Shopping Tips

The Baopals Score

The Baopals score aggregates and weighs several important pieces of information: the product quality, seller service, and shipping speed.

Rejecting Packages

While it’s impossible to physically inspect products before purchasing, you do have the power to reject packages and obtain a full refund or a replacement.

Setting Up Alipay

As an expat, it used to be quite difficult to set up Alipay, but the process has gotten a whole lot easier recently, not least because the interface now has English!

Paying with UnionPay

For those of you wishing to shop on baopals with China UnionPay, we have made the method as painless as possible. Fortunately, no ebanking is required!

Setting Up WeChat Wallet

As an expat in China, there’s no easier way to transfer money to friends, pay the bill at a restaurant, or shop on than to use WeChat Wallet.
