    Hello

    I am interested in china exclusive figures and want to buy on taobao.

    are there any other proxys than superbuy?

    I am from europe, so when paying with superbuy (currency USD) I am charged 2 times for currency change (1 time Yuan to USD, One time USD to Euro)

    Is there a proxy with Euro/Yuan or a way to bypass the double charges?

    Like neokyo in japan, where everything is charges in Yen so I can pay Yen to Euro.

    Thank for your reply

    I used Bhiner this year. The UI is modern, purchasing is easy, CS is responsive, but shipping can give a headache thread/17863.

    They offer paying in EUR, but I didn't use it - the PLN -> EUR -> CNY rate exchange was insane that time, in comparison to PLN -> USD - > CNY.

    They top-up in CNY is available via Transferwise and Western Union transfer with transaction fees not listed on the site.

    They take 5% proxy fee (or 21 CNY), but offer undervaluing and other services by request www.bhiner.com/... . If you want to avoid proxy fee and you're okay with buying by yourself, they offer forwarder service www.bhiner.com/...

    That is SUCH a great question. Because I was struggling with this since days and have not found a solution yet.

    The exchange rate superbuy has is quite bad. And the shipping + VAT was really high in my first orders ...although the figure box is not that heavy / big. *ugh*

    If I objectively add up all the costs of my first order (older Myethos figure that is hard to find) it reaches the cost I would have paid in a european shop months back.


    The only option I could see is an Alipay account and then you are able to pay in Yuen. I have not yet found out how to get an Alipay account, though. (I think it is an App or somesuch).

    I also heard that some people use Taobao directly. Taobao has a shipping service to international countries.

    If anyone has some more tips, I would be very interested as well!!

    Hello.
    I am based in US. Is Superbuy the best proxy service to use? Or would you recommend other proxy service. I am trying to search for Myethos figures. Thank you!
