy a single figurine on zen market that was $10 or so but ended up costing $40 in total after shipping. I got the advice that, when buying secondhand overseas, you always buy in huge hauls. Is this the same fr taobao?
>>10502116Link for the heart purse, please?
>>10502171That's perfect, thank you so much!
>>10502235>Is this the same fr taobao?No, because the shipping depends on volumetric weight, so the bigger the parcel the higher the cost.
>>10494243>order 3 cosplays>shipping options range from $100-180>shopping service confirms this is correct and not an error >calculate shipping myself and get the approximately same range The pandemic MAJORLY fucked up shipping costs, huh. I normally pay a little over half of that for a package of the same volume.

>>10502972EEK! If it gives you hope, three of my packages that had been stuck since the beginning of October all came to me at around the same time recently. One of them did like yours and kept scanning as "airlines start shipping" multiple times but it eventually came through. I'm in the US and I really do believe it was because of the election mail-in ballots holding up the post office, so stuff can now finally come through now that it's over.

>>10503346It's just about following them on social media.
Been looking for classic boom themed necklaces/jewellery on Taobao for a while. Does anyone have any links or know what the Chinese term might be?
>>10502112https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z0k.7386009.1997985097.d4918997.4ac3204fPrUxM9&id=564244371740&_u=t2dmg8j26111Not much of either left, though.
>>10503430Thanks! I just realized that it's the same chocolate lolita fabric I've been seeing for years lol. I thought it was something different with just chocolate because the place I first found it didn't show the bottom border with the drips.
>>10503475Oh. I thought you were asking because it's old -- the fabric get sold out over time and then fewer and fewer stores will have them, so generally the really cute older fabric are nearly impossible to find.
>>10503479I miss being in Japan where I could find cute fabric easily. I just found an adorable chocolate print with sweets and donuts in multiple colors that is only available wholesale with a 110 units minimum order and because of the weight like $200 shipping. Technically it's like $3-4 a yard in the end even with that but I don't want to have to waste time reselling it on Etsy to make the money back lol. It's the cost of a new brand dress for fabric for one handmade dress sadly.
any good petticoat shops on taobao I could check out? I already checked out classical puppets and aurora & ariel, but I'm looking for something lightweight for summer
sorry if this is a dumb question but it’s saying my account is frozen and i’m not sure how to fix it, am i just fucked lol?
Hey, I got a message from my SS that the shop sent me size 240 shoes and asked if that was okay but I'm having a hard time figuring out what size 240 means, if anyone knows
>>10504262Why not google shoe size 240, it will be much faster than waiting for an answer here
>>10504266obviously I did that, it gave me a few different conversions, some sites said it was equal to a 6 and some said it was equal to a 7.
>>10504262240 likely just means 24.0cm/240mm
>>10504408Forgot to add, just measure your foot and if it's 23.5cm-24cm it should fit you fine. It'll be much easier than trying to equate it to a us or uk shoe size as those are all over the place with measurements.
>>10503711I got this one recently, it's nice adjustable in shape:https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?id=618943986621
Sorry for tiny photo, but does anyone know where I can find this fabric? I bought some from someone in HongKong years ago on Etsy but gave it away, and now bodyline sells dresses with this print, but it may be a different material. Is any taobao shop still selling it? Is it from a Japanese supplier? It's not available where I initially purchased and I don't want to have to buy and dissassemble a bodyline dress to get more of it.
>>10504445https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-c.w4002-13379026075.53.279956daJ6G9w5&id=586316110793Japanese brand/manufacturer, taobao imports it -- depending on which service you use one or the other is cheaper for you.If you want a Japanese store either Tomato-Nippori will have it, or you can trawl Rakuten (seriously these manufacturers need to start naming or coding their prints already).On taobao you can either reverse image search or trawl through "japanese import"/"foreign trade" fabric for it.Etsy may also have some if you want to try trawling "Japanese fabric"Post the dress when you make it, I love this fabric but I have too many uncompleted projects to tack this one on top, so let me live vicariously through you if you make something out of it.
>>10504484I'll definitely post it! I'm sure I will at minimum do a better job than bodyline given that of all the lace colors for their dress with this print they chose white eyelet rather than a nice brown tulle or torchon lace lol.
Realistically, what's the shipping situation to the US like right now? I'm willing to wait as long as I have a general idea of how long.
Is there a way to reset your password that doesn't involve uploading a picture of your ID or giving out your debit card information? Those are the only options for me on desktop.
>>10504500Heh. I didn't even know Bodyline used this print and had to look it up. Looks like they went white basic bitch with it. Their non-eyelet sucks anyway so it's probably good they didn't try anything too experimental.There's someone on reddit's r/lolita who also made a dress with this fabric, but it was a couple of years back, I think. Good luck with the sewing, I look forward to seeing your dress.
>>10504809Getting worse again because of christmas shopping.
>>10504809Slow slow slow if you pick EMS/SAL/any other budget line. Double 11 shopping and Christmas shopping and the pandemic all combined have all slowed things down to a crawl and it will only get worse until the end of the year. I've waited an average of 30 days for my packages, but I was lucky with one EMS package that arrived in 3 days.
>>10504939I was looking for a more specific time range, can you define "worse"?>>1050497230 days isn't that bad to me, thanks.
>>105049812-3 months for anything.
Fallen into the Genshin hole.
>>10504972I was about to ask how my packages that have been in hell in japan for 60~ days are going to be during this period, but they have finally arrived in my country. god bless this post because it was a good omen. patience is a god damn virtuei'm still going to have 2 more dresses in hell though since I shipped them out on 11.11. godspeed anonst.

