Important Information – Past Superbuy Users Read Below
Superbuy has changed to WeGoBuy as per what their live chat states! This is what they told me and several other users!
Hello, Superbuy is a platform, and the purchasing service is provided by the buyer. Recently, the Superbuy platform is undergoing business upgrade, so the goods purchased by the buyer are strictly controlled, sorry for the inconvenience. To this end, Superbuy selected some other websites that can provide related purchasing services based on user feedback from some well-known forums.
This guide is simply a reformatted version of HyperionFR’s guide to me forgetting the password to that account.
Since this is a “new agent” you can gather your $30 in shipping coupons again upon signing up [click here]
If you currently have a haul with Superbuy contact WeGoBuy’s live chat when they’re available so you can transfer your goods from warehouse to warehouse.
Superbuy may have made this change due to the increase in government involvement with raids/shutdowns of replica factories and they don’t want to risk it.
Your stuff in your Superbuy warehouse will remain in your Superbuy warehouse. Assuming that WeGoBuy is in any way connected to Superbuy you can transfer your stuff to your WeGoBuy account by contacting their live chat. They just started giving notices that they don’t want certain replicas purchased and want to start sending people to WeGoBuy which is why this guide was reworked.

/u/RepGuides here with a revised and detailed update version of the original Full WeGoBuy/FashionReps Newbie Guide and some tips on on how to get your hauls through customs safely.
After the most recent post I’ve decided to go back in the history of /r/FashionReps and update a great guide that helped numerous users. This guide will be revised and rewritten to include all the new WeGoBuy tips and tricks to get the best results while using their service! Several things have changed since the last revision of this guide (over a year old!)
II – General Info About Taobao Agents
1. What is an Agent?
For new users coming to this sub daily it is hard to directly understand the point of an agent. Be honest, you did not do better in your first days/weeks. So instead of redirecting them to the searchbar just explain it to them in 2 sentences.
The main website we buy our reps from is taobao.com. It is like a amazon or eBay for China – solely for China. The problem that results is that we need a connection between your country and China. You cannot buy from TaoBao directly (for most of the countries) and you probably would not understand anything. So here comes the agent in hand. You browse through your favorite TaoBao shops and find some items you want to buy. Now you do not buy it through TaoBao but through your agent (in our case WeGoBuy). WeGoBuy now buys this exact item and lets it deliver to their warehouse. You ask for pictures, measurements, exchanges, returns etc. When everything is fine WeGoBuy will package everything and deliver it to you. They are the connection between you and TaoBao.
2. Which agent to use?
I have experience with many agents and it would be fair for me to compare them. I do not want to call out Agents and tell about bad experiences with them but I will tell you that WeGoBuy was the one with the most professional, honest, fast and caring service I could ever experience. If it would not be good it would not be the most popular agent ever. In my last Guide I compared prices of each agents and showed you how there is more than “no service fee”, “cheaper shipping costs” since in the end every agent somehow earns his profit. There is no real price difference between agents, just use the one that will give you the best experience. In this Guide I will continue to make examples and tutorials only about WeGoBuy. I am sorry if you use another agent but just keep WeGoBuy in mind when you plan your next haul.
Use any agent you want, there is very little price differences when it comes to agents and depending where you are located in the world prices will differ.
III – The WeGoBuy Guide + $30 Discount.
1. Signing up + Get $30 Shipping Coupons/Discounts
Just press on the little “Sign Up” text on the top right corner and fill in the info. That’s it. To redeem your $30 worth of Shipping Coupons you will want to sign up here. Do not worry, signing up is a normal thing. Beware that I would still advise you to use a unique password that you do not use for other websites – Safety reasons. Also don’t worry about your payment information such as Paypal – You never enter your Paypal email + password on the WeGoBuy homepage, it always redirects you to Paypal’s official website where you log in as usual. WeGoBuy also uses a secure connection between you and them (https).
- Ordering Process – How to order
- Find the item you want on Taobao. Use this subreddit, try to find it yourself with image search or Google translate, whatever. For this example, we’ll use the A$AP Rocky x Guess Tee from UnionKingdom.
- Go to WeGoBuy, and hover over the Shopping Agent button on the navbar. Click the blue box and paste your Taobao link into it.
- You will be taken to a page like this. Here, WeGoBuy translates the color and size options for you, and all you need to do is select the color and size you want. After, you can either Add to Cart or Buy Now. For this example, we’ll assume that this shirt it the only thing you want.
- You will next be taken to this page. Here, you have to select your country from the Choose Destination Country box, then hit submit to be taken to the payment screen.
