How To Shop On Using Your Mobile Phone

How To Shop On Using Your Mobile Phone, 1688, Ecommerce, is a China e-commerce website where buyers buy products at a very cheap and affordable price, It is coded in Chinese language.

As it is coded in Chinese language, you don't have to be told that this website is mainly for Chinese citizens and those that understand the language, so its hard for non Chinese speaking persons to shop on this website.

I usually open this site but won't know what to do until I got my hands on Adesanya Sunday Abiodun 4in1 videos which can be seen on Konga here, I learnt how to use this website on my PC using Google Chrome browser and Google translator but I can't afford to be on PC all day so I find a way to open this site on my smart phone which I will show you here.

====>First of all, you need the latest version of UC Browser which can be installed from Google Playstore here.

====>Second, launch the UC Browser and navigate to Add Ons, install the Translator Add On and you're good to go.

====>Type in in your browser address bar, wait for it to load, after it has finished loading.

====>Navigate to Add Ons again and click on Translator, it will bring out languages for you to choose which one you wish to translate to.

====>Select the desired language, it will translate and you will buy what you want to buy.

Pictured below is how 1688 looks like on mobile....
                                    Before translated                                 After translated
There you have it, don't start giving excuses that I don't have a laptop that's why I cant buy cheap products on 1688.

I hope this helps? On my next post, I will be teaching how you can buy cheap products from and ship them down to Nigeria.

Stay glued to the blog.
