How To Buy Cheap & Good Taobao Furniture


Moving to a new home or looking to revamp your space? Like painting on a blank canvas, we understand how tough it is to fill up an empty house. Whether you are feeling excited or overwhelmed, let us shed some insights on how to get more with less.

With technology at your fingertips, gone are the days when furniture shopping was done in brick-and-mortar stores. Personal expression is no longer suppressed with limited variety and hefty price tags.


Buying Directly From Origin – Taobao


You have probably heard about Taobao (if not, read on and discover what you have been missing out!) and how you can pretty much find everything under the sun at ridiculously low prices.

Seemingly Endless Variety

Indeed, the largest IKEA in Singapore boasts an impressive 70,000m2 of retail space. But that is a far cry from the MILLIONS of vendors available on Taobao with a crazy array of variety all within a website, where finding what you need is only a mouse click away.

Sure, you may be thinking, “Hey but I don’t need to sieve through millions of virtual stores at IKEA” – HOLD THAT THOUGHT! This is where our team at SGshop have been working tirelessly to bring you an innovative solution.

Insane Cost Savings

Worried about shipping furniture directly without prior viewing or touching them? That’s just a minor trade off considering how you can save up to 5X the price you’d be paying at local stores.

We understand that it’s inevitable to doubt the quality (though cheap doesn’t necessary means lousy quality) when prices are unbelievably low. And this is another issue our newly rolled out function will resolve.

Why is furniture in retail stores or local webstores expensive? Well, local distributors have to mark up the prices to cover: rent, manpower, logistics, profits, etc.  You get the gist. But shopping directly from Taobao, you get to translate all those retail markups into incredible cost savings!



We have heard your Taobao woes: Inconsistent quality, unexpected shipping costs, language barriers and more.

At SGshop, we strive to rid these worries for you so you can focus on the most enjoyable part of furniture shopping: Which is, the actual shopping process! Where your only concerns are choosing your desired style, texture, colours, etc.

What’s the difference between Smartshop and our ‘Buy For Me’ service?

Inevitable limitations and common concerns with ‘Buy-For-Me’ service:

“What to do next after my orders are confirmed?”

“Oh, I didn’t know there is 2nd payment?”

“My item has arrived SGshop Guangzhou warehouse, why don’t you send it out immediately?”


With Smartshop, you can now see the total computed price before buying! Unlike ‘Buy-For-Me’, Smartshop provides an intuitive estimation of international shipping fees to accurately predict the total price you pay at checkout, so you only need to make payment once! Less hassle, no hidden costs!