Any tip on stores with holographic shoes & accessories?
>>10502116>>10502458What shops did you buy from, anons? These hauls are gorgeous!
Does anyone else think 42agent's service is really bad lately?- selecting an item that has duplicate options, but if it's not available in that option you select they just say 'can't buy' and ignore the other selections.- asking a question about an item, they ignore it and write something about the item itself (and replies are only once a day)- say they'll buy items on the same day, but in a later message they state they bought the items 2/3 days later.This caused an item to be out of stock after I paid, and this isn't shown as 'not available' until weeks after buying the item.The shop had sent out the other items in the order, the item was still showing as 'available'.- item received is wrong colour, they don't say anything (didn't find out until looking at the photos when it's ready to ship)- say they'll combine orders, but forget about this when sending shipping invoice.Asked to combine weeks before.- from beginning of placing order mentioned it was urgently needed, and kept asking for updates for when the items will be ready to ship from the shops/if they have been shipped yet/the ETA for the items to arrive at the warehouse.Say they will keep me updated, but keep getting ignored or saying things that aren't relevant to what I asked.Sorry anons, this has just been a terrible experience.Took a whole month from placing order for it being ready to ship, with bad communication and no idea what was happening with my order at all.These were all in stock/quick shipping items too.Been shopping with them for years, and I'm scared enough to consider other SS.
>>10506158Switch to Superbuy. They have the best communication out of all the SSs I've tried (42agent, Bhiner, Spreenow) and their service is lightning fast. Superbuy agents are pretty good with letting you know of any quality errors and hounding sellers if they haven't shipped your stuff in a timely fashion.Side note: It astounds me how often sellers send out the wrong color/size item. It has happened at least once with every haul I've made so far, so I'm glad Superbuy is good about notifying me and negotiating with the seller.
>>10506149Which items were you interested in, there's a lot of shops I bought from (I'm the anon with all the sweet items)
>>10503131>>10503012It finally got here! Thanks for keeping my hopes up :_:
>>10506177Thank you.. 42agent has been good for a long time so I'm quite sad now desu.I understand if the shop mess up, but as the agents buying the items for us, how did 42agent not notice it wasn't the same colour I ordered? My package is going to be even more late now.They even had the nerve to say they'll get their colleagues to check it's not the colour, like what? The link/item details and everything is on the order page, even a blurry picture shows it's a totally different colour to what I asked for! It's just a shame since this order is part of CGL SS, it's going to be a really late addition for my giftee.I decided to remind them it wasn't correct instead of just shipping it as is so that I can wash my hands of them once and for all after this.
>>10506177>>10506291Does SuperBuy do pre-orders?
>>10506179Are they all from different shops? That's a shame, most of your order is right up my alley.I'm interested in all the strawberry items, necklaces, bracelets, boleros, and tights.Also the pink bows, glitter star clips, headbands, lavender & navy tops, and the black mesh top.

