Right, I'm back and can confirm great experience with TaobaoTrends.com as a middleman!
- Fairly easy system
- Reasonable prices as an agent
- I was sent a photo of my items when they got them (pic)
- $5 postage (China to UK)
- After I paid said postage it took about 10 days to get to me (it was marked as shipped 8 days ago)
- Came in a securely taped up box with large bubblewrap for my 3 plastic figures (more than secure enough)
And now I have my ponies, woo!
Meanwhile, with BuyFromTaobao...
Customer: Why haven't I heard back about my order?
