Comment on How To Buy Directly From Taobao:The Complete Guide 2021 by Eric.
Do not trust those misleading information, only a very very small number of sellers can ship overseas directly.
Most sellers need to send to Canada via Taobao forwarding warehouse.
As for the shipping cost from Taobao to Canada, you need to calculate it yourself based on the weight of the package.
Or when the package arrives at the warehouse, the warehouse will tell you the shipping cost.

I contacted the customer service and they said they do not support sea shipping of electronic products. But many readers said they can buy electronics by sea shipping.
Hi, it is normal, for international orders, the countdown timer is longer.
Hi, as I said in the article above, you can just totally ignore that “confirm my receipt” option, it means nothing to foreigners.
once you paid the international shipping fee, you just wait for packages to come to you. but you will also need to log in periodically to check the status of your packages.

I have already mentioned in the article how to buy directly there. But it is not an easy thing, that’s why ordering directly on 1688 is not mainstream, despite its huge price advantage.
For most products, 1688 is the best choice because many Alibaba and Taobao sellers also purchase from 1688.
here is the address to download the 1688 app:https://3g.1688.com/
