November is upon us and that can only mean one thing – Singles Day sale, known as 11.11 Global Shopping Festival on Alibaba’s platforms including Taobao and Tmall! In case you’re new to the whole idea of the 11.11 sale, it runs on 11 November, but that doesn’t mean you should only start putting things in your cart then.
Here’s the rundown of what you can do to prepare for the biggest online shopping event of the year.
LOAD YOUR CARTS
From now to 10 November, you’re free to add things to your shopping cart. For those who are relatively new to Taobao and Tmall, you can get access to a myriad of products from their platforms with the Taobao mobile app. While you’re at it, you can enjoy stacked discounts or collect coupons which will allow you to save more when you check out.
FASTEST FINGERS FIRST
Every day from now to 11 November at 11 am, stand a chance to grab hongbaos worth up to RMB111 on Tmall’s main campaign page. Plus there are also shipping hongbaos worth RMB20 to offset against shipping costs.
USE THE TAOBAO APP
Besides being able to stay logged into your account, the app offers you even more benefits in this year’s 11.11 sale.
