For those using 1688, which forwarder address did you use? Also, it is not automatically linked, compared to Taobao app (correct me if I am wrong). So need to settle directly with the forwarder ourselves on the shipping fees? Or does merchants on 1688 send the items on direct shipping to Singapore?

Sent from OnePlus ONEPLUS A3000 using GAGT
Login into 1688 with Tb username and password can import delivery address from Tb account. Yes, need to settle directly with any 3rd party forwarders. I have around 10 different forwarders address in my 1688 and Tb account so which one you want? Different circumstances and different scenarios and different loots I use different forwarders. Ecibai is one of it. By the way, 1688 doesn’t banned ecibai warehouse address in case you are only comfortable to settle with ecibai.

Different scenario
1) maybe few pieces of t shirt - ecibai
2) friend asked me to buy power bank for laptop - Sfinex com or direct deal with dexi
3) wanna jia bui bui so buy lot of snack eg raisin, pop corn, all kind of dried food can import legally under personal comsumtion and also has shirt and misc stuff which total can be around 5 - 6 kgs or total cbm is not over 0.05 cbm. That one I will use shunshun com sg (self collect at Paya Lebar warehouse. I stay at east) because can settle with sgd5.5 but that’s excluding 7% gst because is sea shipment. Home delivery is minimum sgd8. Another thing is I will consider to use oops.sg sea parcel because minimum 5kg rmb50 (excluding 7% gst) and has home delivery. Oops sg has permit to import more than 5 kgs via sea shipment. If use ecibai sea shipment then will tio chop carrot head because of the 1.1 x calculation
4) foam prouduct very light weight eg actual weight less than 1 kg but high volumetric weight 5 - 6 kg. Volume limit is below 80 cm x 80 cm x 80 cm or one side is not over 120 cm. I will use Sfinex com air shipment because sfinex only charge base on actual weight. If over the volume limit then oversize fee of rmb150 then BOH hua Liao. So must known the charging rules.
5) certain electrical products are allowed to ship under the official and automatically under cover max rmb2000. All 3rd party forwarders all electrical are automatically sensitive. If lose during the transit, max compensation is usd100 or rmb600 or sgd100

In simple conclusion, understand the charging rules and under different scenarios to decide which forwarder to use.

Previously I could bypass the address block on taobao by removing 1 character from the address but seem like taobao manage to detect it now. Tried to buy stuff again but can't go thru.

One trick I use is to submit the order to a random address then PM the CSO and ask them to change to ezbuy address. No problem, did that 2 times and both times arrived at ezbuy safely

For TAOBAO direct = try to buy a few items.

Else use 3rd party forwarders that can consolidate. It's never worthwhile to buy 1 or 2 items from overseas due to the shipping charges

It's apparently still available but at limited capacity. I ordered a few things and some are already at their warehouse awaiting my instructions to ship them.

Both Dongguan and Zhejiang cannot liao.

If you are buying on PC, on the error message page, you will see "BLOCKED_BY_MTEE" in the URL.
