    How do you pay?
    Easy peasy cantonese...

    Let's say the amount is RMB24.50 - you go to Topexpress on Taobao and buy 23 x RMB 1 plus 1 x RMB 1.50

    (that 2 links you can put in you taobao cart!)

    One little thing I like to add: Topexpress is using mainly HK Chinese and Taobao simplified Chinese. When you add the local express company this can be confusing at times. Print out the PDF, it can help a lot.

    Topexpress has changed their local delivery. I usually select -

    "Top special price line in the industrial and commercial district" - which has been next day delivery.

    This time it took 3 days. Apparently, I should have selected the one highlighted in the image attached.
