YoyBuy Review: Is YoyBuy a Reliable and Trustworthy TaoBao Agent?

yoybuy-reviewIf you’re wondering if Yoybuy can help you easily and safely buy items from China, then this Yoybuy review will answer your question.

If you haven’t heard of Yoybuy, where have you been hiding? (Just kidding)

Let’s dive right into my thoughts….

#1. How Long Does YouBuy Exist and How Big Is This Company?

YOYBUY is launched in Beijing in 2008 and the number of stuff was only 2 at first which has now rise to 200 having the site’s employee’s average age-25.

I use chinese search engine to search this website,and found that it belongs to a company named Beijing You Bei Network Technology Co., Ltd.

and I did a little research on the internet,and did not find any scam or fraud complaints of this company.Althrough there are some negative feedbacks from the real users,but that doesn’t mean the entire company is a scam or fraud ,right?

#2. Is This Website Easy To Use?

Yes,A sophisticated website with lots of bells and whistle, YoyBuy is modeled on the style of American websites. Featuring an online account template and familiar Shopping Cart experience, YoyBuy speaks to a large global population with expendable income, offering website versions in Chinese, English, Russian and Spanish.

#3. What Service Do They Offer?

They have two kinds of services: One is the typical taobao agent service and the other one is forwarding service.

I have already explained how to use a typical taobao agent,you can read the details here: Order Procedure Of A Taobao Agent.

Their forwarding service is really a good one which allows you to have an address in China for free. You can buy items from taobao yourself.After reaching at your forwarded address the items will be then shipped to you.

  1. This service is OK if everything goes smooth, if something wrong happens with your transaction (my package didn’t arrive after 1 month, and there is no tracking update since 12/8/16) – they do not take you side or try to resolve the problem with shipping company, they start to lie you and do not provide any real help. They do everything (trying to find any reason) in order not to give you compensation.The level of service in a problem situation is very low. There is no buyer protection that you get for example on eBay or Amazon.

  2. Very bad service, items come faulty one item came empty just the box! I worked with them for over 5 years. When they sent me item that is not as described and different from the one on the picture, i asked for a refund which they refused. I made complaint through PayPal now they blocked my account and I had money there! They are scammers. Also, they weight items differently, when I paid 70$for 2kg item including fees etc. After item arrived I weighted the parcel at home before opening and it was 1.2kg

  3. not Reliable and not Trustworthy they are happy to take your money but if they stuff up they don’t pay back best if you are going to use them use paypal so paypal can get money back and don’t believe any thing they say like if you pay for it then we will pay you back they wont

  4. Hello Eric,
    On my first purchase yoybuy.com is asking me to send a picture of my ID and Credit card as well. Is this normal?

  5. Could you please review this agent and advise:
