If he use EZbuy, just the 8 pairs of shoes with packaging, easily rocket to 10kg volumetric weight already.

Maybe Ezbuy can do partnership with other China retailers instead, like JD.com(京东) or Suning(苏宁)~
Ezbuy either be one of the official forwarder for taobao or start working with JD or suning to be the official logistics/warehouse for SEA. It's good to have competition, JD should start expanding to Singapore and Malaysia.

Taobao want to kill off ezbuy to protect its own forwarders

Sent from Samsung SM-G935F using GAGT
No taobao ezbuy really bye bye liao
seems TB is dominating the market. but why they want to shoot themselves in the leg? maybe they want to give priority to local buyers first?

i worry abt buying now ahead of 12.12. they having good discounts, but not sure if my purchase will be delayed..

Yeah, currently JD doesn't offer direct shipping to Singapore so if Ezbuy partner with them that will be good!

Are the products offered in JD and Suning comparable with Taobao? If not, have to really persuade the sellers to use these platforms so we can have more choices. Currently I think Taobao products have more varieties, just that their shipping fees to Singapore is absurd

JACK MA: 顺我者昌 逆我者亡!!!

Clearly shows that who is the mainstream and who are the sidekicks here. But I just thought that if EZ haven't been expanding so fast; create much situations for themselves (warehouse sale, prime service, etc) to attract unneeded attention then probably they are still enjoying their parcel forwarding capabilities.

The story is simple actually. You could see that Taobao/Alibaba is uncle jack's baby. So if you wanna carry someone's baby and you don't say hello to the owner first, without understanding the nature of the baby's emotion you went on to play and carry someone's baby then don't blame when the baby bite you or in this case the parent come after you.

Only way to solve this issue is to work with the big players cos the small players cannot handle when the big ones come mess with their business model. For light disruption, it will result in disruption of service intermittently and delays but if the situation goes on unsolved, it could even result in company going bust. It remains to be seen how "greedy" are Ezbuy and are they going to compromise and share the benefits with uncle ma. Frankly, speaking if I were to choose I'll rather have lesser returns and deliver consistent performance. Afterall, its the consistency that invoke re-purchasing decision time after time. This is just a beginning of events and I can foresee that they will keep doing it.

TRUE, that many of you might have known taobao/alibaba are using singpost, lazada and even had their direct shipping logistics to handle shipment. So for them, EZ is just redundant and the sooner they can rid them, then sooner the other counterparts businesses will pick up. This is to protect the interests of its partner. No right or wrong but they are only trying to flex abit of their muscles here to show who is in charge.

Its more or less the same things in Sg context. When you are earning very well like having big monetary gains going in and out of your bank account then the authorities will come after you and run checks on you - tax tributes etc. Also, the reason why EZ was described as 黄牛 maybe you can ask your parents to explain this term better to you. In the olden days, people used to buy cinema or concert tickets where they are openly sold for a higher price. So, this is the part where perhaps MAYBE TB group has gotten enough evidence to show that EZ is doing a 黄牛 business. Personally, I don't wish to state clearly, but I can only say if the business is not profiting then who will wanna go through all the troubles to ship from point A to point B? But in generating profits, one has to examine the troubles which they will run into first before making a decision. Probably, EZ haven't seen this coming when they so decided to step up their game plan.

Well, hope EZ will be fine though not a super big fan of them but I do get some supplies via them. Therefore, their survival is not critical for me but on a whole, I just thought that the consumers can be spoilt for choices if there were more around.

Err, this is only for people who will not expand own horizon and deem that ecibai as simi main forwarder will llst. There are a lot of forwarder agent out there ready to earn the money. I still send stuff to ecibai. In the mean time I also send stuffs to other forwarder agents depends on the nature of the loot. I have my fav parts about ecibai and hate certain part too. Ecibai closed shop then be it. Life moves on.

the problem is the rates they charging
before ezbuy i used vpost and cgw for my US shopping but look at their rates and charges.
the cheapest i ever ship over from US to sg is $3.99 by ezbuy
you tell me which other forwarder can match it?
