    Hi guys,

    It's been awhile since I last post anything on BHW, but I do come back once a while to read new post and learn from you guys. I've been moving around in the last year, I used to live in Australia, for 13 years of my life, now I've moved back to my hometown which is Hong Kong. Doing my master degree here (I study design)

    Anyway, I?m getting poor since it's a full time course, I?m trying to get back to IM to earn some extra cash. I've been reading a lot but still struggling to earn a buck online for a few different reasons. The method that worked best for me is still selling physical product on ebay.

    Well, this is what I do, I buy quality but cheap product on taobao (usually searchable brand or model number products, eg, Fujifilm Instax Mini 50S) I don't buy any replica or luxury brand clothings, it's just look too dodgy on ebay. I communicate with taobao people, get them to ship to my home in HK, and then I list it on ebay australia site. The only problems with this method are that:
    1. I need to do lots of research for a good product with a price that is profitable eg, Fujifilm Instax Mini 50S is a good one (I?ve done research on this one)
    2. It takes time to list it on ebay, promote my listing (I don't have a ebay shop because I only sell when I'm free from uni work - can't afford a shop fee)
    3. I don't have that much money to invest, I can only buy one or two items at a time. It's not very effective and time consuming for the amount of money I make.
    4. And the item location is still "Hong Kong" which still looks a bit dodge, people like to buy from locals.

    So this is what I'm offering (I'm gonna be honest and tell you it's my first time
    doing this but I think it could be a win-win situation that might help some BHWers)
    After we agreed on the product and quantity you're buying:
    1. I will buy products from taobao for you (your researched product-either give me the taobao link to your product or product name, i can search for you)
    2. Communicate with the taobao people (I speak/type fluent Chinese), get you the best offer, I can print screen all price (in RMB) to you
    3. You paypal me the exact amount needed including shipping to HK + a 10% service charge of total amount.
    4. I'll pay for it and get them to ship it to me (to HK)
    5. I'll ship it out to your country as soon as I receive the products, I'll work out the shipping fee (whether you want express or not) and scan you the receipt of the shipping fee.
    6. After you receive your products, you can paypal me the remaining shipping fee to your country. (I'm gonna have to trust you to paypal me the remaining shipping fee)
    7. Perhaps some repeat order if you're satisfy with my service.

    Why contact me instead of other taobao agent?
    - I'm a Loyal BHW users, registered in 2008
    - I'm just a harmless ordinary student trying to make a few bucks. Taking advantage of my move from Australia to Hong Kong.
    - I don't use "pick up from my house shipping service" which charge you more shipping fee, I'm gonna drop off your products at the Local HK post office - which is much cheaper (Note: your product size matters)
    - You can personally contact me anytime. It's a one on one service.
    - You're not paypal-ing money to some dodge Chinese paypal account, mine is Verified Premier account.
    - I have experience with Taobao, I buy a lot myself from there.

    I'll give you my msn/skype so we can communicate easier. Please see I'm not a "newbie" on BHW, but if you don't trust me, then don't even bother PM me. Feel free to go get a taobao agent elsewhere.

    I'm only planning to do this for a few serious and trusted BHW (high rep), so I can make sure the process is smooth. Please be patience with me at time, I need to work out the cheapest postage fee for your country. I don't buy any replica or any illegal items, so please don't bother PM me. Product must be small in scale eg, small electronics. We can discuss in details with stuff I can buy or not if you're interested. OK, please pm me if anyone is interested.

    P.S I cannot guarantee I can help you with every order, it really depends on what's your product and the quantity.
    P.P.S I'm not responsible for any tax issues. (I won't know how it works in your country)
    P.P.P.S Please note: I'm only doing the buying and shipping part for you, I don't do the product/niche research for you.

    Hello, I came across your post while searching for a smaller but reliable shopping service for taobao. I've ordered from taobao using other shopping services and I'm familiar with how it works but I find that the other shopping services shipping prices are crazy high and am skeptical of their honesty.
    Would you be interested in taking a personal order? I know I'm new on here but I have a few accounts in other places to show I'm not some shady buyer.

    Also I can spread the word around some livejournal communities about your shopping service to get you more business if you don't mind smaller orders. I know a lot of girls would be interested in a reliable ss that can speak fluent English and Chinese.

    Thanks for reading this.

    Hi, I also came across your post and this forum when searching for a reliable person to deal with regarding TB.

    I have several accounts with which I can prove I'm genuine and honest, although I'm obviously new to this forum at this stage etc.

    If you would be interested in possibly considering helping me I would be grateful.
    Thanks

    Hi vcd0304, thanks I received your PM, however I cannot reply via PM until I reach 15 posts.
    Could you PM me an email address? Don't want to just spam the BlackHat forums to reach 15 posts! Thanks
