[Beware!] 86Daigou.com Review

I have been craving for China spicy snacks ever since i came back from Beijing trip. Found this website- https://www.86daigou.com/, a taobao agent website which can helps to find and buy sensitive items and ship back to Malaysia.

The website itself looks professional and it is just like taobao.com. Without a second thought and deep research, i’ve placed order for the snacks and chilis i craving. Most of the taobao seller offers free local shipping so it is free to ship from china to 86daigou china warehouse. Once all the items arrived to the warehouse, there is another charges for international shipping which is fair. However, the international shipping charges from 68 daigou is ridiculous!

I received marketing email from 68 daigou before i make purchase and it said there is 50% discount for EMS international shipping. Everything looks promising and reasonable and i happily made purchase of many snacks from 68 daigou.

The rest are the small little items, i am too lazy to share

Actually, i bought this Charles & Keith bag on sales day too because it was on sales.

But, they never send out the parcel and i need to remind them more than 5 times. At last, they asked me to opt for refund because they found the bag was defected before sending out. So, i asked for refund and get refunded after 2 weeks later.

The shipping from warehouse to my house = RM 22+- ONLY, because on 11.11 sales day, Taobao have RMB 1/ 1st KG for international shipping promotion.

Call me angel, i am going to share you some tips to Taobao.

1. For parcel forwarding agent, please use  4PX递四方 . Fast and safe delivery. I’ve been using them for more than 3 times.

2. Make sure you’ve make  2 times payment  when you taobao, 1st payment for the item to deliver to the warehouse ( parcel forwarding warehouse), 2nd payment for parcel forwarding agent to forward your parcel to Malaysia.

3. You have 7-14 days ( more or less, depends on which agent you using) free for storing your items in the warehouse, after 7-14 days, you will need to pay day cost fees.

4. You need to register for Alipay account, it’s very easy to register and you can use M2U to make payment when you taobao.

5. You can always leave a note to your seller ( before you make the 1st payment), ask them to wrap carefully because the items will be shipped to overseas.

6. Do not overspend like me.
