Good online shopping sites in China

Good online shopping sites in China

Postby ShanghaiChanges » Sun Jan 16, 2011 11:00 am

So, I'm not like the rich expats who can afford a driver and go anywhere I please or pay for 24/7 'super' ayi to look after everything for me. Right now I need food but can't be bothered to go to the nearest supermarket cos it's Sunday and I want to vegetate in my comfy bed. I could take the taxi, but I want to try something different that could be more convienent. ONLINE SHOPPING!

Back at home you can usually find cheaper stuff and unfortunately my Chinese still sucks so can't really use the the popular taobao (but trying very hard to fix that). SO, in the meantime, what do you guys use to shop online for groceries, clothes, gadgets basically anything. Got any good sites that sell goods that are lower than the rrp?

If the sites you know are not in English but in Chinese, it's still worth sharing because I like to check out new stuff even if I can't read it at this stage :S

If you're lucky and live close to the Hami Lu one, they have a bakery attached as well, that does very good bread... And deliver..

Taobao.

I can't read Chinese, but it truly is a piece of piss as these online ordering websites follow the same format (FYI i have been using online shopping from supermarkets for many a year in the UK....but still, it's not hard!)

Was wondering if you received your goods? Do they accept pay on delivery?

If you are interested, I can give you the name and contacts of two taobao shops for pet supplies (one for cat stuff the other one for dog&cats). They accept order via email and pay on delivery :)
