For most products, 1688 is the best choice because many Alibaba and Taobao sellers also purchase from 1688.

Search on google.
1688 only supports payment by Alipay balance or linked Chinese bank card.
So, even with personal verified Alipay account, if you can’t top up Alipay or have a Chinese bank, you still can’t pay.
Also, Alipay has a payment limit( up to 200000 RMB a year) if it is verified with a passport.
you can buy or rent a mobile number from another country.

Comment on How to Register A Taobao Account In 2021
Maybe your account has been restricted or blocked.
If you are using Taobao.com on your computer, I suggest you install Aliwangwang.
If you are buying with the Taobao app, the built-in chat room is ok.
You can set up passwords, emails, etc. on this page, but I suggest you use a scan to log in, it’s safer
Yes, you can ask Taobao sellers to do so. But most Taobao sellers are doing retail, they do not have the experience of packing and shipping large orders in cartons. so they may refuse your request.
You can first find a Taobao agent to help you purchase, repacking, labeling, and then ship parcels to your agent.
Comment on How to Contact Taobao Customer Service
You need to contact alipay to check your payment history, if the payment is not successful, the money will be refunded within 7 working days.
