Try to use one of your Chinese friend's numbers or have them assist you with it. After that, I'm sure you can change it from that number to your new one (since people get their phones stolen all the time, etc)

It's probably not Taobao that is rejecting your number it could be that you just put the number in wrong or misread the instructions. Try more than one number and just for a test if the other number doesn't work than it could be the system they are using at Taobao that is causing this. If the problem persists just try to contact someone that is in charge of that site and have them walk you through the process to get started.

It is a very good and useful question for foreigners who want to use taobao,and pay online!

You need to go to china unicom or china Mobil to register with your passport first , then you can register in tao bao. In case , tao bao worker still say cannot register, then you have to tell china uni com or Mobil that you want to to use taobao. They can fix it .laugh

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
