Taobao released a new app called “Taobao lite(淘宝lite)” this is a international verison of taobao app tailored for overseas mobile consumers.It supports international logistics and credit card payments.
But it is still in Chinese which is a headache for most international shoppers.so in this post,I will teach you how to order on this app step by step.
Part 1 – Placing an order
Select the items that you would like to purchase, click “立即购买(Buy Now)”.
You will be led to the Order Page. If there is no record of your shipping address, you will be prompted to add a new one. Otherwise, you may skip to selecting the delivery options.
For overseas shipping, there are currently three shipping methods available – direct delivery by the seller, Ta-Q-Bin direct shipment (for Taiwan areas), Taobao direct shipment (for Singapore and Malaysia) or consolidated shipment – depending on the types of product being ordered.
Note: If you already have a preset address but would like to change the delivery option, you may click on the address and edit the delivery option. After that, choose the shipping method.
Verify your order information. Click “Confirm(确认)” to enter the payment page.
