Comment on How To Buy Directly From Taobao:The Complete Guide 2021 by Genesis Cabrera.

Hi Eric,
I have already made an order on taobao and am waiting for all of the order to come and be consolidated to be shipped to the US. I have received almost all of the items and the consolidated shipping came out to be $250 (more specifically 1620 yuan) for only 17.737kg. This makes absolutely no sense since I’ve ordered from taobao in the past and was charged much less than what I’m being charged now and the order weighed a lot more. Back in 2019, I paid 731 yuan for a 16.477kg package. Another thing to point out is that beside each weight it says 小型包裏. I’m not sure what it means, so I would to know if you knew what it meant.

I would really appreciate your help because I don’t know what to do and my Mandarin is not very good. I truly do not understand why they are charging me so much for shipping now. I am using 官方空运, which is really same consolidating forwarding service I used back in 2019 when I ordered off of taobao. The math doesn’t add up and shipping is exponentially higher than before. I don’t know if this the right amount to charge me or not. Please let me know what you think about the situation and what I should do. Thank you.

Comment on Taobao Global Consolidation and Shipping

Hi Eric,
I have already made an order on taobao and am waiting for all of the order to come and be consolidated to be shipped to the US. Only half of the items have arrived at the warehouse, however the shipping is almost $200 (more specifically 1080 yuan) for only 11.469kg. This makes absolutely no sense since I’ve ordered from taobao in the past and was charged much less than what I’m being charged now and the order weighed a lot more. Back in 2019, I paid 731 yuan for a 16.477kg package.