>>10506292Yes. I have one with them currently. I can't vouch for how they'll handle it once the final payment is due, but I'll update this thread (or the next one) whenever it comes through.
>>10506316What do you mean handle it? Do you not just pay the full amount upfront or anything? Also will they mark the package down do you know?I couldn't find that info anywhere.
>>10506313Thank you so much! I'll have a look at these tomorrow when I'm on my laptop.
>>10506292>>10506316>>10506358NAYRT but I just made my first order with Superbuy that involved pre-order items. For one of the items they charged me the deposit and then sent me a message when the final payment was ready to be paid. For the other item they were going to charge me the full price upfront, but I was able to do the deposit first, final payment later. So it probably depends on the agent that gets assigned to you, but it seems they can do either if you talk to them about it.As far as marking down the package, when I submitted my stuff for shipping there was a box where I could input the value I wanted to declare it at. I'm not sure if this is a permanent option or just right now during covid, since a lot of higher-valued parcels are getting hit with customs fees, but it's something you can do..
>>10506147Here you go! It is on only pre-order thoughhttps://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3-c-s.w4002-21271179925.78.689c12d5YBi0HC&id=629250605048
>>10506158I'm still placing orders with them regulary and never had any issues of that kind.
Gulls, if the seller sends the wrong item should you have to pay the 12Y freight fee to return and replace it?It's a 17 yen item.The seller messed up, why should we shoulder the return cost?
>>10506600Just eat the 17 cents holy shit
>>10506600I’m with >>10506608 , it’s not worth it to get your SS to fight the seller over 17 cents
>>10506608>>10506651They sent the wrong colour, I still want the correct colour - that's what I mean.
>>10506659Yes and you should just cough up the 17 cents to get the right color.
Coronavirus precautions at my local international airport has delayed my package and customs clearance. Guess I'll never get my double 11 purchase.
>>10506683i'm here to be sad with you, my taobao order left a nearby transit country 17 days ago with no update yet
>>10505233sent to customs inspection yesterday. i'm so fuckedthere's not even a trillion dresses/shoes or anything but i'm still scared, this has never happened to a taobao order before and i've been shopping for years.
Any Chinese lolitas can help translate the terms I highlighted?I'm trying to order size 1, short JSK with all the accessories. With the sizing, I believe I'm size 1, but that's because I can only guess at which one is bust and don't know what the other measurements are.Thank you in advance for helping a poor desperate bitch

>>10506971>>10506973Thank you so much!
>>10504972Anyone have info on speed of DHL (from Superbuy if it matters) to the US? Wondering if I should eat the cost to try to get something shipped on time for a holiday gift or if I should just go budget and gift it months later. I shipped two Taobao packages EMS and DHL a few months ago and EMS took 3 months while DHL took a week, but unsure how holiday shopping is affecting DHL right now
>>10506990Adding that the EMS package took longer than usual since it was sent back once, but even if it hadn't been sent back initially, the second time it was shipped it still took close to a month and half.
I bought a cosplay using Superbuy that was custom made. According to the shop's information, it would take a week to make and 3 days to send out. I ordered it in October and I kept checking if it was shipped locally and it wasn't. Lost track of time for a bit and now it's there and stored in the warehouse. Is it possible to get a refund?
>>10507219you're trying to get a refund for something you had custom made for you just bc u forgot about it
>>10506990Check the fashion reps community on reddit. Apparently, a huge part of Superbuy's business is people buying knock-offs. The women's subreddit has daily shipping threads where people are sharing how long it's taking for their packages to arrive.https://www.reddit.com/r/RepLadies/
Hey gulls, I'm looking for a short-sleeved blouse for sweet. Any recommendations?
>>10507253It was planned for an event and it passed. It was shipped locally weeks later instead of a week and 3 days.
>>10507454that still is not the shop's fault nor are they obligated to refund you, take responsibility for something you ordered custom made. if you wanted a refund you should have asked for it right when you realized it wasn't coming in time for the event.
>>10507454Yeah, this is your fault anon like >>10507486 said - you should have been given timescales too, custom orders don't take a week from what I know.
>>10495634I bought a christma-y nanchatte set from them. the clothing was super nice and the cardigan super thick, weighty and nice feeling. only complaint was the skirt had a black slip/underskirt (and it wasn't needed, the skirt was a decent thickness). the circumference of the underskirt was way smaller than the skirt itself, so I had to remove it so my hips had room. definitely recommend them.>pic related
