A Bot to Answer All Your Questions about Taobao, Weidian and Shopping from China

Why does it say "risk reminder" when I try to buy an item?

A risk reminder simply lets you know that the item you're buying is a restricted brand. The only real effect this has on you is that you can't use PayPal to buy it, and that you might have to use other shipping lines.

Luckily, circumventing the PayPal restriction is super easy: just go to your account and top up your account balance. Then pay with using your balance.

The explanation is simple: the agents don't want accept Paypal when they are "selling" copyright protected items. When you top up your account you aren't paying directly for the item.

All agents have a "risk reminder" system in place, whether it's Pandabuy, Hagobuy, Cssbuy, Wegobuy, Superbuy, Sugargoo etc.
