FWIW, I tried to use them recently, but somehow got flagged as problematic, and they refunded my Paypal payments / closed my accounts. I have a feeling that if you pay with a non-Chinese sounding name, that may look suspicious to them (or perhaps they just don't want to deal with the hassle).
It's too bad, because they're fairly quick to respond and their site is fairly easy to use compared to some of the English language sites (even for someone who doesn't read much Chinese). However, as best I can tell, they were kind of cagey about their reasoning for not letting me use their service.
If anyone has any new suggestions for proxy services they'd like, I'm all ears. I'm not the hugest fan of Taobao Now or Taobao Focus for various reasons (under-communication about issues, slow responses, various fees adding up, sometimes packing / breakage problems, etc.), and I don't want to support the service that was spamming this forum a while back.
