For those non-Chinese speaking online shoppers, you might be at a slight disadvantage since Taobao’s site is in Chinese. While it’s not difficult to navigate through the shopping site, the challenge is creating an account in the first place. So here’s what you need to do:

1. Click on the “Login/Signup” button

2. Key in your mobile number. (There is an option to switch the language to English)

3. Enter the verification code sent to your mobile device

4. Create Your Password

Password requirements:

  1. 6 to 20 characters
  2. Only letters, numbers and symbols
  3. At least contains any two types of letter, number and symbol 

And that’s all you need to do to create a Taobao account!

Next, simply download the Alipay app and register using your Taobao account! Don’t worry, the Alipay app is in English! You’ll have no problem with that.

Remember to click through ShopBack before you purchase anything from Taobao to receive up to 10.0% Cashback!

Start shopping at Taobao now!
