  8. 8. How to Search on Taobao ---Find all you need with search box and the right keyword Items/products Search Hover your mouser over " 宝贝”( Items), you will see changes below Items Tmall, which is part of Taobao, dedicated to Brand products with higher quality Shops on Taobao The above three terms define what you are searching for, in default mode, you are searching for taobao products. This is the aim of most users of course. You can also search products from Tmall or search for sellers.
  9. 9. More about Searching on Taobao As we all know, the words we use for searching determine what we saw in the taobao search results. So what words to use for searching? We have given a short list of words you may need for taobao searches, but it is far from enough. You can Google translate your English words to Chinese and then paste into the taobao search box. So easy!
  10. 10. How to filter the taobao search results Let's take "women's shoes" ( 女鞋) as an example to see how to filter the search results. The whole filtering section is divided into 6 parts, listed as A to F. A B C D E F
  11. 11. Section A of the Taobao results filtering Filter by Brands Filter by heel length Here you would find some well-known brands for your search products. You can filter by their brand names. However, this does not mean all the products you see will really be by that brand, since the results are generated automatically and there is no human examination process. So pay special attention if you want to find something of a brand. You can search under "Tmall", the overall quality is higher.
  12. 12. Section B of the Taobao results filtering Hot Selling Elements Trendy Shoes now Related products This part is not quite useful or widely used. But it can help you find more detailed and classified products under your searched term.
  13. 13. Section C of the Taobao results filtering Are you looking for ...? This section gives you the suggested products searches or hot searches related with yours. You can use Google translate or other tools to understand their meaning and filter the results if it is the right term for you.
  14. 14. Section D of the Taobao results filtering All products Used products Products from Tmall Event Promotional products: like 11.11 (single's day) or women's day here. Products with high cost performance Here, the 2 filtering buttons we use most are "all products" & "Tmall prodcuts". Here you need to know the difference between Taobao and Tmall. Taobao and Tmall actually are one, they both could be called Taobao, but Tmall differentiates itself in providing brand products or better quality products, Tmall is kind of high-end.
  15. 15. Section E of Taobao results filtering Overseas Sellers/products with Customer Protection Exclude products from the results with a keyword Genuine Guarantee Live Chat Products with ( Wangwang) Return Guarantee Online products Cash on Delivery This section actually is more useful for overseas customers, it helps you filer products by sellers' certificate (Customer Protection/ Genuine Products/Return Guarantee). Don't forget the filtering of "overseas products", in most cases from HongKong. But this does not mean you have to limit yourself within the overseas products, you can find a reliable taobao agent and let them buy for you from taobao and ship to your house. YOYBUY has enagaged itself in this service for 6 years and we have professional team to help customers worldwide buy taobao products with good quality and low price.
  16. 16. Section E of Taobao results filtering Rank by Popularity -----the most important part you must know Rank by seller's credit Rank by sales Rank by Comprehensive factors Rank by price Rank by new arrivals Filter by inputing a price range Location of products Show only one product of one seller by combing sellers This is the most useful fitering of taobao results for each person, espcially when you want to find something cheap and with good quality. Generally speaking, you can go with the following rules: More sales mean higher popularity and more reliable; Sellers with higher credit is more reliable; Don't buy products like this: very high/low price with quite little or no sales made.
  17. 17.
