  1. Hi Eric,

    Can you go in to a little more detail about how to earn Taobao coins? I am very interested in it, but don’t understand some things. Such as, do we earn coins after transactions, or only by logging in every day and clicking on the “earn coins” button? Are there other ways to earn coins?
