    Hi guys,

    I've been trying to start a dropshipping business since last month, having read an article
    that items on 1688 are cheaper compared to Aliexpress.
    I am actually building a large but kinda specific niche, i am yet to complete it.
    So far i have gotten my first 3 orders even before completing my store but i seem to not be able to register and verify my email/account on 1688, taobao and alibaba.

    How do i go about this, what am i not doing right, what tips and tricks do you have for me.
    PS: This is my first dropship site

    Sell from Aliexpress first, then figure out other options.
    Too many people believe they can sell anything online just because a guru tells them, test it out first.
    Worry about profits later, if you make enough sales you'll be getting an agent to do all this for you anyway.

    Chinese websites require real-name authentication.I don't think foreigners can register success on 1688.

    Register on Taobao. The same login details can be used to log in on express. Anyway, I think the best thing for you is to get an agent
