I am building a service to help foreigners buy stuff over Taobao with no headaches and no need to ask family/friends constantly, wait a few months and it will be ready.

The easiest is to have a Chinese friend help. 

If you don't have one, try searching for "Taobao how to guide". You'll get something like http://www.howtousetaobao.com/

Buying on Taobao is easy, you can even buy a number of products without a credit card by paying cash to the kuaidi guy when you receive it. But yeah it can seem complicated at first.

what do you want to buy? You could apply an account and then buy it through your alipay account.

Taobao isn't rocket science. If you have half a brain it is not difficult.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
