    Hi.

    I have bought many parts from taobao.com.

    I use this translation site : https://engtaobao.com

    The taobao listings appear in English when you use their search box. When you order, there is a charge.
    They order it in to their warehouse from taobao, then you pay them the costs including shipping.
    I have managed to get key switches and handlebar switches from them plus a flywheel removal tool etc. for my bike.
    It takes 2-3 weeks to ship to the UK.

    I hope this helps.
    Regards

    Jim

I was curious to see if anyone in north America has ever bought anything on taobao.com (which is the Chinese equivalent of eBay) and if so, what has been your experience and how were shipping prices?
    I don't buy from Taobao because I can't navigate through the website so I use a Taobao agent instead. service is good and shipping prices depend on the weight of your purchase. Even after charges, you will find it affordable.

    Taobaofocus have been around for several years and provide the same type of service as a number of Taobao agents. Also Aliexpress which is affiliated thru the Alibaba is a similar Taobao "shop" that has English interface and ships globally...

    Taobao has recently made it much more harder for none Chinese to open up a account with Taobao.
    You need to have an Activision code sent to a Mob number.

    I find with all the other Taobao related sites just don't have the full listing of item that Taobao does.
