Comment on How to Create a 1688.com Account as a Foreigner by Eric.
You don’t have to own a company to buy things at 1688.com. If you register a Taobao account, you can log in to 1688 directly. So, yes, it is better to register a Taobao account first.

If your country does not support it, I suggest you use an agent.
You can find a lot of 1688 agents on Google
You can try a different browser, or register on your phone.

Whether it is a Taobao official or a third-party agent, they have to cooperate with different freight forwarders to ship your products.
Different freight forwarders have different restrictions on products.
For example, some agents can ship some sensitive things, such as CDs, cosmetics, food, electronic products, etc.
This is why you can buy a lot of sensitive things on AliExpress because AliExpress sellers can choose different freight forwarders according to the nature of their products.
But Taobao sellers do not have this choice because most of their consumers are domestic users.
