Default does anyone know how to sell on taobao

i think some of my stuff would do better on there but i dont know how to sell on there. I know it says you can sell if only youre a Chinese resident or something like that but im sure theres a way around it does anyone know? also another thing would be the language barrier. so it may be hopeless for me to even try i just wanted to know did someone have experience selling on taobao without knowing the language and living in the us?

This would be extremely hard especially if you do not speak Chinese. Even if you are looking to sell directly into markets in the west you still need to overcome getting setup etc.

It may work but seems more hassle than its worth. Also, I dont know what you sell but I would assume there are Chinese selling cheaper than you can buy for.

How do you plan to ship your items to China?

Well then it would seem the only barrier is the Language Barrier.

It's extremely difficult to sell on taobao if you don't know the language.

+1 on being a nightmare. Chinese all want to have a chit chat about stuff before buying. On ebay u might get 1/50 people asking questions, more like 1/2 over there. Thats why all the sellers there have skype

Even though I know Chinese, I do think it's too much chit chat from the buyers. Most of the sellers hire customer services only for that. You still can ask the sellers questions at midnight.

Even if you sign up successfully and come over the language barrier, the marketing fee is huge to survive in TaoBao and you will need to burn out a lot of money for growing the account rating.

If you have your own product or brand, i suggest you could contact the reseller in China to sell and market for you(much cheaper than operating your own account) so that you dont need to be bothered by all those account, language and marketing problem
