    Hello,
    For those that do not know, TaoBao is an online auction site for Chinese residents.

    The Website TaoBaodirect.com was set up to help those living outside of China to be able to order from their auction site.

    In the recent months Taobaodirect.com has said their site is under maintenance and you cannot order from Taobao.

    There hasnt been an update for a long time now. Is there any other way to order from the Taobao site?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
    Greg

    the last 4 orders i placed...got a invoice from paypal from those folks...billing me for all "the instock items" that i had placed orders for...paid....they then issued refunds 5 to 9 days later saying the items were not in stock...and their site claims they check with sellers before invoicing you...and i paid the invoice within hours of them sending it....

    so i gave up on that site...it was a pain in the ass waiting up to a week for holds that paypal placed on funds going out of the account and refunds sent back to me...worthless idiots...

    i say good riddance to that site.
