Step 4

These pages can be also translated to English at the top right of the page. Fill in all the relevant details and enter the verification code, that you’ll receive as a text message.

Extra tip: If you are using Google Chrome, it’s very helpful to use the Google Translate Extension. It translates whole web pages instead of only words and phrases. Use Simplified Chinese, like Taobao and its sellers, all use simplified Chinese.

Step 5

You can either browse through the different categories or use the search bar. If you want to use the search bar, remember to enter what you are looking for in simplified Chinese in order to get the best search results!

After you’ve entered a word, in this example we’ve chosen “dress – 连衣裙”, you can optionally filter your search of brands, material and more (best to use google translate for that) and you can sort them by using these sorting tools:

  • Comprehensive sorting: Sorts search results according to an average of the following parameters.
  • Popularity: Sorts search results according to their page views.
  • Sales volume: Sorts search results according to their number of sales.
  • Reputation: Sorts search results according to the reputation of sellers from customer reviews and ratings.
  • Price: Sorts search results according to price, from high to low or from low to high.
