Taobao shop (which literally means the fact of searching for treasure on a website) is a Chinese website for online shopping: wholesale or for individuals, whatever. It was coined by Alibaba Group in 2003, and based in China (do you see the link between the Tales of the Arabian Nights? When Alibaba finally finds the magical and gigantic cave with all the treasures and jewels? That's it!That's the point of assimilating the magical with everyday's life.) For European people, this website can be compared or associated with other wholesales websites as Ebay and/or Amazon and lots of other. If you are an adept of Youtube videos, you can easily see people who makes kind of reviews about Aliexpress (another website, presented by Alibaba Group and similar to Taobao), if you want to form your opinion about these websites.
Taobao is one of the marketplace which eases consumer-to-consumer trades, adding a platform for whether small and medium businesses or individual persons to open something which could be a sort of online store. It builds a kind of huge family and it brings together mainly Chinese-speaking consumers (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, and abroad).

The positive point is that sellers are able to post goods for sale either through a fixed price or auctions, and buyers are truly kings!
