Taobao offers direct shipping to your doorstep as it enables forwarding services. However, as most items are shipped from warehouses in China, delivery time is usually 7 to 10 days via air and 15 to 25 days via sea.

But, with the inception of local merchants, you can look forward to shorter delivery time. Do change your country location to Singapore to enjoy free shipping with a minimum spend of RMB 299 (approximately SGD$59). You can also use the SG shortcut filter (跨店满¥299包邮SG) to find participating local merchants easily. You won’t have to constantly peek at the front door for signs of the courier driver.

Taobao, founded by Alibaba Group in 2003, has made the grade to become the world’s largest e-Commerce website. Its thriving marketplace records 500 million unique visitors every day with 370 million registered users.
