Maker Buys Series - Buying Smart from China (Taobao)

by Sim Joo Khai, OneMaker Group Pte Ltd
Looking to build a robot, 3D printer or a work of art – but can’t seem to be able to get the parts or tools locally? Why not buy it straight from China? Enter Taobao, the Chinese equivalent of Amazon or eBay – where you can buy almost anything ranging from paints and plastic sheets, to LED’s and liquid pumps.

Yes, service providers who take on jobs like PCB prototype manufacturing, 3D printing, sheet metal fabrication and name card printing – are also on Taobao! Gain an insight into what’s available, tips and tricks on searching smart, how to engage these vendors / service providers, and also on arranging delivery for all sorts of goods big and small.
