Shop Taobao 11.11 Singles Day with ezbuy !

singles day taobao

Are you ready for the biggest Taobao sales event of the year ?

That's right, mark your calendars! The annual, 11.11 (Affectionately known as 'Singles Day', is the single largest consumer online shopping day in China - akin to the Black Friday in the USA, with discounts up to 90%. 

In 2015, consumers spent up to US$14.3 Billion on this 24 hour (From 00:00 to 23:59 Beijing time) shopping event, which takes place on the 11th November 2016. 

During the last 11.11, i made several purchases, some with really steep discounts off the listed price. For example the 120GB SSD and 32GB Micro SD card only cost approximately SG$ 75 - which was a steal!

I will be looking forward to making more purchases this year!

I used the Taobao Direct Freight Forwarder, to ship my purchases last year. One of the main gripes i had for the 11.11 sales event was the logistic delays that hit the Taobao direct shipping companies. Due to the overwhelming demand and sales, several of my purchases were delayed up to 2+ weeks before reaching my doorstep.

As you may know, i have been using ezbuy (When they were 65Daigou) and would highly recommend trying out the 1-month trial ezbuy Prime membership, specifically for this sales event. The unlimited shipping fee at only $2.99, regardless the size, weight or quantity would be perfect for bulky and large orders, limiting shipping costs to a fraction otherwise incurred through alternative freight forwarders.

Tips on Choosing a Freight Forwarder

When choosing a freight forwarder, the 4 key points of Pricing, Speed, Options and Service, are most important. To help you make an informed decision on your choice and to streamline your shopping experience on the 11.11, i have designed an infographic to give a quick comparison between Taobao Direct Shipping and Ezbuy.





I personally enjoy the convenience of self-collection, the attractive shipping fee and frequent promotional discounts on offer. Most recently, i also became a satisfied user of the ezbuy Prime.

Why i would recommend ezbuy Prime

- Unlimited shipping fee at only $2.99.
- Ideal for purchasing bulky and heavy stuff like furniture, appliances or bicycles.
- Includes services such as Purchasing, Inspection, Repacking and After-sales support.
- Home delivery costs $8 for bulky (>8kg) items to save the hassle.

Watch out for more ezbuy promotions and enjoy your shopping on the 11th November!  :)
