Nowadays, the trend is to shop online, and that includes popular Chinese website Taobao. Frankly, it’s easy to see why: Taobao seems to have everything under the sun, and the prices are affordable as well. However, there’s still a handful of people who don’t trust online shopping due to issues such as not getting what they ordered or payment security. But now, those worries are over! Taobao has opened a physical store where you can see and feel the goods, and here’s why you should visit!

1) Wide Range Of Products

The Taobao store has more than 1000 products, divided into 6-7 categories. Those categories include mother & baby, home & living, snacks & food and beauty & health just to name a few. Each product has its own QR code, in which you can scan and immediately be directed to the product page online. Once you make a purchase, the item will be then sent to your address. Items which carry price tags can be bought on the spot too!
