Taobao-on-the-Go via Skycart has never been easier! If you haven’t explored, Skycart is your personal shopper for Taobao – a Chinese website for online shopping similar to eBay and Amazon.
The reason why I choose to use a third party instead of shopping directly via Taobao is because:
- I shop easier on English sites
- Lesser risk of purchases going missing
- Having someone at the backend to answer any doubts or questions is more assuring
- Price comparing available
- Assistance in sourcing for cheaper alternatives (Read my post)
Homepage of the mobile app features the hand-picked catalog of the best items on Taobao, at no shipping cost! Also, they carry Korea beauty products!
Since I didn’t manage to replenish my makeup items during my recent Taiwan trip, I decided to order it online via Skycart!
So what did I purchase?
You probably might think… “What? It’s all from Etude House? Why don’t you get it from the store?!”
Well, the reason being… I hardly shop physically! Every time I walk into the store, I have no idea what to buy. Or after dinner, the stores will be closing already so I tend to go get my essential items first.
I really am quite an online-shopper so I find sites and apps like this very useful to me. Previously I was looking for some bikini and the one I found on Taobao was a little too much that what I think I should be able to get. I “chatted” skycart’s friendly online customer service up and they helped me to find an alternative at almost half the price! Talk about service!
