Yes, 1688’s Chinese suppliers are basically no different from those you find on google and Alibaba, you can do business with them directly if you don’t mind their weak English.

But if it’s your first time dealing with this supplier or a large order, it’s better to split the payment.

Unfortunately there is basically no way to unblock your account.

You can register a new one.

sure, sometimes I ask for a discount for one single item.

I know some Chinese banks like BOC have some branches in Singapore, you can call and ask the local branch.

maybe you can transfer the money to your Chinese bank card at those branches.
