How to Import Taobao Products to Shopify

To add a product from Taobao to your Shopify store, you must first load it and then add it to your List. We're working also on a bulk import system and an innovative import Chrome and Firefox extension, so stay tuned.

First Method

Steps:

  1. Go to the "Import" section, enter the URL of the Taobao or Tmall product into the "Import Product" field.
  2. Click "Import Product".

After a few seconds, the product will appear. Have in mind that all contents are automatically translated from Chinese to English, and all values are converted from RMB to the currency of your Shopify store.

  • Cost: is just related to the Taobao product cost and does not include any local or international fees.
  • Local shipping: determined by the Taobao seller and not by Dropast, to ship the product from the Taobao seller to the Dropast warehouse location.
  • Fee: related to the Dropast purchase handling service, which is always just 10% of the Taobao product cost and then completely in line with the Chinese agents market average.
  • Quantity: quantity of products available at the time of import.

To add the product to your List and then edit and import it into your Shopify store, simply click the "Add to List" button.

Second Method

  1. Install the Dropast chrome extension from the Chrome web store - click here
  2. Click "Add to Chrome", confirm it from the popup, wait till Chrome adds the extension and lastly pin it.

When you're on a product page on Taobao or Tmall you will have the opportunity to write the Shopify store name with Dropast app installed and click "Import Product" from the popup extension. After clicking the "Import Product" button, wait until the popup indicates that importing has begun and then proceed to import further products if desired.

Once you've added a Taobao product to your Dropast List, you can import it into your Shopify store.
