RepGuide #2 – Choosing and finding an item

Often you’ll find yourself in a position where you don’t know if a deal is too good to be true. Here’s how you can find taobao items and choose the best items. You also learn how to tell if the offer is as good as it seems and how to find reviews, pictures and more.

RepGuide went from mail list to restricted to registered users to absolutely free access to everyone in 2020!

In the top right corner of you can find the search bar. On mobile it’s at the bottom. It’s the easiest place to find taobao items. Use very loose terms, such as {brand name} t-shirt. If that gives you too many results you can still narrow it down by adding the name of an item. It’ll almost always be worth it to look at every single offer you’re potentially interested in.

Make sure your size and color is available

For this check out the store page on Taobao or Wegobuy.

We strongly recommend using the Find on Superbuy link, not because we get paid but because the Superbuy page has quicker loading times and taobao doesn’t reliably change the configuration sometimes.

Read Reviews on RepArchive

The first stop should be looking at the reviews. Are there any bad reviews?

Inspect QC Pictures

Quality control pictures are very helpful to avoid fake reviews and forge your own opinion. They can be found on RepArchive items with a ? subtitle. You can click the + to extend it to full size and use the arrow keys to move around.

Search Reddit for the Item

reddit rep search

In the description you can find a button labeled Search for this item on Reddit. Click it to search reddit for the item through a google search.

This search functions is better than using the Reddit searchbar, because Reddit only searches titles and text bodys, not comments.

Last step

Choose an item and order it. If you missed how to do that read RepGuide #1.

Tomorrow we’ll show you some quick translation tricks so you can browse Taobao or Superbuy like you never did before!
