The sneakers that made me become diabetic xD

Hi in this entry I want to tell you the story that how i became diabetic !! .

Several months ago I was surfing on Internet specially  this page : " www.taobao.com" , just because i like to watch and watch clothing , so everything i like i mark it and save it in a special folder called "future acquisitions " like a huge shopaholic ... xD that actually i'm not .

Algunos meses atrás estaba navegando en Internet especialmente en taobao , solo porque me gusta ver y ver ropa , así que todo lo que me gusta lo guardo en una carpeta especial .

So i sought and sought cool sneakers and I found this babies . i felt in love with them since i saw it

Así que busque y busque tenis geniales y encontré estos bebes !!



But as everybody knows , you can't buy directly to taobao you need an intermediary .
So i heard good comments about " www.taobaonow.com " , that is a page that is dedicated to being an intermediary between you and Taobao  , at the beginning it looked pretty good , so i decided to chose this page as my intermediary , but then everything changed when the firenation attacked ... (?) (ok bad joke )
So I won't tell you bad things about this page , i will tell you terrible thing about it  

Pero como todo el mundo sabe no puedes comprar directamente de Taobao , necesitas de un intermediario , así que yo ya había escuchado buenos comentarios de una página que se dedicaba a esto " Taobaonow "  , así que no hablare mal de está página , hablare pésimo !!!


 In the home page you can see this chart that calculates  the "price " of the item you want to buy depending of where are you from ,weight and what shipping you are willing to pay 


 Ok so i asked for this 2 items the sneakers  in the bottom and this hat 



Originally the Taobao sneakers'  price was ¥ 128 = $23 Dollars  
and the hat's was  ¥ 19.80 = $3 Dollar

but with the intermediary charges

Sneakers 
 + ¥ 15 of Postage = ¥ 143
hat
+15 of Postage = ¥ 34

which gives a total of ¥ 177 -$23 dollars

+10% service fee =  ¥ 227- $37 dollars

it's acceptable right ?

but the shipping fee !!? what about the shipping fee ?

according to my calculations the most expensive price accordant to the weight  would be $25 dollars in the cheapest one , and I thought it was really expensive to be shipped by the one that eBay sellers used to ship the free ones  ( i don't remember the name air- something ) , but that sneakers had to be mine .

In terms of costumer relations they were somehow attentive ... !


De acuerdo a mis cálculos el precio más caro que tendría que pagar de acuerdo al peso era $25 dolares  en el envió más barato , que seria el que usan los vendedores de eBay para los envíos gratis.

let me clarify that you have to paid before, although they haven't bought the product to the original seller

I ordered the black ones but , they told me again and again for 1 or 2 months that the seller hadn't it available , that if i want to wait more or change the product , i always said wait ,but i thing they won't see  solution to that , so they offered me to change it for similar ones , so i found other sneakers alike but in white.

Yo ordene los negros pero me trajeron de aquí a allá con que no había y bla bla bla  , así que los intermediarios me decían quieres esperar o cambiar el producto , que por supuesto espere , pero aun así no vieron solución y me ofrecieron productos similares y encontré unos blancos.

Returning to the the shipping topic 

I expected that the shipping fee would be 25 as i said before , so when the intermediary send me the shipping cost my eyes bled   , the shipping cost was $39 dollars in the shittiest one  .. !!WHATTTTTT THE FUCKING HELL !!!!

Regresando al tema del envio
Yo esperaba que fueran 25 dolares  , pero cuando me enviaron el costo , mis ojos sangraron , eran 39 dolares en el más mierda .

That pissed me off soooooo much but it doesn't ends here , so i proceed to pay but my card was rejected for some reason  , so i asked to the intermediary for another way to pay, hoping it would be Paypal , and sure it was, but they said me "if you want to pay via Paypal you would pay the EMS shipping" ( the most expensive way ) .


Eso me molestó mucho , pero esto no termina aquí , así que procedí a pagar , pero por alguna razón mi tarjeta fue rechazada , así que le pedí al vendedor otra forma de pago  esperando que fuera paypal , y sí , fié así , pero me dijeron que por paypal tendría que pagar el envio de EMS ( el más caro )

I WAS SO SICK THAT I ACCEPT , IT TOOK ME MONTHS IN THE PROCESS OF BUYING THE SNEAKERS  , BUT I REALLY THINK IS AN ABUSE.

YA ESTABA TAN HARTA , QUE ACEPTÉ , ME LLEVO MESES EL PROCESO DE COMPRAR ESOS TENIS  , PERO REALMENTE PIENSO QUE ES UN ABUSO


así que acabe pagando $42 por los productos y $ 65 de shipping  TnT 


So my review to " www.taobaonow.com"

Postage fee  
shipping fee 
customer care  
efficiency  
TOTAL

And They Lived Happily Ever After .

  1. Awesome! I really like what you've purchased. Packaging seems to be thoughtful.

    I would vouch for http://www.chinabuy.com.au and they don't charge a service fee if you're in Australia.
