Comment on How to Buy From 1688.com As a Foreigner (Full Guide 2020) by Eric.
If you do dropping shipping from Aliexpress, there is a lot of software that can help you automate a lot of tasks, you can easily make dropshipping a big and stable business.
However, when dropshipping from 1688.com, there is no software to help you complete the whole dropshipping process, everything needs to be done manually by yourself.
If you have a lot of orders every day, you can not handle so many orders alone.

Hello, I do not provide 1688 purchase services, maybe a 1688 agent can better help you.
if you want to buy from 1688.com, then yes, you can also alipay tourpass prepaid card.
international Alipay account won’t work on 1688 or taobao.com
some websites can top up, but you can’t use your Alipay balance if your Alipay account is not verified.
After you have topped up, your Alipay balance will be frozen and you will be asked to verify it.
Alipay Tourpass is a solution, but there is a limit to the amount you can top up and use.

here are my answers:
