Many and many oversea friends turn their eyes to China for Taobao shopping in recent years. Taobao is undoubtedly the best choice for online shopping enthusiast. However, you may find it hard to search if you do not know any Chinese. Even though you can use Chrome+Google translator to browse English Taobao, but if you have no idea how to search, it will be difficult to find what you need.

If you have the same situation, no need to worry anymore after you come to this page.

1. Use Taobao English keywords after you turn Taobao pages to English with Google translator. You can see that we list many keywords on this page for each kind of items. For example, if you want to buy a gift for your children, you can use “building block, early education, Parent-child toy, etc.”

2. Add precise keyword when search. For example, if you want to buy a dress, and you input "women dress" in the search bar, all kinds of dress shops will be shown and it takes time to find the one you want. We suggest you adding a precise keyword to narrow down the range. For example, there can be these groups “winter, summer, sweet, Lolita, lace, young's, wedding, cotton, etc”. Adding a precise word such as Lolita dress, then all shops shown will be this kind, and it saves you lots of time.

3. For question on quality and how to know good sellers we advice you check the transaction grade of sellers. If the grade is high, then in most times he is reliable. If it is a new seller, then you need to be careful. Because he may send the items very slowly, or sell bad quality items.

Hope this page can give you an assist to find the item you want, also help to save your time searching on 1688 or Taobao!

PART 1

CHINESE SEARCH TERMS

同款 - Means 'same style' or like 'as seen on', try combining with celebrity names. If they aren't famous for their style or popular in China you may not get much.

Ex. W2C Fentys? Rihanna = 蕾哈娜, so search 蕾哈娜 同款.

明星 - Celebrity. Usually combined with 同款 above. Results in random reps. Mostly China celebs that show up but they wear good stuff

潮牌 - Means something like popular brand? Comes up with random high end streetwear mostly.

Ex. Sweater = 卫衣, so 潮牌 卫衣 will get you lots of Vetements

春 - Spring. Usually gotta combine this with other terms to work.

Ex. 2017 春 同款 for new spring summer items

秋冬 - FW (Fall winter), same as above

新款 - New style. Combine this with the word for shoes and get reps the first page lol. Can't give exact results but you may be pleasantly surprised.

Ex. Shoes = 鞋, so 16秋冬新款鞋 for FW 2016 shoes

家 - Literally means house, combine this with the first letter of the brand you are looking for and it's like 'house of'.

Ex. G家 could give you Gucci, Givenchy or Goyard items, most popular will come up first. Btw suggested this strategy as actually typing in Givenchy etc. comes up with auths

小香 - Nickname for Chanel

风 - Style. But also means wind so combine it with brand name to work!

Ex. Chanel style = 小香风

法国 - France. Can try this if you know the brand is from there

Brand - Brand. I've tried combining with France, doesn't come up with much, but if you start mixing in other terms you get more luck.

小蜜蜂 - Little bee, for Gucci bee motif items. Thanks u/reflutters

GENERAL TERMS:

真皮 - Genuine leather

粗跟鞋 - Block heels

连衣裙 - Dress

T衫 - T-Shirt

包包 - Bag

大码Female装 - Plus size women's wear

卫衣 - Sweater

围巾 - Scarf

钥匙圈 - Keychain

袜子 - Socks

======================================

PART 2

SEARCH TERMS

原单 - Auth fabrics & materials, or 'leftover' pieces from the auth factories that didn't pass quality assesment. IMO it's usually a false claim, but they are usually pretty good quality, so take it as 'high quality', not 'auth factory leftover'

尾货 - similar to term 'yuandan' above, but refers exclusively to supposed leftover items from factories

正品/zp - Authentic. More of a term to avoid haha, but occasionally sellers will attach it to high quality reps
