But we are buying from overseas? Products are cheap, can I buy in bulk?
Trust me, this question went through my mind a couple of times. Being Malaysian, I'm always worried about the cost of international deliveries, especially when I buy in bulk. Fret not, as from my understanding, for large consignment purchases Tmall and Taobao Marketplace are rolling out a new sea freight option for the Malaysian market, applicable to the “Taobao Global Consolidated Shipping” option.
