    Can you open up the refund page of an item that I returned that is damaged. The refund page is close so I am unable to apply for a refund.

    Hi Eric,
    Quick question… how do i track the AWB tracking number?

    Up until a couple of weeks ago, you could pay for the international shipping and then you’d have an update on your logistics page with an overseas waybill number which you could have taken to\en and track it. They would then give you the equivalent UPS number so that you could track the delivery.

    But now, all you have available is a certain AWB number and if you use the forwarder’s website to track the number it just gives you a mistaken number error message.

    You know how to get all the forwarding info from this AWB number?
    Thanks budd,

    my sea shipping is already 10 days over from the date of arrival in KL. no update at all in 10 days. everyday message the dex-i cs and all they can do is tell me to wait. finally someone who able to give me the company called DYL with a phone number, i called them and they want me to give marking number and container number, the tracking number i used to check in dex-i tracking is useless. so i go into live chat again with dex-i cs asking for the marking number and the container number. dex-i cs told me they are unable to provide/not in their system. this is so frustrating and i already put in a complain with taobao cs and they will help me follow up with dex-i cs but still ask me to wait for email. what i want is very simple. just tell me where is my parcel and any contact number and reference number then i will go and pick up myself at any sea port. i am totally disappointed with the service

    I had ordered 3 merchandize items from Taobao around 13/7/17. Their tracking list shown the goods reached Lazada warehouse on 27/7/17 & 20/7/17. However, to date, 1 of the item suddenly shown good already received. In actual fact, the goods never reached me. I try contact Lazada, but was asked to refer to Taobao directly. But I have no contact to reach the seller. Pls advice.

    Thanks a lot Eric…
    Your post help me a lot…

  • Paul

    It seems the live chat is not available in english anymore. If you write an email you just don’t get an answer at all, and both numbers listed as “others” ((852)30183610 or (852)22155300) are not connected with an account anymore.
    So actually there is NO custermer service for people who can’t speak fluent chinese on taobao.

    Good that I had a chinese person to help me, but it didn’t matter because also the chinese customer support seems powerless. They asked the seller to send me the product, he refused and that is it.

    I bought a product on taobao, payed twice, got two times the wrong product and now the seller refuses to send me what I payed for.

    Until now I just had positiv experiences with taobao but it seems if someone really wants to cheat you there is absolutely nothing the support can do.

    Hi, I ordered a few items in a single order. However, one of the item didn’t reach me. Then I noticed that the recover stopped at the warehouse and didn’t send to Singapore. Seller said address given to her is such. How can a single order with different mailing address?

Could you let me know how to solve this problem? thank you

    Hello Eric,

    My parcel has not arrived yet (10 days late), I’m unable to track in Skynet, seller asked me to contact China warehouse but didn’t further elaborate to help. However as stated on the delivery info, Zhongtong is the warehouse, Kuadi is the logistic company. So, 2 questions:

    1. Is Zhongtong is the same as Zhongshan(stated above in your blog)?
    2. If they are the same, should I reach out to Zhongsan or Kuadi to sort this out?

    I do not read Chinese so everything is a bit messed up.

    Thank you!

    • Eric

      ZTO is zhongtong,not zhongshan,you need to contact ZTO through livechat.

    • Wendy

      Serve you right that you do not read Chinese. Go buy from “English” sites lor. LOL. I look down on people like you.

  • Gillian soon
