Looking for free shipping when shopping on Taobao? You’ve came to the right place.
On the very day 65daigou re-brand to ezbuy, we launched a new service. A service so great that change everyone’s thinking of overseas shopping. A service so irresistible that even we ourselves got addicted shopping every day in the office (Hope boss doesn’t read this).
Only passed 3 weeks since it launched, we’ve received thousands of sign up and overwhelming response. Unsurprisingly, this service has begun to influence everyone shopping behavior – “Why should I shop locally anymore?”
Without further ado, let us share the beauty of this service. Be warned, it is extremely addictive. If you think Taobao shopping is enslaving, we welcome you to try this.
We unapologetically introduce you – PRIME.
What is PRIME?
Prime is a membership program, a membership that will literally fill your shopping cart with hundreds or even thousands of products yet have no worry of any shipping fee surprise.
No more worries about shipping fee – How?
Prime offers you an unlimited shipping fee at only $2.99! Regardless the size, weight or quantity. One more time just in case someone misses it – UNLIMITED SHIPPING FEE at only $2.99!
Now, you must be thinking, “Confirm is a gimmick, no free lunch in the world”, “Where got such good deal, they must be jacking up the product cost so to earn back shipping”. Totally normal that people will be skeptical about it, we won’t blame you for that. Especially when you first get to know about – ‘any size, weight or quantity at only $2.99 shipping’.
How is that even possible?!
Yes, you are right. In our industrial, it’s not possible at all unless you’re ready to make a huge loss. Yet, we’re making the impossible, possible. Making shopping globally the same as shopping locally, but with more variety and more savings. First, we shorten the shipping duration tremendously so you can receive the item faster and then ‘removing’ most of the shipping fee so you can save even more than before.
Actually, there is no such thing as ‘removing’ the shipping fee. No spell in Hogwarts has the capability to do that. A secret to share – We’re absorbing all these shipping cost for you!
Here’s the catch. A monthly subscription of $9.90 (limited time only), or 1 year membership for $99.00.

Q: Why are there a few items selling off at a slightly lower pricing by different vendors in Taobao?
A: There are many other Taobao vendors who may be selling similar products. As it will not be possible for us to display all of them into our Prime, they will go through a filtering process. We’ll only select the most reliable vendor (Higher transactions history, Popularity, non-Black listed vendor) into our Prime. Rest assured that the difference is insignificant. What matter most is the reliability of these vendors and how much more you can save with only $2.99 shipping.
Q: What do you mean, agent fee?
A: For those who are new to us or shopping globally online, many vendors (such as Taobao sellers), are individuals or amateurs. Occasionally, these vendors may make mistakes such as sending wrong quantity, size or design, just like how you may receive wrong orders when shopping online. Our job is to provide an inspection so to ensure what you purchase is what you want. For every wrong orders we received in our overseas warehouse, we’ll immediately notify you and reject the item before shipping to you. As such, you’ll save your time, money and hassle.
In other words, it is just like purchasing a travel insurance when you go for a holiday. What more? We bridge any communication gap by helping you to contact multiple sellers on a single platform.
