The development of e-commerce marketplaces in China has created new jobs, including a heightened demand for models to pose for online stores advertised on Taobao — the country's leading online shopping platform.


These models, dubbed "Taobao girls," are 23 years old on average and more than 80% of them are employed on a part-time basis. An estimated 38,000 women have worked as Taobao models, with a daily wage that can reach as high as 50,000 yuan.


Is it a new and good way for young girls to make a living by modelling for Taobao?
