We’ll admit it – we got pretty excited when Lazada announced the launch of their Taobao Collection earlier this year. If you haven’t already heard about it, Lazada has made it possible for us shop 400,000 of Taobao’s top selling products with a flat delivery fee of S$2.99 – IN ENGLISH. Plus, Lazada has a customer service team on hand to help out if you run into any problems with your purchases.
Which brings us to Taobao’s upcoming mid-year extravaganza: the Taobao 618 sale or 天猫618理想生活狂欢节 / Tmall 618 Mid-Year Sale as it’s officially known *rubs hands in glee*
