Since we have a large number of customers who purchase pre-ordered items from Taobao – especially pre-ordered items that require a long customization cycle such as Cosplay, as well as items from Xianyu. Below we’ve also compiled a list of common scenarios where we may not be able to purchase for you for your reference.

The pre-order items we can’t buy

Generally speaking , we can help you to buy most pre-order items on Taobao. If there are words like â€œå…¨æ¬¾é¢„售”, “全款”, “定金”, “定金,需补尾款” in the title of the product or the sales attribute, sales status, color and other optional options, then we can normally buy the pre-order item for you .

However, we will not be able to purchase it for you if there is any of the following situations:

1, If there are words like â€œä»…限拍了定金的支付” ,”尾款” in the title of the product or the optional options such as sales attribute, sales status, color, etc., it means that the item has entered the payment state of balance . We have missed the payment stage of the deposit for the item, so we can’t buy this pre-sale item for you.

2, If there are words like â€œå”®ç½„” in the title of the product or in the optional options such as sales attribute, sales status, color, etc., it means that the item is sold out and we can’t buy it for you, but we can continue to pay attention to the reservation and release of the store in the later period. When the store release it  again, we will be able to purchase the pre-order item for you.

3, If the item price is unusually high and mostly in the form of 99999.00 or 9999.00, it means that the item has been sold out. Some sellers adjust the price to this mode in order to avoid buyers  placing orders to pay.
