Hi I think I screwed up my ordering really bad. I ordered some stuff on taobao but when I was making payment there was no delivery method. (I think i might have accidentally clicked on direct shipping? idek) okay anyways so now there is no warehouse address or agent address or whatever and my seller’s asking me for a shipping address and I’m not sure what to reply. Also I don’t know how to change the shipping method to be shipped by agents. Can someone help me out? T^TView Comment