- If you have an existing balance in your WeGoBuy account from previous purchases that you have returned, you can use that to buy the product. I have 91.06 yuan in my account already, so I just need to pay 18.94 yuan for this 110 yuan tee.
- Here, just select Paypal and pay for your order. Sometimes WeGoBuy will not allow you to use PayPal and that is when you need to simply top up your balance instead of doing a direct order with PayPal.
- Now, just wait until the seller ships his order. Once it arrives in the WeGoBuy warehouse, you will receive a notification.
- Once your product arrives, hover over your username in the navbar and select My Warehouse. Here, you can view QC, or quality control, pictures that WeGoBuy takes. One con of using WeGoBuy is their picture taking skills. To receive better pictures, you have to contact their live chat and give them your order number and request better QC pictures.
- If you’re satisfied with your order, select it and click Submit in the lower right corner. Here, you can choose your preferred shipping method. The fashionreps favorite currently is EMS, but it’s up to you what line you would like to use. Just select the shipping line, then click Submit Delivery Order to have WeGoBuy pack up your products and send it to your door.
- Post your hauls !
Posting reviews is what keeps this subreddit alive. People find new stuff, buy it, review it, search for pieces themselves, buy the, review them. This circle is the Rep Circle of Life. Don’t forget to add pics (Please add a link to all pictures in one album, please. Please.). Please follow these tips to post the PERFECT Review:
- You can use Spreadsheet or Reddit itself to write/structure it, no problem.
- Add a link to all pictures (QC or Fitpics) in one imgur album, please.
- If you use Spreadsheet please do this: You type in all brands/piece names in the Reddit post/title itself. That way we can use the search bar to actually search for items
- Add your stats (weight, height, body type)
If you are unsure whether or not your item has any errors or has a good or bad quality – Just post your QC pictures here. There are so many people who know their stuff, let them check your item and give you advise. Don’t forget this. Don’t forget to write the name of the piece in the title. Always think about the search bar, guys.
IV – FashionReps Terminology & Sizing Chart Translations
1. FashionReps Terminology
QC: Quality Control (QC for short) is talking about pictures that are posted from an agent of an item that was ordered. Users will post these if they’re unsure about the quality and would rather have someone else take a look at them if they’re good enough.
LC: Legit Check (LC for short) Much like the name states, this is a tag used for posts requiring a legit check. Legit checks are a great way of finding out if a item you’re purchasing is authentic or not.
GP: Guinea Pig (GP for short) Guinea Pigging is much like being a test subject. In this instance you will be the first person to order a sellers new item. This means you’ll be the first to get pictures of their product and often times you’ll post them to be checked for quality by the community.
FIND: Much like the name states. Posts with this flair are often linked to new products that haven’t been posted before.
W2C:: Where To Cop (W2C for short) W2C refers to the search for a desired item. Often times will be linked with retail images for an example.
1:1: One to One (1:1 for short) 1:1 refers to a perfect replica. However, not many exist and often times you won’t be able to get these as they’re sold out.
GL: Green Light (GL for short) GL Refers to a user who has given their approval of a QC post.
RL: Red Light (RL for short) RL Refers to a user who has given their disapproval of a QC post.

V – How to Reverse Image Search
Taobao for the average consumer may be hard to grasp and often times users may be hesitant to dive into Taoboas evergrowing catalog of products. Taobao offers a feature called Search via Image. This allows users to easily find items related to the image they upload.
Start here: https://s.taobao.com/search?
1. Click on the camera icon ?
Circled = Camera Icon
2. Upload the image of the product you want to search for
3. Wait for the product to finish uploading
4. Select the appropriate category
5. Done! Now find a reasonably priced and good looking product for your needs!
VI – How To Avoid Customs
Ok this may be the most important part of my Guide. How to avoid customs – especially when you are living in Europe (s/o to Germany). Not everything changed, but there are some IMPORTANT steps that I added to the checklist. DHL is the way to go for Germany, Austria and many more European countries. If you live in the US, Canada you can choose EMS. Do NOT use EMS when you live in Germany or Austria. If you live in the United States then avoiding customs is impossible. This part is mainly for those outside of the U.S.
You may have to look up laws for any import fees or regulations. These numbers are an example for WeGoBuy shipping to Germany, it should work for any country though.
- Stay within .9 of a KG. Read here for more information
- Try to stay at a maximum of 4kg. Do not go over this for the safest rate
- If possible ask for no cardboard wrapping, let them package in DHL plastic bag
- Ask for vacuum sealing (Possible in the fewest cases)
- Ask them to wrap up your whole package with tape, a lot of tape.
