☆☆Bhiner Taobao Agent Experience!

Hello! <3
It's been quite a while again, I'm very sorry!
I've been back from Japan some time ago, though I'm still trying to settle down, that's the reason I'm late with both blog posts and youtube videos.

Today I am back for a taobao agent review.
Now for those who don't know an agent service is basically a company/a group of people who will buy the items you want in exchange of a small commission, from the sites you are unable to purchase within your country. In this case, this service is from China, and they will buy any item you want to get from the website Taobao, which is China's eBay. They have many different products you won't be able to find eBay, and at some points, even cheaper!
Bhiner Taobao Agent
What I really liked about Bhiner is that they have a very well constructed site for purchases which lets you browse through Taobao within their site. You will be able to see their prices in USD, and because of their site system, you will also be able to track the items that have arrived to them, if your order is ready for shipping, and their photos/descriptions.
Oh also! If you prefer to browse Taobao in their original site, you can copy the link and paste it into Bhiner's search bar when you are ready to add it into the agent shopping cart.
Neat!
It works the same as other services, you choose the products, pay for the products+the small commission, wait for the items to arrive. Once they are in Bhiner's warehouse, you will be getting a shipping notice (after they pack&weigh and calculate the parcel) and after that payment is paid, your items will be shipped to you.
Now I will be writing about my experience once I received the parcel!
The parcel was neatly packed, there were no unnecessary gaps or anything! All the items were seperated with plastic bags as well.

First item in the photo is a tutu I got for my Angelic Pretty dress! It is from Classical Puppets on Taobao. In my opinion they make the best petticoats.
Second item is supposed to be a oversized shirt to the point that it'd look like a dress, at least that's what it said on the Taobao link- but it came as a regular size- slightly large shirt.
The third one and the sixth one form a super cute set! Once it is out of the parcel, it looked like this.

(Please excuse the mess, I wasn't really settled down at Japan when I got the parcel!)
The print of this is adorable!!!

I also got a gym set fpr my Karuta cosplay, though I do not have a photo of it out of the plastic bag.
I will be doing a shoot for it soon, though! <3
More cuties!
There is an egg shirt that I really liked the design of, but I ended up pairing it with my overalls, so the print wasn't very visible ;_;

And another one of my favourites was this Coca-Cola bag!I love everything Coca Cola themed!
And here are some smaller stuff- as well as a windbreaker! That one is Pepsi themed, haha! You can also turn it inside out, so you basically have a dark blue&a red windbreaker at the same time!
I got quite a bit of pins that I plan to use in my new outfits too!
The wig I got was quite long, but as you know- I'm a fan of short hairstyles. So I ended up cutting the wig really short, but still didn't lose the gradient effect.

Another two of my favourites are the space themed watch&the yellow black socks!
It was super cheap- about 2-3 dollars, so I can only hope that it won't stop working, HAHA.
And this is the Instinct inspired coordinate I did with the knee high socks! >:3
Lastly!
I ended up getting these bakes sweets themed tights&brown lolita shoes to match with my new AP dress. I think the colour pallette matched very well, I'm so happy with it! <3
When it comes to shoes, I think Taobao is great because you can find very cheap shoes without having to buy a bad quality one.

About my shipping experience, I gotta say I wasn't expecting to receive everything so quick! (about 5 days!?) When it comes to my orders from other Taobao agents, I always got my order around 1-3 months. But the main reason for this is that I live in Turkey- and when I received this order I was in Japan.
Still, if you need the items urgently, you can always look into the other shipping options, such as EMS, it will cost a lot than the other option, but it will be much quicker if you won't have to deal with customs.

I really hope that this was helpful for you!!
I did my best to use most of the items so that I could give you more info about them- but forgive me for not being able to take photos in all of them yet.
I will be using all of them in my future outfits, so don't worry!

Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments- I will do my best to reply to all!
Bye bye!

  5. Thank you for sharing! I've been interested in ordering from Taobao for years now but I just don't know how to and I suck at navigating myself on the site. XD I've been thinking about using shopping agents but I've never used any before and thus I don't know who to trust. I think I'll check into Bhiner!

    Do you have any example or estimate of what the additional cost is and the cheaper shipping options to Europe? :)

    I also love those items you got! Really cute and funky as always! ♥
