Price range: Type in your ideal price range (in RMB, as shown by the¥) for the item you are searching for. Scroll to the bottom to see the endless options, that Taobao has to offer.~Our favorite feature is the “image search function”, where you can add an image of your desired item, and Taobao helps you find similar ones! So convenient! Add the picture by clicking the camera icon in the black square.~