- Let them put a Commercial invoice on the outside (!)! of your package
- The commercial invoice should have a value UNDER $24 including shipping costs
- The commercial invoice has to be readable, if it has printing errors it has to be printed again
- The commercial invoice has to state the shipping costs with a value >$0
- The commercial invoice has to have a sender address
- Your telephone number has to be stated on the commercial invoice
- Let them send you a copy of the commercial invoice to your email (Will come back to this)
VII – General Tips About WeGoBuy/Shipping
- Use Rehearsel Shipping to avoid paying too much shipping costs
- You can ship shoeboxes – Do not ship more than 2 shoeboxes in one package
- You can ship as many packages as you want simultaneously (Keep calm tho)
- Think twice before shipping shoeboxes, if you don’t need them, don’t ship them and let WeGoBuy throw them away
- If you have a non-Rep haul then you can probably use other shipping methods. Decide on your own.
- I recommend you to use the service called 17Track to track your packages. No matter the tracking number 17Trackusually can decipher it and track it for you.
- If WeGoBuy does not let you pay for your replicas directly through Paypal, just top up your account balance and then pay through your balance
VIII – What Happens When Your Haul Gets Seized By Customs
Outside of United States
Keep. The. F***. Calm. This can have so many reasons. And I want to correct myself: It is a difference between your parcel is held up by customs and your parcel being seized by customs. Let me take all the fear from you.
If your parcel is held up DHL probably just messaged/emailed/called you and they told you some long story about some value declaration and so on. To keep it short: DHL does not trust your invoice/can’t read the invoice/is bored af and wants a proof of payment to declare the value of your haul. For DHL Germany it is really easy to do this. You go to this DHL Linkfill out the information and upload a Paypal/Bank wire/Western Union/Payment Screenshot. For any other country: Search for the email address of DHL Express Customs (not normal DHL) in your country. You can also call the DHL Express hotline and ask them. Email them the same proof of payment screenshot.
The bad side is that you will probably have to pay some importing fees (EUSt in Germany are 19% + 12,50? DHL fees). I can tell you that DHL Customs will not check if you send them an authentic screenshot of your Paypal transaction or if you managed to change up some digits in order to stay under $24. To save the importing fees. I cannot tell you how to do it, though of course. Google inspect element? This is why it was important, that WeGoBuy sent you the Commercial Invoice they put on the parcel – You know exactly how high they declared it and what they stated is inside.
The Tracking status should be “Clearance Event” when they want the proof of payment and should change to “Clearance processing completed” when it is done. This can take up to several days after you send them the screenshot.
If your haul really got seized (Tracking status “Please contact DHL”) there is nothing you can do. DHL will send you a letter where they will ask you for your permission to destroy the items. Just ignore this letter. It will automatically count as a permission (in Germany). There is nothing else. You don’t go to jail, you don’t get a Million $ fine. Some DHL Customs worker told me that if you stay under 3 shoes per package they will not contact the brand. But keep in mind, this is TOTALLY random. If you follow the checklist there is a micro chance that you package will even get inspected. Because inspecting alone is not enough, so many DHL workers just don’t care and pass Nike, Adidas, Gucci Fakes. And if you really are that unlucky, just deal with it. Some sellers send out a replacement for free, some don’t. You, Your family and your future kids will be safe, don’t worry.
Inside the United States
If your package was seized within Chinese borders often times the Agent will refund you the full parcel price. Meaning if your haul went to the value of ?2,000 then you will be reimbursed ?2,000 directly to your WeGoBuy account. This
If your package was seized or taken in for inspection by United States Customs then you will be given a call or a notice that DHL, EMS, or your selected shipping company has took in your package. Do not panic. Often times when they take your package in for inspection they will ask you to provide a receipt or invoice for the declaration of value for your haul. Seizures and inspections are 100% random and aren’t able to bypassed through any method. To keep it short: DHL does not trust your invoice/can’t read the invoice/is bored af and wants a proof of payment to declare the value of your haul. For DHL Germany it is really easy to do this. You go to this DHL Link fill out the information and upload a Paypal/Bank wire/Western Union/Payment Screenshot. For any other country: Search for the email address of DHL Express Customs (not normal DHL) in your country. You can also call the DHL Express hotline and ask them. Email them the same proof of payment screenshot.
After this step you will need to wait for the review period to end and if everything went well then your package will be released to you. If your package was seized and they send you a letter than it is best to say you didn’t order the item and take the loss on the haul.
This rarely happens.
