    1. Actually Xianyu is the second-hand marketplace of Taobao, so you can login with your Taobao account. Could you please try it again? as it’s acceptable.

    1. Do you mean that you are not able to chat with the sellers or you can leave them message but did not get any reply?
      If you can not chat, you can download APP 闲鱼 and find the item you want then chat with them by clicking on “留言”. If you can leave message but did not get reply, that’s the sellers’ problem as many of them are not online everyday, so you need to wait or swith to other sellers.

  3. is it possible for you to only pay for the items that i want to buy at Xianyu but the shipping goes to my forwarder warehouse in china?

    1. Yes, you can buy from Xianyu with 42agent service, but have the parcel shipped by your forwarder warehouse in China. When you place order, you can leave the address of your forwarder. We can ask Xianyu seller to send parcel to your forwarder directly or ship to us first, then we do quality checking for you, then we send the parcel to your forwarder. Both are OK, only difference is you pay one more delivery fee from our office to your forwarder if you have the items sent to us first.

  4. When I try to chat with sellers, it says that I cannot and I need to check account violations, but when I do it says I have no account violations?


    1. It may be because of your account not makes the real name authentication yet. Xianyu doesn’t allow to speak with sellers if you not make the real name authentication. So you can make the real name authentication first and try again to talk with the seller.

  5. How to make search of interested items nowadays at Xianyu?
    Some time ago my account has been blocked. And i can not register any new one using non-chineese number.

    1. To be honest, I’m not sure why your account can’t search for items. I checked with Xianyu service, it is better to provide the searching screenshot and your user name, then they can have a check the detail reason for us. And if possible please tell me the blocked reason, I will check with the Xianyu service for how to get it un-blocked. You can contact [email protected] directly. Thank you!
